This book is an economic analysis of the Kipper und Wipper inflation of 1619-23, the most serious German inflation before the hyperinflation following World War I, with a particular focus on how it affected people's lives and behaviour. The volume features full-page reproductions of rare contemporary broadsheets - early forerunners of the modern newspaper - with striking illustrations and engaging texts. Published here in their entirety and for the first time in superb English translation, they are a unique window on to society at the time and give a voice to the people who were actually devastated by the inflation. Broadsheet Descriptions by John Roger Paas.
