IPTF publishes document for discussion on hyperinflationary economies

The International Practices Task Force (IPTF) of the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) SEC Regulations Committee has again updated its document for discussion identifying countries that are considered to have hyperinflationary economies. Ethiopia, Suriname and Yemen have been added to the list of countries with a three-year cumulative inflation rate exceeding 100%.

Readers will remember that the list already included Argentina, Iran, Lebanon, South Sudan, Sudan, Venezuela and Zimbabwe, with Turkey added in March 2022.

However, the IPTF notes that the list is based on available data and does not claim to be exhaustive (e.g. Syria, Ukraine and Afghanistan are omitted).
