What is inflation?


Trending topic alert! Inflation is one of the trending topics these days... Let's look at what it really means.


Inflation is the decline of purchasing power of a given currency over time. A quantitative estimate of the rate at which the decline in purchasing power occurs can be reflected in the increase of an average price level of a basket of selected goods and services in an economy over some period of time.


The rise in the general level of prices often expressed as a percentage, means that a unit of currency effectively buys less than it did in prior periods.


Inflation can be contrasted with deflation, which occurs when the purchasing power of money increases and prices decline.
