Not for the reasons most people think. It may be tempting to say, "because everything is more expensive," but it is not that.Deflation can actually be just as damaging as inflation. The problem with inflation is one of redistribution: inflation makes some people worse off, but it makes others better off. This redistribution is due to three effects. PRICE EFFECT: As the average level of prices increase, some prices increase faster than others, so some people are more affected than others. INCOME EFFECT: Prices for goods and services mean income for someone else. So as some prices increase faster than others, some incomes increase faster than others. WEALTH EFFECT: Inflation redistributes income between borrowers and lenders. DIVERTING RESOURCES FROM PRODUCTION:When inflation gets to be very high, firms and consumers spend more time and resources trying to avoid inflation, and less time on productive activities. So inflation not only redistributes income, it also reduces the growth of real GDP, which has negative implications for employment and standard of living for everyone. The Comsumer Price Index (CPI) is the most commonly used index for measuring inflation. It is designed to measure changes in the prices of goods and services typically purchased by an urban consumer, so it is also known as a cost-of-living index. So the price of gasoline or milk is included in the CPI, but the price of a forklift is not.The mis-measurement of inflation by the CPI causes COLAs to be higher that actual inflation, which means larger raises for some workers, but higher costs to the federal government and thus taxpayers. A 1996 report suggested this overstatement of inflation to be between .8 and 1.6 percentage points annually. The Producer¶s Price Indexes (PPI) is similar to the CPI, except that they measure the prices of raw materials, intermediate goods, or final goods used by producers instead of consumers. Increases in the PPI often precede increases in the CPI, as producers pass price increases along to consumers. The GDP Deflater is the broadest price index, measuring the average price level of all goods and services included in the GDP. The deflator is simply the ratio of nominal GDP to real GDP. Or in other words, this index deflates nominal GDP to an inflation-adjusted output, real GDP.The costs of inflation go beyond redistribution, and have negative implications for the economy as a whole. If inflation is low, the effects may be small. But in periods of high inflation, known as Hyperinflation the negative effects will cripple an economy. What are the macro implications for inflation?

This means that some production will not be undertaken because firms are not certain about profitability.In this scenario. making it difficult to plan investment and consumption decisions. The rise in prices is natural in a developing country like India.Otherwise. wherein the economy demands more goods and services than what is produced. The CPI is used to calculate cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) under many union contracts. and to adjust federal tax brackets for inflation. Therefore. like a 30-year mortgage. or building a new housing development over 10 years. India is passing through a very hard time nowadays. production falls due to uncertainty.Demands pull inflation.Uncertainity:Future prices are unknown. These rising prices increase the cost of living. The government is unable to control the prices of necessary goods. High prices have very bad effect on the people. It is deplorable that a small group of businessmen earn a lot of money by unfair means of hoarding essential goods. High taxes on consumer products can also lead to inflation. for federal employees. for Social Security recipients. firms and consumers are less willing to commit to long-term plans. Shorter Time Horizons:Due to uncertainty over prices. it must expand and strengthen the public distribution system as a way of providing food security for the poorer sections. the government needs to come up with something more than quickfix solutions.
