Average Inflation rises in a fractional reserve system are tantamount to theft.
If you lent me 100 units of currency in year 1 and in year 5 I gave you 90 units back, you would not be happy at all. But when a government inflates at 2% a year, effectively that is what they do.

Inflation measures

Problem with inflation measurements is they are not accurate or unbiased.

  • Printing money is inflation. The rise in prices is the consequence.
  • Things might appear to get better but that is on a nominal basis.
  • Falling prices are good, they are part of the correction.
