On the Manipulation of Money and Credit. An elaboration of Mises' theories of money, inflation, credit expansion, index numbers, the balance of payments doctrine, and the trade cycle. This includes most of Mises's articles on the business cycle and money and credit manipulation written in the 1920s and 1930s. Mises sets forward the Austrian theory of the business cycle and criticizes all types of govemment intervention and interference with the supply of money: only a complete gold standard is acceptable. In contrast to the position of F. A. Hayek, over-expansion of bank credit comes about only through government policy: the normal operation of the banks cannot generate a cycle.
