A Little History of Peru…

Peru has a very longstanding history but to take a look at Peru in the years of 1980s, it is quite important to look at the economic struggles that occurred during this decade. Hyperinflation caused the Peruvian currency, the sol, to be replaced by this currency, the intis; however, it was later replaced by the new sol again in the summer of 1991. Hyperinflation and economic struggles have been mainly the reasons why many currencies have become depleted and replaced by the new currency. Peru’s history may be a little difficult to find on the internet, but if you’re interested in learning about the History of Peru, Wikipedia provides quite a lot of information on the inflation period as well as the history of the country. Peru is a country I seldom study in history textbooks, but to get a little understanding of the economic struggles of this country in the 1980s-1990s, it definitely sets a picture of what Peru went through during this time period.
