Jesús Huerta de Soto, professor of economics at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Madrid, has made history with this mammoth and exciting treatise. He integrates sweeping history and rigorous theory to make the good-as-gold case that the institutions of money and banking can be part of the free market - without a central bank, without bailouts, without inflation, without business cycles, and without the economic instability that has characterized the age of government control.
Such a book as this comes along only once every several generations: a complete comprehensive treatise on economic theory. It is sweeping, revolutionary, and devastating--not only the most extended elucidation of Austrian business cycle theory to ever appear in print but also a decisive vindication of the Misesian-Rothbardian perspective on money, banking, and the law.
Jörg Guido Hülsmann has said that this is the most significant work on money and banking to appear since 1912, when Mises's own book was published and changed the way all economists thought about the subject.
Its five main contributions:
• a wholesale reconstruction of the legal framework for money and banking, from the ancient world to modern times,
• an application of law-and-economics logic to banking that links microeconomic analysis to macroeconomic phenomena,
• a comprehensive critique of fractional-reserve banking from the point of view of history, theory, and policy,
• an application of the Austrian critique of socialism to central banking,
• the most comprehensive look at banking enterprise from the point of view of market-based entrepreneurship.
