Performance over the last 59 years compared with the USA

In only a few countries are negative inflation rates achieved. This means that the general price level is declining and consumer prices get cheaper. This is called deflation. In comparison to most other countries, the drastic price increases are no longer average. Usually this is a sign of political and economic turmoil.
