We study some features of the processes that have generated hight inflation in Latin American countries. The statistical evidence shows that these inflationary experiences are fractional brownian noises. Several authors showed that self-organized criticality (SOC) processes may constitute the best explanation of the origin of such noises. But this hypothesis requieres that the underlying structure remains timeinvariant. We conjecture, instead, that the economic structures evolve in time being, at each stage of their evolution, self-organized structures. We find that such ESO (evolutionary self-organized) processes still generate fractional brownian noises. Thus, they seem to provide a better explanation for the economic phenomenon of high inflation.
