Reparation bill


It occurred because Germany needed to pay off the reparation bill agreed under the Treaty of Versailles(May 1919). So the government came up with the idea of printing more money. All in all, they paid off the reparation bill successfully,but the value of the currency fell,the money became valueless which caused the hyperinflation.
