PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I created this lesson to go with my Les Miserable unit. However, this is a lesson you can use for World History or Economics (or any lesson that incorporates French history). This lesson introduced students to inflation and hyperinflation. It gives a little about why inflation occurred in 1780s and how this economic instability was one reason for French Revolution. It then discusses why hyperinflation occurred between the years 1795-1796 (printing too much money/assignats). The students have two compound interest problems to compute. One, however, can be omitted because they use the compound interest formula which may be a little more difficult for a particular age group. I had difficulty finding data about the cost of bread during this time period. I finally found where a loaf of bread cost 14.7 sous in 1789. I used this to calculate the 1795 problems. A key is included which explains how both problems are worked. Any questions let me know. France did enact a price ceiling on goods in 1793 (Law of the Maximum). I have a lesson on that as well.
