Nice first edition pubished by Adelphi, New York, 1934, English, 442 pages, hardcover, no writing, Octavo, blue hardback with gold lettering on the spine. Pages turning yellow. About Irving Fisher from Wikipedia: Irving Fisher (February 27, 1867 – April 29, 1947) was an American economist, health campaigner, and eugenicist, and one of the earliest American neoclassical economists, though his later work on debt deflation often regarded as belonging instead to the Post-Keynesian school.[1] Fisher was perhaps the first celebrity economist, but his reputation during his lifetime was irreparably harmed by his public statements, just prior to the Wall Street Crash of 1929, claiming that the stock market had reached "a permanently high plateau." His subsequent theory of debt deflation as an explanation of the Great Depression was largely ignored in favor of the work of John Maynard Keynes.[2] His reputation has since recovered in neoclassical economics, particularly after his work was popularized in the late 1950s[3] and more widely due to an increased interest in debt deflation in the Late-2000s recession.[2] Fisher made important contributions to utility theory[4] and his work on the quantity theory of money inaugurated the school of economic thought known as "monetarism."[5] Milton Friedman called Fisher "the greatest economist the United States has ever produced."[6] Some concepts named after Fisher include the Fisher equation, the Fisher hypothesis, the international Fisher effect, and the Fisher separation theorem.
