  • when inflation rates get higher than wage growth, however, then it can cause severe economic complications. if money is worth less and people aren't earning more money to account for the difference, the normal supply and demand gets disrupted, and people can end up unable to afford basic living expenses. some of the most famous cases in history are the hyperinflation of the zimbabwean dollar (just before the currency was abandoned, 100 trillion zimbabwean dollars was worth approximately forty u.s. cents), and the hyperinflation of the reichsmark in post-wwi germany. in five years a loaf of bread in germany went from a quarter of a reichsmark to 80 billion reichsmarks. the currency was so valueless that it was worth more as kindling to heat people's homes than as money. infoplease.com
