Inflation – Hungary 1941 – House and Jelly Bean

Here is a very useful video on Inflation from The School of Life. It discusses the causes of inflation and why it is seen as big problem in countries. They use the example of Hungary in 1941 and explain how inflation erodes the purchasing power of the income of citizens – a good example of a house and a jelly bean. Mention of Keynesian and Monetarist schools of thought – useful for IGCSE courses and above
