What is hyperinflation? It’s when a currency becomes worthless, and the population literally uses the money to wipe their ass or make bags to sell.
Hyperinflation happened in Germany, and it allowed a power vacuum to form, and it was seized by Hitler. Hyperinflation makes the population so poor that any idea other than the ones that got them into their current situation sound like a good alternative. Hitler knew that and used hyperinflation as a weapon when everyone was poor.
In Lebanon today, banks are shutting down and making absurdly low daily withdrawal limits from ATMs. It has obviously caused countless riots, and tons of banks were destroyed. Banks told their citizens they would store their wealth and hard-earned money. Then one day, they said, “actually, nvm” because their currency got hyperinflated, and they had no other option.
More countries are experiencing hyperinflation now than at any other point in history at the same time. It’s happening all over the world, but not on our TVs or Netflix. Millions and millions of people have no currency right now.
