PREFACE
 
Inflation is a situation of sustained and inordinate increase in the prices of goods and services. Read on to understand the various types of inflation.One of the economic effects of inflation is the change in the marginal cost of producing money. This involves the appropriate 'price' of money which, in thiscase, is the nominal rate of interest. This 'price' indicates the return which has tobe pre-determined to hold back the printing presses, in place of some other assets which offer the market interest rate.In addition, if a country has a higher rate of inflation than other countries, itsbalance of trade is likely to move in an unfavorable direction. This is becausethere is a decline in its price competitiveness in the global market.
