Five. In Malaya, the Philippines, and Indonesia, expense rises a ways outdistanced financial growth. Malaya appears the extreme example: by the end of the war, money supply had multiplied 25. 1 times, while prices were 11,000 times higher. However, the Philippines and Indonesia might well show similar money supply and price histories if data were available for the ultimate weeks of the conflict whilst the eastern issued rather nice amounts of foreign money. Earlier work on Southeast Asia almost universally refers to wartime hyperinflation. yet via both the Cagan (prices emerging 50 in line with cent a month) or Reinhart-Rogoff (40 in keeping with cent) criteria, hyperinflation was not typical until late in the war. Only the Philippines had a 40 per cent or more monthly price rise before 1945. Even there, inflation did not reach 40 per cent till August 1943. among November 1943 and January 1945, per month Philippine inflation exceeded 50 per cent on three occasions but then fell back to a lower level in the next month. Malaya never approached 40 per cent monthly inflation until the final days of the war in August 1945. Burma became hyperinflationary only in the last two months of the war as retreating Japanese troops desperately drew on their monetary stocks to obtain food and supplies. Inflation and money demand regardless of evidently excessive inflation, the call for for funds in Southeast Asia held up sufficiently good that hyperinflation was once mostly shunned. yet why did Southeast Asians continue to hold money to the extent they did when its value was being comprehensively debauched? whereas inflation judged by way of the public as ‘not too high’ or ‘acceptable’ is one part of persuading (or fooling) people into holding government-issued currency, it need not be the whole story. Comparative war finance One possible inducement, despite a history of high inflation, for people to hold the paper money of an occupying power is periodically to back it with some tangible asset. In Greece, Nazi Germany again and again did this by means of freeing a definite quantity of gold to shore up confidence in the drachma and so be able to continue to finance occupation through money construction. 3 programmes of gold revenues and 4 cosmic monetary stabilizations ‘sufficed periodically to restore enough short-run public confidence in the drachma to maintain the seigniorage maximisation policy. Without these interventions, the pace of inflation would have reached such heights as to have led to public refusal to accept newly printed currency notes in return for goods and services rendered’. 17 Similarly, in World War II Nationalist China, the Americans, at intervals, released gold for local sale to support the fapi as a viable currency. At the end of December 1944, Finance Minister H. H. Kung telegraphed United States Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau that ‘the fresh gold cargo is one of the amazing components contributing to the strengthening of fapi, simply because humans think that the arrival of gold has elevated the a lot wanted reserve of our currency’.
