    Poster, color, 13.9 x 10.4 in., published by the United States Government Printing Office. During the first World War the United States experienced a very high rate of inflation, 62%.

Overall this effort was successful because between 1940 and 1945 the cost of living in America rose only 28%. World War II. 14 Political systems; 16 History. less
