Economic Bulletin

Vol. XLVIII No. 11 : November, 2008

This November marks the 90th anniversary of the end of World War I. The war ushered in a period of big government and paper money inflations. The most devastating examples were the hyperinflations in postwar Germany and Austria. The world still is under the influence of those same ideas of government paternalism and monetary central planning.
