The dynamics of hyperinflation episodes is studied by applying a theoretical approach based on collective "adaptive inflation expectations" with a positive nonlinear feedback with a logarithmic singularity for the first time for analyzing Greece and Yugoslavia.

Finite-time singularity in the evolution of hyperinflation episodes

A model proposed by Sornette, Takayasu, and Zhou for describing hyperinflation regimes based on adaptive expectations expressed in terms of a power law which leads to a finite-time singularity is

Monetary policies follow a complex and chaotic process, one that is enhanced when monetary growth is taken to the extreme, as in hyperinflation. While we have a basic understanding of the complex

A Consistent Model of 'Explosive' Financial Bubbles with Mean-Reversing Residuals

We present a self-consistent model for explosive financial bubbles, which combines a mean-reverting volatility process and a stochastic conditional return which reflects nonlinear positive feedbacks

A simple mechanism for financial bubbles: time-varying momentum horizon

Building on the notion that bubbles are transient self-fulfilling prophecies created by positive feedback mechanisms, we construct the simplest continuous price process whose expected returns and

Is Inflation Always and Everywhere a Monetary Phenomenon?

Using a sample of about 160 countries over the last thirty years we test for the quantity theory relationship between money and inflation. When analysing the full sample of countries we find a strong

Scaling with respect to disorder in time-to-failure

Abstract:We revisit a simple dynamical model of rupture in random media with long-range elasticity to test whether rupture can be seen as a first-order or a critical transition. We find a clear

Critical ruptures

Abstract:The fracture of materials is a catastrophic phenomenon of considerable technological and scientific importance. Here, we analysed experiments designed for industrial applications in order to

Inflation and Growth: Stories Short and Tall

This paper reviews the stories that economists tell about the growth effects of inflation. Informal accounts are common, but there are few models that get to grips with the effects that are probably
