First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. An very good copy with some toning to the spine. Inscribed and dated by Irving Fisher on the front free endpaper. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Uncommon signed and inscribed.

In this work, Fisher puts forth the theory that booms and depressions may stem from deranged money, or currency that is behaving irrationally due to various value-skewing factors such as debt, hoarding, confidence, and consumption. Considered to be "the father of monetary economics."
