Reduce your exposure to the affected nation's currency. During a period of hyperinflation in Hungary in the mid-1940s, the highest-denomination note went from 1,000 Pengo to 10 million in one year. Despite the immense increase in face value, the currency actually lost a corresponding amount of its value during that timeframe. When a period of hyperinflation looms, savvy investors move their assets to a stable foreign currency before their own notes rapidly depreciate.
Invest in other hard assets. Owning other items with intrinsic value, chiefly commodities like oil and natural gas, can help you prepare for hyperinflation. Generally, as stock markets in hyperinflation-affected nations fall, commodity prices go higher. Real estate also offers a defense against hyperinflation. If you hold a fixed-rate mortgage, you'll pay the same amount each month, whether it's the first year of your mortgage or the 25th. During a period of hyperinflation, it's conceivable that you could pay off the entire balance of your mortgage at once because the currency is over-inflated, but your balance remains constant.
I don't think you'd ever see that in the US. They can print money so they're fine.
