Understanding Hyperinflation in the Weimer Republic


"The permanent economic crisis was a result of lost pre-war industrial exports, the loss of supplies in raw materials and foodstuffs from Alsace-Lorraine, Polish districts and the colonies, along with worsening debt balances and reparations payments. Military-industrial activity had almost ceased, although controlled demobilisation kept unemployment at around one million. The fact that the Allies continued to blockade Germany until after the Treaty of Versailles did not help matters, either.

Shorting (good) and "naked shorting" (bad) are different.

Shorting:  (example), A stock's current market price is $100.  I think it should sell for $80, so I won't buy it.  However, I'll sell it for $100, because I think the market will soon figure out it should be priced at $80 (and I'm willing to incur risk while I wait):

Charlemagne and Currency: The King Father of Europe

In 787 Charlemagne established a new system of currency, higher standard. England’s King Offa adopted this system. It was so sound that it was continued to be used until it was dropped by the United Kingdom in 1971.

Look up the laws of economic liberty

Liberty's Dictator, our triune God, tells us His law word needs to be established in every area of life. Economics is one of those areas.
