Description - Culture and Inflation in Weimar Germany by Bernd Widdig

For many Germans the hyperinflation of 1914-1923 was one of the most decisive experiences of the 20th century. This study investigates the effects of that inflation on German culture during the Weimar Republic. It argues that inflation, with its dynamics of massification, devaluation, and the rapid circulation of money, is an integral part of modern culture and intensifies and condenses the experience of modernity in a traumatic way.
