In The Guardian, Jochen Hung examines the continuing use of 1920s hyperinflation by British journalists for explaining contemporary German fiscal politics: ‘German aversion to the ECB printing money isn’t about the ‘national psyche’. To understand German fiscal policy, it is necessary to look beyond the cod psychology about a fear of 1920s hyperinflation.’
