  118. 118. Put Funda • King Musa l of the Malian empire was possibly the richest person in all of history. • He was a devout Muslim and in 1324, he saw it as his duty to perform Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca. • Musa’s pilgrimage caravan included 60,000 companions, 12,000 slaves carrying 4 pounds of gold each, and 80 camels laden with 50 to 300 pounds of gold each. Five hundred of Musa’s servants also rode before him each carrying a 10.5 pound gold staff. Though Musa had more gold than he could have possibly spent on his journey, that didn’t stop him from making an effort. • He gave beggars huge ingots, overpaid at bazaars and tipped with fistfuls of gold dust. Musa also reportedly ordered a new mosque built for him to pray at every Friday. In addition, he made formal charitable donations of 20,000 ounces of gold – 1,250 pounds – each at Cairo, Mecca, and Medina. • However, he (perhaps unintentionally) caused great disaster in all three cities. How? Q23

Hyperinflation • The instantaneous and incalculable influx of gold into Cairo, Mecca, and Medina caused hyperinflation the likes of which had never been seen before or since and nearly impoverished all three great cities for over ten years. Assuming roughly equal distribution of the total gold load across all those aforementioned camels, Musa made at least 71,000 pounds of gold basically worthless by just plumb giving it away into climates that considered it scarce and valuable.
