‎Die Kaufkraft des Geldes. Ihre Bestimmung und ihre Beziehung zu Kredit, Zins und Krisen. - [SEMINAL WORK IN MONETARY ECONOMICS]‎

‎Berlin, Verlag von Georg Reimer, 1916. Royal8vo. Bound in a nice contemporary half calf binding with five raised bands and gilt lettering to spine. Stamps to titlepage, otherwise fine. XX, 435 pp. + one folded plate.‎


‎First German edition of Fisher's seminal work in which he introduced his famous equation of exchange, known as the Fisher Equation. ""No other mathematical formulation in economics, perhaps no other in history save that of Albert Einstein, has enjoyed a greater vogue, and this continues without diminution to our own time."" (Galbraith. A History of Economics, Pp. 152-3).The Fisher Equation states MV=PT. (M=stock of money, V= the velocity of circulation of money, P=price level, T=amount of transactions carried out using money).In theory this means that by varying the supply of money, while the velocity and the volume of trade remained the same could raise or lower the level of prices. Upward movements could be arrested by reducing the money supply.""This was a mojor, even awe-inspiring, step in the history of economics. [...] Later, in the early years of the Great Depression, Fischer and his disciples would be at the center of policy"" they would urge and, in some measures, create a plan to arrest the punishing price deflation of the time. [...] With Fisher the long history of money is brought into the modern era.""Irving Fisher is regarded as being one of the earliest American neoclassical economists and the first celebrity economist. Fisher was also the first economist to distinguish clearly between real and nominal interest rates and he was by Milton Friedman called ""the greatest economist the United States has ever produced.""‎

‎The Debt-Deflation Theory of Great Depressions. - [FISHER'S 'DEBT DEFLATION THEORY']‎

‎[Menasha, Wisconsin], The Econometric Society, 1933. Royal8vo. In a contemporary black half calf binding with gilt lettering to spine. In ""Econometrica"", Vol. 1, 1933. Entire volume offered. Light wear to extremities and small stamp to title-page. A fine copy. Pp. 339-357. [Entire volume: (4), 448 pp.].‎


‎First edition of Fisher's seminal work in which he introduced the concept of 'Debt deflation': a theory of economic cycles that holds that recessions and depressions are due to the overall level of debt shrinking (deflating): the credit cycle is the cause of the economic cycle.The theory was developed by Irving Fisher following the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the ensuing Great Depression. The debt deflation theory was familiar to John Maynard Keynes prior to Fisher's discussion of it, but he found it lacking in comparison to what would become his theory of liquidity preference. The theory, however, has enjoyed a resurgence of interest since the 1980s, both in mainstream economics and in the heterodox school of post-Keynesian economics, and has subsequently been developed by such post-Keynesian economists as Hyman Minsky and Steve Keen and by the mainstream economist Ben Bernanke. ""During the Great Depression, observing the catastrophes of the world around him, which he shared personally, Fisher came to quite a different theory of the business cycle from the simple monetarist version he had espoused earlier. This was his 'Debt-deflation theory of depression', summarized in the first volume of Econometrica, the organ of the international society he helped to found. The essential features are that debt-financed Schumpeterian innovation fuel a boom, followed by a recession between excessive real debt burdens and deflation. Note the contrast to the Pigou real balance effect, according to which prices declines are the benign mechanism that restores full-employment equilibrium. The realism is all on Fisher's side. This theory of Fisher's has room for the monetary and credit cycles of which he earlier complained, and for the perversely pro-cyclical real interest rate movements mentioned above.""‎

‎The Stock Market Crash - And After. - [THE CAUSES OF THE 1929 STOCK MARKET CRASH]‎

‎First edition of this seminal work tracing the causes of the 1929 Stock Market Crash, here in scarce original dust-jacket..Irving Fisher is considered one of the earliest American neoclassical economists and the first celebrity economist. Fisher was also the first economist to distinguish clearly between real and nominal interest rates, and Milton Friedman called him ""the greatest economist the United States has ever produced.""Considered ""the father of monetary economics"" (Pressman, 91), ""Irving Fisher was, in the opinion of many, the leading economic theorist in the United States during the first half of the 20th century. Although his contributions to economic theory and to the development of econometrics ensure him a preeminent position among contemporary economists, he was a versatile man. In his day he was equally well-known as social philosopher, teacher, inventor, businessman, and passionate crusader for many social causes"" (DAB).‎

‎First printing of this important paper which coined the term ""cumulant"" within probability theory and statistics.Cumulants were first introduced by the Danish mathematician and statistician Thorvald N. Thiele in 1889. He, however, called them ""half-invariants"", a name that was not to be used for them in the future. It was not until the present work by the great statistical geneticist Ronald Fisher and the famous statistician John Wishart (eponym of the Wishart distribution) that these ""cumulants"" were given their name, the name that we still use today. According to the historian Stephen Stigler, the name ""cumulant"" was suggested to Fisher by Harold Hotelling. In another paper published in 1929, Fisher had called them cumulative moment functions.The present volume contains many other interesting and important mathematical papers, e.g. Carmichael's ""Expansions of Arithmetical Functions in Infinite Series"" (vol. 34), Mulholland's ""The Generalization of Certain Inequality Theorems Involving Powers."" (vol. 33), etc., etc. ‎

‎The Analysis of Variance with Various Binomial Transformations.‎

‎(No place, Oxford University Press, 1954). 8vo. Stapled. Extracted from ""Biometrika"", 1954. before being bound. Presumingly serving the purpose of an offprint. A very fine a clean copy, near mint. Pp. 130, (1), 131-139.‎


‎First appearance of Fisher's paper on the analysis of variance.""Fisher devised his own extension of significance testing, the remarkable analysis of variance. This was bound in with his novel ideas on the wide subject of the theory of experimental design. He emphasized not merely the desirability but the logical necessity, in the design of an experiment whose results could not be freed from error, of maximizing efficiency (by devices such as blocks and confounding), and of introducing randomization in such a way as to furnish a valid estimate of the residual error. Whereas the time-honored practice in handling several factors had been to vary only one at a time during the experiment, Fisher pointed out that simultaneous variation was essential to the detection of possible interaction between factors, and that this change could be made without extra cost (in terms of experimental size and operational effort). Entrained with these innovations was the use of randomized blocks and Latin squares for the actual disposition of the test units."" (DSB)‎
