Your Econ-Fu is Strong

Here is a good article from NPR

This is a story about how an economist and his buddies tricked the people of Brazil into saving the country from rampant inflation. They had a crazy, unlikely plan, and it worked.

I can't really summarize the story, because it is already quite concise.  It is a good example of how desperation and a willingness to listen to experts can produce positive change.
