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).
