    Hyperinflation is a period of extreme inflation. In some cases, prices can double in week or less. Confidence in the continued value of a currency is quickly lost in these times.

    Often, this occurs during times of economic instability when a government decides it can print enough money to solve financial problems without regards to the economic consequences.
