Lessons From Weimar Germany On Surviving Hyperinflation

•, Financially Aware

I look at how the hyperinflation happened according to the book "When Money Dies". The hyperinflation after World War 1 in the Weimar Republic of Germany happened in just 5 years. I talk about the types of jobs that did well during the inflation and which ones did poorly. I also look at the different assets like gold, silver, real estate, the stock market, factories, and farming. Some of these fared much better during Germany's hyperinflation than others. There are lessons to be learned on how to prepare for runaway inflation in the US.
