  • Commodities such as oil,cigarettes and petrol rise due to inflation, may lead to peoples consumption decreasing which means less money coming into the country. Standard of living decreases.Inflation is a bad thing because it decreases competitiveness within different countries. This means that exports cost more abroad and it causes a decrease in the demand for exports. Currency devaluation may improve exports although the cost to produce these product may increase which still leaves us with inflation.
  • Gives the government more income .Big companies such as (Tesco’s) have the money to compete with the inflation rates where as small companies such as (family owned businesses) wouldn’t have the option to sell their produce for cheaper. This would lead to a monopoly of the market. Tourists from wealthier countries who would not be deterred from coming to Ireland will spend more money than previous years. Commodities (such as petrol, alcohol and cigarettes) are ,mainly targeted by inflation, this could lower the amount of people’s consumption. This would be good for the environment and personal health.

    4. 4. Monetary Policy What Does Monetary Policy Mean? The actions of a central bank, currency board or other regulatory committee that determine the size and rate of growth of the money supply, which in turn affects interest rates. Monetary policy is maintained through actions such as increasing the interest rate, or changing the amount of money banks need to keep in the vault (bank reserves).Reference:http://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/monetarypolicy.asp#axzz1dtHuxPRD
    5. 5. Lender of Last ResortA Central Banks Function as “Lender of Last Resort” means that a country’s Central Bank offers loans to small commercial banks and other financial institutions, that are experiencing difficulty or near collapse. Reference: http://www.centralbanksguide.com/lender+of+last+res ort/
    6. 6. Inflation by inflation we mean a general rise in prices throughout the economy. Government policy here is to keep inflation both low and stable.(J.Sloman,2001, 2nd edition, PearsonEducation Limited. Essentials ofEconomics, pp.244-245)

If inflation develops into ‘hyperinflation’ with prices rising perhaps by several hundred per cent or even thousands per cent per year, the whole basis of the economy will be undermined.(J. Sloman, 2001, 2nd edition, Pearson EducationLimited. Essentials of Economics, pp.277)
