Joshua Blustein on Hyperinflation in the Łódź Ghetto

Joshua Blustein, a law student at the University of Chicago, joins the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss his article Hyperinflation in the Łódź Ghetto, which he co-authored with Jonah Bennett, Natalia Stefanska, Przemysław Galach, and Steven Hanke. In this article, Blustein and his co-authors offer an economic history of the Łódź Ghetto—the last ghetto to be liquidated by the Nazis during the Holocaust—with a focus on its internal currency and the causes and effects of the currency’s hyperinflation.
