Evidently, they liked what the saw. The same thing has been happening here in the US but a much slower rate in order to fool the vast majority of the people.
As the massive inflation rate in 1920's Germany gave rise to one of the world'd worst demagogues in the 1930's, Adof Hitler, so has the gradual inflation rate in the US finally gotten us to the same point. This is not to lay blame soley on the current occupant of the White House, as he had help from many of his predecessors. In both political parties, I might add.
