Involuntary Millionaires and Worthless Money
What happens to everyday life when money becomes worthless? You suddenly have more money than you could ever have dreamed of, but it’s still not enough. The exhibition takes us into hyperinflation. What survival strategies are needed in this kind of economic crisis, and what causes it?
From the 20th century to today
The exhibition features films co-created with the Swedish National Bank about how money is created, what inflation really is and how central banks work during economic crises.
The exhibition also presents examples of various solutions to hyperinflation, as well as a timeline depicting hyperinflation crises around the world and throughout Sweden’s economic history, from the 20th century to the present day.
