USAGOLD note:  Difficult to avoid drawing parallels between Venezuela’s hyperinflationary nightmare and what occurred in Germany in the 1920s when people pushed wheelbarrows loaded with currency from store to store. One hyperinflation, though, is pretty much like any other – with the destruction of life savings the chief feature. Other, more stable currencies are a hedge, but nothing holds a candle to gold – the ultimate store of wealth under such conditions.
