Life in 21st-century Britain has echoes of the hyper-inflation that brought down the Weimar Republic. On Monday, I set out to procure the euros I need for the summer. At Thomas Exchange in the Strand in central London, the rate on the board was €1.14 to a pound. I went to the bank next door, and drew out a wad of £20 notes. When I walked back to the bureau de change, clutching my holiday funds for the summer, a man was changing the last digit from "4" to "3". Crikey: in the time it took to procure some cash, sterling had lost nearly 1 per cent of its value. At that rate, I calculated, the pound in my pocket would be almost worthless by elevenses.
