What nation experienced extreme hyperinflation, or skyrocketing cost of goods, that contributed to the start of World War II? France Germany Britain Japan
Weegy: Ever since the financial crisis first hit, [ it hasn’t been hard to find people warning that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is about to trigger a raging bout of hyperinflation in the United States through his efforts to inject money into the economy. Bernanke himself has even had to address the issue in a press conference, saying that “hyperinflation is not going to happen.” But how can we tell if Bernanke’s right? One possible approach might be to look back at past episodes of hyperinflation around the world, as Steve Hanke and Nicholas Krus of the Cato Institute do in a fascinating new paper (pdf). The authors define “hyperinflation” as any period when the monthly inflation rate rises above 50 percent. (It ends after a year in which inflation rates don’t rise above this level.) ] (More)
