The first of Keynes's two main contributions to economic theory and his most comprehensive work on monetary theory. A Treatise on Money anticipated many of the ideas set forth in the General Theory, but differed from the latter in important aspects of its focus, paying closer attention to the theory of price levels rather than levels of output and employment.
