I am interested in inflation, specifically hyperinflation. Can anybody point me to research (papers, books) done on the individual origins and mechanisms at work at the very beginning of hyperinflation -i.e. what drove specific persons to raise the price of their specific goods or services, who went first, what were the informational channels on which individuals received their news of prices going up, etc.
Every hyperinflation-event would play out different, of course, but i'd like to read up on at least one (ideally recent (1900 onwards) one) on an individual level.
This might veer into the territory of historians, but possibly there is also some economics literature out there that covers this?
