THANK YOU!


Inflation

is an increase in the overall average
level of prices and not an increase in the price
of any specific product.


Stag·fla·tion

A term combining “Stagnation” and “Inflation” means weak growth (GDP) and inflation




Persistent high inflation combined with
high unemployment and stagnant
demand in a country's economy.

(Happens Simultaneously)
Deflation
Reduction of the general level of prices in an economy.
HISTORIC OVERVIEW

• 1960’s Fed flooded economy with money, dropped interest rates, and raised wage rates

• 1970’s Unprecedented Concurrence of high unemployment, high inflation, and low GDP

• Traditional economic cures failed

• Unforeseen supply shock

• Economic abyss with no predesigned cure

Economists have several different theories on what causes stagflation.
Generally, it is a mixture of all three that sends a country's economy spiraling into a stagflation.

Keynesian economists believe it is triggered by a serious shock to the supply of energy or food, such as a dramatic increase in oil prices.
It was then that President Ronald Reagan instituted his plan for dealing with stagflation –Reagananomics – which focused on increasing government spending while also cutting taxes.
.
That was the last time the United States was faced with stagflation.
Major Cause of the 1970s Oil Crisis:

Inappropriate Macroeconomic Policies
Unfavorable Supply Shock
Oil Prices Quadrupled by OPEC
Increased Government Spending (Vietnam War)
Stock market crash
As inflation rises, every dollar will buy a smaller percentage of a good. For example, if the inflation rate is 2%, then a $1 pack of gum will cost $1.02 in a year.

Central banks attempt to stop severe inflation, along with severe deflation, in an attempt to keep the excessive growth of prices to a minimum.
