Abstract:     
During the interwar years in the first half of the twentieth century, Ludwig von Mises emerged as one of the leading economic thinkers in Continental Europe. Though a general economic theorist, Mises’s main contributions early in his career were in the field of monetary theory, monetary policy, and the business cycle. Prior to World War I, Mises had already published his treatise in the field, The Theory of Money and Credit (1912), which sought to integrate the teachings from value and price theory into monetary theory. In doing so, Mises built on the work of Swedish economist Knut Wicksell to construct a price theoretic explanation of the disturbances within an economic system that can result from the manipulation of money and credit.
