This German Gold Mark recently found its way to me. Its history is relevant to today’s world financial mess. This note is from 1914 the last year of Germany’s gold standard. By 1923 government borrowing for war reparations had led to hyperinflation. A Mark in 1923 was worth one trillionth of the gold Mark of 1914.
Bad financial times, then they elected Hitler!
People make bad decisions when they’re desperate. Be sure to vote.
