I have to draw your attention to this astonishingly good explanation for exactly what went wrong during the time of the Weimar Republic of Germany. http://www.politicalforum.com/index...s-a-good-thing.499686/page-11#post-1067298520 Trump's desire to reduce the deficit. Can someone explain to me how this is a good thing? If we look at other cases where hyper-inflation occurred you will see that the creation and distribution of money..... was not linked to the increase in real wealth that people want to purchase. For example...... in Zimbabwe....... when people obtained political power who did not understand economics...... .they printed up lots and lots of money... and paid it out to family and friends and government officials that they wanted to curry favour with.......... Money was increased..... but quality products and services WERE NOT... .that is why the Zimbabwe Dollar was so devalued.
