PRESENTED BY: GROUP 2 & 6

INFLATION
Inflation refers to a general rise in prices measured against a standard level of purchasing power.

Previously the term was used to refer to an increase in


the money supply, which is now referred to as expansionary monetary policy or monetary inflation. Inflation is measured by comparing two sets of goods at two points in time, and computing the increase in cost not reflected by an increase in quality.

INFLATION
CPI which measures consumer prices, and the GDP deflator, which measures inflation in the whole of the domestic economy.The

prevailing view in mainstream economics is that inflation is caused


by the interaction of the supply of money with output and interest rates. Concepts include: deflation, a general falling level of prices;

disinflation, the reduction of the rate of inflation; hyper-inflation,


an out-of-control inflationary spiral; stagflation, a combination of inflation and poor economic growth; and reflation, which is an attempt to raise prices to counteract deflationary pressures.
