In the economy, inflation means an increase in the general price of goods and services in an economy from time to time. G. Ackley defined inflation as ?a persistent and appreciable rise in the general level or aver­age of prices'. With the increase in general price levels, each unit of currency can only buy goods and services in lesser quantities than ever before. Therefore, inflation also reflects the decline in purchasing power, which is a loss of real value in internal exchange medium of an economy. High inflation may lead to a shortage of goods when consumers begin hide items because worries about prices will rise in the future.

[...] So, spending drops, prices drop and inflation slows. Diagram 5 Source: Malaysian government conducts the nation's monetary policy by changing interest rates and adjusting the quantity of money. Malaysia's central bank, Bank Negara Malaysia uses interest rate targeting for the time being. By using monetary policy, BNM can increase or decrease the money supply as well as the interest rate.

The inflation rate has risen from 0.4 per cent in 1985, when Malaysia multiplies the economies of the economy to 4.7 per cent in 1992. However, the inflation rate dropped to 3.5 per cent in 1995 and 3.6 per cent for the first nine months of 1996. So far the rate of inflation in Malaysia is still low and is lowest compared to other developing countries. [...]

[...] For instances, expansionary fiscal policy will be use during recessions, which is tax cuts and increased government spending in order to increase demand and economic growth while contractionary policy will be use during booms, which is increased taxation and lower government spending to reduce demand and reduce inflation. Here are some examples of how the Malaysian government has set fiscal policy. In a recession, the government may decide to increase borrowing and spend more on infrastructure spending. The idea is that this increase in government spending creates an injection of money into the economy and helps to create jobs. There may also be a multiplier effect, where the initial injection into the economy causes a further round of higher spending. [...]
