Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Inflation is one way for competing claims over resources to express themselves. Destroying the ability of a large section of the population to make those claims will get rid of it. Of course, that also destroys domestic demand and creates a large export dependency. The high profit/rent and low inflation approach came at the cost of increasing imbalances that had to give at some point.
