The text, titled âLa monnaie mesure de valeur,â translated here as âMoney as Measure of Value,â was published in 1892, in the sixth volume of the Revue dâÃ©conomie politique.

This conclusion can also be backed up by our archival research, both at Duke University, whose library contains Mengerâs papers, and in Japan, at the Hitotsubashi Center for Social Science Literature. It was then probably checked by the editorial committee of the Revue before being ï¬nally published under the name of Charles Menger. His name appeared in its French equivalent, as did others at that time, due to the magazineâs international appeal.1 For the English audience, there was no translation of the French essay before the present one, which may explain why this text is rarely quoted in English bibliographies, and why, although being more than a century old, it may appear new to the English reader.
