With this @NRO column, I begin "Hanke's Inflation Dashboard", a monthly review of countries with the highest #Inflation. To qualify, a country's annual inflation must be >25%/yr on the last day of the month, as measured by my #PurchasingPowerParity model. https://t.co/x7gjWZqCvC

Swaths of #Nigeria are on the brink of #Famine. #Fulani herdsmen have gone on a murderous rampage against #Nigerian farmers, making matters worse. If that’s not enough, #Nigeria’s #Inflation compounds the risk of starvation. By my measure, #Inflation is 30.86%/yr. https://t.co/BiTLdYCP74

The #Fed announced plans to "increase its holdings of Treasury and agency mortgage-backed securities at least at the current pace". The Fed is keeping the pedal to the metal before the Nov. elections. Who said the Fed isn’t political? https://t.co/777Wdj1Yg4

#Argentina's central bank reports annual #Inflation at 40.70%/yr. Close, but no cigar. I remain the only reliable source for #Inflation measurements in #Argentina. I measure annual #Inflation at 36.46%/yr. https://t.co/FoKKPP8FJ5

#HongKong activist Tam Tak-chi has been denied bail after an arrest for shouting protest slogans. @CatoInstitute ranks #China 126 of 162 countries in Human #Freedom. #FreeSpeech in HK under the #Communist reign is going the way of the dodo bird. https://t.co/ewUfgRhrPk

#BREAKING: For the first time EVER, #Venezuela has imported condensate from #Iran as #Inflation ravages both nations. I measure #Venezuela's #Inflation at 1,626%/yr and #Iran’s at 135.69%/yr. Birds of a feather flock together. https://t.co/DwuvIgqVB3

Cities in #China are spending millions on "party-masses service centers". They provide free services, spread #XiJingping thoughts & recruit #CCP members. When it comes to propaganda, the #Communists leave no stone unturned. https://t.co/KsDy99ja5k

#COVID19 cases in #Israel are hitting record highs. @netanyahu is enforcing a #lockdown to fight #Covid — WRONG MOVE. #Sweden has crushed the #curve without sacrificing #economic #freedom; #Netanyahu should take notes. https://t.co/yCUQ5949ar

.@RTErdogan is casting himself as the voice of #Muslims around the world in an attempt to project #Turkey's soft power abroad. Before making any geopolitical power plays, RTE needs to fix Turkey's broken economy. Has he forgotten that the #Lira is tanking? https://t.co/iwee66EnyA

#BREAKING: The #Turkish #Lira is hitting new lows. @RTErdogan's nutty economic ideas have made toast of the #Lira. If RTE wants to save the lira and his skin, he must adopt a gold-backed #CurrencyBoard. https://t.co/YyO8p3XSJS

While the #US slept, #China has obtained a near monopoly on rare earth metals, which are critical in high-tech manufacturing. #Beijing now controls 80% of the global market. It’s time for the US to wake up. https://t.co/EPfLdVMG0g

In #Africa, ~90% of rural land is not formally documented, making it impossible to enforce property rights. No #PropertyRights, no production. Big African problem! https://t.co/7WkNbJswUo

#Argentina's sledgehammer #lockdowns have caused its economy to be hit "twice as hard" as its neighbors in #Brazil. Arg’s #lockdowns have not controlled #Inflation. It’s roaring away at 36.78%/yr by my rate. Arg continues to hit the self-destruct button. https://t.co/bADwBNBFuu

#Turks love #Gold, frequently using it to hedge against the systematic currency crises that plague #Turkey. As the #Lira hits a new all-time low of 7.49 TRY/USD, the clear solution to #Turkey's historically high #Inflation is a gold-backed #CurrencyBoard. https://t.co/XQwU55eR0h

#Inflation in #Iran is SURGING! By utilizing high-frequency data and applying #PPP, I accurately measure #Iran’s #Inflation to be 135.7%/yr! It was "only" 21.9%/yr at the start of this year. With a junk currency and SKY-HIGH #Inflation, #Iran is in a classic death spiral. https://t.co/PGwwz7am3I
