Hyperinflation did not directly bring about the Nazi takeover of Germany, the inflation ended with the introduction of the Rentenmark and the Weimar Republic continued for a decade afterwards.
The inflation did, however, raise doubts about the competence of liberal institutions, especially amongst a middle class who had held cash savings and bonds.
It also produced resentment of Germany's bankers and speculators, many of them Jewish, whom the government and press blamed for the inflation.
