Abstract The topic of the chapter is the possibility of a consistency between Sraffa’s price system and Ricardo’s theory of money. Some directions in which such consistency has been looked for are discussed, focusing on a specific one based on my understanding of Ricardo’s theory of money (in Deleplace, Ricardo on Money, A Reappraisal, Abingdon: Routledge, 2017) and on some writings by Sraffa prior to Production of Commodities. As such, the chapter aims at contributing to a quest for a modern Classical standpoint on money, if by “modern Classical” one means faithful to Ricardo—the greatest Classical author on money—and consistent with a Sraffa system of prices.
