Monetary Inflation
Monetary inflation
Monetary inflation
is a sustained increase in the money supply of a country (or currency area). Depending on many factors, especially public expectations, the fundamental state and development of the economy, and the transmission mechanism, it is likely to result in price inflation, which is usually just called "inflation", which is a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services.[1][2] There is general agreement among economists that there is a causal relationship between monetary inflation and price inflation. But there is neither a common view about the exact theoretical mechanisms and relationships, nor about how to accurately measure it. This relationship is also constantly changing, within a larger complex economic system

Deflation
In economics, deflation is a decrease in the general price level of goods and services.[1] Deflation
Deflation
occurs when the inflation rate falls below 0% (a negative inflation rate). Inflation

reduces the value of currency over time, but deflation increases it. This allows more goods and services to be bought than before with the same amount of currency. Deflation
Deflation
is distinct from disinflation, a slow-down in the inflation rate, i.e. when inflation declines to a lower rate but is still positive.[2] Economists generally believe that deflation is a problem in a modern economy because it increases the real value of debt, especially if the deflation is unexpected

Inflation
In economics, inflation is a sustained increase in the general price level of goods and services in an economy over a period of time.[1][2][3][4] When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services; consequently, inflation reflects a reduction in the purchasing power per unit of money – a loss of real value in the medium of exchange and unit of account within the economy.[5][6] The measure of inflation is the inflation rate, the annualized percentage change in a general price index, usually the consumer price index, over time.[7] The opposite of inflation is deflation, a sustained decrease in the general price level of goods and services.
