While I found this book very interesting, the real "pay-off" is in the final 3 or 4 chapers where Mises summarizes the arguments for the gold-standard and, most importantly, the inevitable effects of government-issued fiduciary media (non-asset-backed money). This book will demonstrate that principled thinking and rational analyses of historical episodes lead to practical obersvations that appear uncannily predictive of what is happening right now -- even though this book was written over 50 years ago.
