Liberty Quotation: Mises on the Hard Consequences of Easy Money

Quote Posted on Updated on

Mises“There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion.  The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.”
Ludwig von Mises, Human Action [1949]
