The period since the Second World War has seen many instances — particularly in Latin America — of repeatedly unsuccessful attempts by governments to eliminate three-digit inflation, not to speak of hyperinflation. A frequent pattern has been that the governments in question adopted policies which at first achieved near-stabilization of the price level, but which then led to such political pressures that after a short time the governments resumed their expansionary inflationary policies. These failures, in turn, generated a lack of credibility of the government in the eyes of the public that further militated against the success of subsequent attempts to achieve stabilization (see Bruno et al., 1988; Bruno and Meridor, 1991).
