Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the German inflation of 1923 and its effects of the financial and social structure of that country. A survey of the literature on inflation and on Germany during the 1913-1924- period was undertaken. Particular emphasis was given to the financial and social conditions at that time and their relationship to inflation. Both the financial and social structure of Germany were profoundly effected by the 1923 inflation. Fixed income obligations became virtually worthless, and equities and real estate lost a large portion of their value. Social conditions including health, education, nutrition, and the moral attitude of the citizens deteriorated significantly.
