Effects of unexpected Inflation
-Inflation redistributes Income
some people win- the ones getting higher prices (oil/gases companies)
some people lose-the ones paying the higher prices
Advantages and Disadvantages
Debtors win
-Borrowers pay back loans with inflated dollars (dollars that are worth less)
Creditors lose
-Lenders are paid back with inflated dollars (dollars that are worth less)
Kosovo Inflation Rate
The Republic of Kosovo also offers a stable macroeconomic environment by its adoption of the Euro as its official currency
The use of Euro in Kosovo has resulted in low inflation rate and in the elimination of exchange rate risks and monetary policy risks.
The inflation rate measures a broad rise or fall in prices that consumers pay for a standard basket of goods
Kosovo's tie to the euro has helped keep core inflation low. Kosovo maintained a budget surplus until 2011, when government expenditures climbed sharply

Kosovo Inflation Rate (cont')
Inflation in Kosovo did not disappear immediately following introduction of the Deutsche Mark, and subsequently Euro
In 2000-2001, Kosovo recorded double-digit inflation, fueled by massive foreign aid and private inflows
Later, inflation declared sharply and is now below the average Euro zone inflation
Other factors which are affecting inflation in Kosovo are:
-high unemployement
- low economic activity
Budget Deficit Of Kosovo (cont')
Kosovo's unilateral adoption of the Euro places a premium not only in fiscal discipline, but also on labor market flexibility, wage restraint, and structural reforms that enhance the economy's competitiveness
The adoption of Euro as a currency enabled a stable inflation rate
With no monetary policy, fiscal policy is the main tool to safeguard macroeconomic stability. A sound policy stance would be complemented with appropriate structural fiscal reforms, as well as steps to enhance the financial system's resilience
