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.
