Capital and Its Structure
by

Publisher: Ludwig von Mises Institute
ISBN/ASIN: B000XGAFDI
Number of pages: 138

Description:
Ludwig Lachmann in 1956 set out to correct the problem that the economics profession had no coherent and working understanding of capital, a concept so integral to economic science and yet not explored at length since the takeover of macroeconomics by Keynesian theory. Here he presents a robust theory of capital that incorporates an Austrian understanding of the business cycle and the market process. It remains a seminal study written while he was at the height of his intellectual powers.
