Friedman refutes Keynes

First edition, first printing, of what is perhaps Friedman's most significant academic work, in which he argued against the Keynesian use of government policy to regulate the economy. This work resolved several paradoxes regarding the relationship between the wealth and spending habits of consumers and it remains a foundational work in economics.
