Upon an expansion of investment on a scale for which the capital goods available do not suffice" (Mises (1949 (1966), p. 559). It will take some time before investment projects prove to be unprofitable. In Mises's (1936 (1983), p. 4) view, "[t]he capital invested in these [unprofitable] enterprises is lost to the extent that it is locked in. " If this adjustment process is completed, the market rate of interest will again equal the natural rate of interest. 23 The ensuing equilibrium situation (which may differ from the initial position) will persist unless another process of credit expansion again distorts the market rate of interest (or unless the data of the system change).
In this sense, prices play an important role in the dissemination of knowledge. However, in the 1920s and 1930s Mises did not study the role of knowledge and expectations. As Kirzner (1988) stressed, Austrians did not fully appreciate the implications 23 This is not to say that the economy will have returned to its previous equilibrium situation.

They mislead entrepreneurs, thereby leading to ex-post non-optimal investment decisions. These decisions and the resulting ex-post capital misallocation are brought about by the investors' misperceptions as regards the causes of changes in the market rate of interest. In this sense, prices play an important role in the dissemination of knowledge. However, in the 1920s and 1930s Mises did not study the role of knowledge and expectations.
