  InflationIn economics, inflation is a persistent increase in the general price level of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services. Wikipedia  Related topicsCentral banks such as the US Federal Reserve can affect inflation to a significant extent through setting interest rates and through other operations. WikipediaExplore: Central bank, Interest rate If GDP falls below its potential level (and unemployment is above the NAIRU), inflation will decelerate as suppliers attempt to fill excess capacity, cutting prices and undermining built-in inflation. WikipediaExplore: Gross domestic product, Unemployment Although the monetarist economic policies of Margaret Thatcher's Conservative government saw inflation reduced after 1979, unemployment soared in the early 1980s, exceeding 3,000,000 -- a level not seen for some 50 years -- by 1982.

Tim Bell's curator insight, March 18, 2015 7:54 AM

Nobel Prize-winning American economist Paul Krugman succinctly explains why many commentators consider deflation to be more harmful to an economy than mild inflation. This article was written a couple of years ago but is more relevant than ever today, with many developed economies teetering on the brink of a deflationary spiral (including our neighbours in the Eurozone).
