Inflation is an increase in the price of goods and services, and a decrease in purchasing power.
TYPES OF INFLATION
Demand-pull effect: an increase in the supply of money and credit by monetary authorities, like the central bank. This leads to increased demand for good and services, and thus, increased prices.
Cost-push: when there is an increase in the supply of money, the cost of production increases, leading to high consumer prices.
Built in inflation: People expect prices to continue to rise in the future, and as such, expect their wages to rise to maintain their standard of living.
