An influential study of the financial relationships by which economic fluctuations and disturbances are transmitted from one economy to another, focusing primarily on the periods 187-1914, the classical period of the gold standard, and 1925-1938, the period of changed conditions between the two World Wars.

Morgernstern is chiefly remembered as a co-developer of game theory through his joint authorship with mathematician John von Neumann of the Theory of Games and Economic Behaviour.
