Hyperinflation, Money Demand, and the Crack-up Boom

Is our economy on the verge of hyperinflation? Mises and Rothbard saw that government-controlled fiat money can endure inflation without destroying the money. That is, unless people believe the central bank will expand the money supply at ever-greater rates.

At this point, the crack-up boom will unfold, and the fiat money is doomed to be worthless scraps.

Join the Mises Circle as we discuss Thorsten Polleit’s “Hyperinflation, Money Demand, and the Crack-up Boom” for a look at how money can be destroyed overnight.

Prior to discussion, Pierre will offer a short presentation on the topic.
