Demand Pull Inflation

  • Demand Pull Inflation occurs when Aggregate demand (C+I+G+(X-M)) increases at a rate faster than the capacity of the economy to produce goods and services ie: AD>AS. This increase competition for goods and services drives up their prices.

  • An increase in demand shifts the aggregate demand curve to the right, from AD1 to AD2 pushing up the price level from P1 to P2.

  • Any increase in Aggregate Demand (C + I + G + ( X – M ) ) as the economy approaches full employment.

  • Full employment causes labour shortages, employers thus bid up wages to attract labour. The increased income, transpires into increased consumption causing Aggregate Demand to rise.

  • High levels of foreign investment increases employment, income, consumptions and ultimately Aggregate Demand.

  • Growth in foreign economies can lead to higher incomes for our exporters, thus allowing increases in Aggregate Demand.

  • Inflationary expectations – If members of an economy expect prices to rise, it brings forward expenditure decisions leading to demand pull inflation eg: Pre GST in Australia.

  • Increasing consumption due to changes in consumption patterns (less savings at any level of income).

  • Monetary consideration – too much credit in the economy. A relaxed monetary policy leads to a reduction in interest rates leading to an increase in Aggregate Demand and thus prices.

  • Cost Push Inflation occurs when prices are pushed up by rising costs to producers who compete with each other for increasingly scarce resources. The increased costs are passed onto consumers.

  • An increase in the prices of inputs shifts the aggregate Supply Curve to the left, from AS1 to AS2 pushing up the price level from P1 to P2.

  • Any input may become a major cost to business eg: wage increases lead to higher production costs.

  • Labour shortages in some sectors necessitate wage increases in that sector, however it has a domino effect leading to wage rises in other sectors.

  • NB: Wage rises in excess of productivity increase leads to inflationary pressure.

  • The extend to which a producer can pass on price rises depends on the level of competition in the industry.

  • The more competitive the industry, the more the producer has to absorb costs rather than pass them onto consumers.

  • Inflation imported from abroad, eg: the rise in the cost of intermediate goods and resources imported from other countries flows through in the form of higher prices domestically eg: oil prices.

  • Government budgetary problems – an increase in the cost of public utilities eg: electricity, water etc, leads to higher costs to business and households.
