Hyperinflation[edit]

No edit warring please, on hyperinflation! :-) Everybody knowledgeable about hyperinflation and the US Dollar knows that the US Dollar is the normal, relatively stable currency used during hyperinflation.Homni (talk) 18:26, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm certainly not looking for a war! :-) Obviously, I'm new here so I don't know, yet, how all of this works. And I'm assuming that you will see my edit of this page.

My removal of the comment about the US Dollar was simply to keep people from assuming that the US Dollar is any less of a fiat currency than any other fiat currency and is, therefore, any less susceptible to hyperinflation. Rapier Half-Witt (talk) 01:00, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry about the reference to "edit warring." I picked this up here on WP. There is a very annoying habit here that as soon as you put back a deleted edit, you are almost immediately accused of "edit warring". I find it very annoying. Sorry I did it to you. I learnt it here on WP.
About the US Dollar also being a fiat currency and also susceptible to hyperinflation: I changed the article to read: "The population normally switch to holding a relatively stable foreign fiat currency such as the US Dollar." The first sentence in the article already states that hyperinflation applies to fiat currencies. Homni (talk) 09:14, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
No worries! Great edit, too. Rapier Half-Witt (talk) 17:39, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
