The Money Illusion
New York: Adelphi Company 1928, 1st Edition 2nd printing. () xv, 245pp. Very good. Octavo. Original green boards with black lettering. Five black and white charts in text. Textblock is crisp and clean. Inscribed from Fisher to Professor Frederick Soddy in January 1929 on front free endpaper. Soddy was a chemist who become know for his social commentary later in life. His scientific work on radioactivity with Ernest Rutherford became the foundation for all subsequent work in the field. In 1910 Soddy was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry for his work on the theory of isotopes. This book, which discusses the fallacy of thinking about things in nominal currency instead of real terms, would have been of great interest to Soddy, who by 1920 had became a socialist and believed in the reform of the monetary system. At the time his ideas were disregarded, but since the 1970s they have now been seen as central to ecological economics and green activists. Previously a part of the Gerald M. Meier library, the Konosuke Matsushita Professor of International Economics and Policy Analysis, Emeritus, at Stanford Graduate School of Business. Inscribed copies from the author to other scientists and Nobel Laureates are very rare..
