Milton Friedman is best known for his 2 monumental books: 'Capitalism and Freedom' and 'Free to Choose'. Money Mischief is less well known, but equally great. Friedman provides a fascinating and easy to understand explanation of what 'money' really is and how it works (or fails to work) in society. In addition to bills and coins, money can take the form of gold, cigarettes, or even large rocks. If this seems strange to you, read the book for a clear explanation. This book also provides the clearest explanation I have ever seen about the complex connection between money supply, growth, and inflation in an economy. Complete with fascinating real world case studies, I found Money Mischief impossible to put down.
