Wealth, Trade, Prices, And Money

by Robert L Greenfield
     
 
"Greenfield's storyteller's book of economic theory is absolutely wonderful, a real coup. It teaches key lessons of economic theory and does so in an extremely readable, pleasurable manner. And it achieves all this without sacrificing content, depth, or profundity. It's a miracle of good writing that Greenfield combines these characteristics in a single volume.

Overview

"Greenfield's storyteller's book of economic theory is absolutely wonderful, a real coup. It teaches key lessons of economic theory and does so in an extremely readable, pleasurable manner. And it achieves all this without sacrificing content, depth, or profundity. It's a miracle of good writing that Greenfield combines these characteristics in a single volume. Novices and professional economists alike can read his book with profit. Indeed, when I read the chapters on monetary theory, I learned things that I hadn't seen before. And all because of the way Greenfield tells the tale."

--Thomas M. Humphrey, editor, Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, Economic Quarterly

"Greenfield's English is flawless.Even on the microeconomics side, Greenfield puts the emphasis where it belongs, on the system as a whole.... He gives an exemplary treatment of both the 1929-1941 depression and the WWII-era inflation, as well as a very lucid discussion of a monetary system that would have worked better...."

--Leland B. Yeager, McIntire Professor (Emeritus), University of Virginia; von Mises Distinguished Professor (Emeritus), Auburn University

"The stories are very interesting; some are really quite charming. Greenfield is an excellent expository writer."

--Hugh Rockoff, Rutgers University
