Description

Organized into three sections of increasing complexity. Part One examines money in isolation--demand for fiat money, a comparison of fiat and commodity monies, inflation and exchange rate. The second section adds capital to study money's interaction with other assets and banking. Lastly, it looks at money's effect on saving, investment and output through its effect on nonmonetary government debt.
