First edition, first printing, of this collection of Friedman's essays that, "though written over the course of two decades, embody a single view of monetary theory and, as a result, reinforce one another" (preface). The collection includes the title essay, "which showed that under some conditions deflation would be optimal because it would encourage the use of cash, which costs almost nothing to produce. This essay became one of the most cited in the field of monetary theory" (ANB).
