Mises – Inflation and Legislation
by Federico Salazar (Mises Institute, Peru)
Looking for some essays by Ludwig von Mises to be translated into Spanish for the new Mises Institute Peru, I was glad to find an unknown and non inventoried review by Mises of a book written in Polish and also a review by Carl Menger on the teaching of Economics in Germany and Austria. However, one of the most interesting material found was a short paper which Ludwig von Mises delivered in the Viennese Juridical Society on February 3 and March 8, 1920. His lecture was published as “Die Geldentwertung und das Recht” (‘Inflation and Legislation’) in the Gerichts-Zeitung in May 1920. The similarities to the current situation are obvious. You can download this issue of the Gerichts-Zeitung right here as PDF.
