This paper discusses an economic model for hyperinflation considered by Marcet and Sargent. The model describes the relation between the current price level, the money supply, and the agents' forecasting of the future price. The agents' learning is described by an ARMA-model which is fitted to the available series of old prices. It is shown that the agents' learning rate depends upon the inertia of the market, and an implicit formula is given for this dependence. A generalization of the hyperinflation model is also discussed.
