Hyperinflation is when the prices of goods and services rise more than 50% a month. At that rate, a loaf of bread could cost one amount in the morning and a higher one in the afternoon. The severity of cost increases distinguishes it from the other types of inflation. Surviving Hyperinflation with Fernando Aguirre Hyperinflation starts when a country’s government begins printing money to pay for its spending. As it increases the money supply, prices rise as in regular inflation. An increase in the money supply is one of the two causes of inflation. The other is demand-pull inflation. It occurs when a surge in demand outstrips supply, sending prices higher. If hyperinflation continues, people hoard perishable goods, like bread and milk. These daily supplies become scarce, and the economy falls apart. People lose their life savings as cash becomes worthless. For that reason, the elderly are the most vulnerable to hyperinflation. Soon, banks and lenders go bankrupt since their loans lose value.
