Inflation: Issues and Concerns

K R Gupta (Author)
Inflation can be defined as disproportionate and relatively sharp or sudden increase in the quantity of money or credit or both as well as incomes and purchasing power relative to goods available for purchase. It always brings a rise in the price levels. There is erosion in the value of the internal medium of exchange and unit of account in the economy as money income is expanding relative to the output of work done by the productive agents and too much money chases too few goods.

The chief measure of inflation is the inflation rate i.e. the annualized percentage change in the general price index normally the consumer price index over a period of time. In order to measure overall inflation the price changes of a large basket or collection of representative goods and services is measured. The weighted average prices are combined for calculating the overall price. To better relate the price changes over a period of time indexes choose a base year price and assign it a value of 100. Index prices in subsequent periods are expressed in relation to the base year price.

Inflation : Issues and Concerns has a vast coverage as it elaborates on all the important aspects relating to inflation. While the types of inflation like demand pull and cost push inflation have been illustrated various states of inflation such as hyperinflation deflation disinflation and stagflation have been explained.
