Inflation
Inflation table calculated?

  • Measuring inflation: the relative price level for products at some point in time

  • Inflation is reported in terms of annual rates of change of the price level

What usually happens to inflation during a recession?


Causes of inflation
Causes of Inflation table calculated?

1. Demand-pull: demand for goods exceeds supply (shortage) and prices are pulled up


Causes of inflation1
Causes of Inflation table calculated?

2. Government deficit spending: demand increases due to government spending, causes a shortage and prices rise

Deficit Spending:

Government spending money it does not have


Causes of inflation2
Causes of Inflation table calculated?

3. Rising labor costs: as laborers demand higher wages, businesses increase prices to offset costs


Causes of inflation3

4. Too much money in circulation: Federal Reserve increases money supply


The fisher equation
The Fisher Equation table calculated?

MV=PQ

M = Amount of Money in Circulation

V = Velocity of money (times each monetary unit is spent in a year)

P = Price Level (average of all goods/services)

Q = Physical Quantity of all goods/services in a year

PQ = Total amount spent in an economy in a year


How the fisher equation works
How the Fisher Equation Works table calculated?

MV=PQ

Year One: M=100

V=4

P=10

Q=40 (100)(4)=(10)(40)

Year Two: M=200

V=4 (stays constant)

P= ?

Q=40 (does not change in short run)

What happens to the price with an increase in the money supply?

(200)(4)=(?)(40)

P=20
