I think it's something like 100% over a 3 year period so you are pretty close.Someone needs to define hyper inflation for me. We went through the seventies and eighties when inflation was spiraling up at a pretty good clip here, 20% annually or so IIRC. It was worse elsewhere in the world. All the chicken littles were carrying on then, too, but somehow the nation and the world survived and so did the populace. We had a low income back then and came through just fine, even bought a house with a 12% low-interest loan. So for me, stockpiling against inflation amounts to panic buying.
