This excellent new book from one of the brightest young economists, Giuseppe Fontana, involves a compendium of issues surrounding uncertainty, money and time. Fontana shines a post Keynesian light onto statements and claims made by well-known neo-classical authors and as such leaves readers with an interesting and informative book to be read and re-read by all those scholars and students involved with monetary economics.
