    No, the Federal Reserve is to blame, which is the Central bank in America. They pulled the dollar off the gold standard and began inflating the dollar to "save" the economy.

    hard currency doesn't inflate because it's value it stable. fiat currency has wild swings in value because it is backed by nothing but a thin promise to pay, usually in further inflated fiat currency. currency debasement is a major factor in inflation.
