Could you suggest a good article or video about the Austrian theory of money? I've been discussing  a bit of money theory on another forum, and I would to take a chance to spread the word about the Austrian school of economics.

I've found this one but I find it not quite persuasive for a novice.

I would like rather succinct and, maybe, more theoretical presentation. However, I haven't read this books. Does Rothbard explain the theory?

It is only a basic book to know the general history from an austrian perspective.

If you want more you can try ludwig von mises theory on money and credit:

Thank you, Kelvin. I've found a 24 page Rothbard's paper on the Austrian theory of money. I think that's would be a good start :)
