The problems associated with chronically high inflation and hyper inflation continue to preoccupy policy makers and economists. In Great Inflations of the 20th Century, Pierre Siklos has gathered together major papers by a distinguished group of scholars who use historical episodes to understand and explain a key issue. Beginning with general surveys of historical experiences of hyperinflation and cases of chronic inflation, this volume continues with papers on the conditions which are conducive to generating high inflation. The link between monetary policy and inflation is examined through empirical studies of inflationary episodes in Germany, Hungary and Bolivia. The final part looks at how policy makers can seek to end high inflation with the smallest possible economic cost. Bringing together in one accessible volume a series of acclaimed contributions to the field, Great Inflations of the 20th Century will be a key reference resource for interested scholars and policy makers concerned with the myriad of issues surrounding the beginning and end of high or chronic inflation.

Smith, Journal of Economic History `This book is very interesting and individual chapters were well written and entertaining.' -- Mark Crosby, Economic Record `A persistent theme of the book is the use of historical episodes to understand and explain the issues: as a result, there are good stories here as well as good economic analysis. Those new to the literature on great inflations will find much to inform them and whet their appetite for more: those already familiar with many of the papers should still enjoy reading this collection.' -- J.
