In economics, *inflation* is a rise in the general level of prices of goods
and services in an economy over a period of time.^[1] 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.^[2]^[3] A chief measure of price
inflation is the inflation rate, the annualized percentage change in a
general price index (normally the consumer price index) over time.^[4]

Inflation's effects on an economy are various and can be simultaneously
positive and negative. Negative effects
