Inflation and price stability: FB12-7/17-2012E-PDF

"Inflation is a persistent rise over time in the average level of prices in the economy. Prices tend to go up when demand for goods and services exceeds the economy’s capacity to supply those goods and services. Conversely, an excess supply of goods and services tends to put downward pressure on prices"--p. [1].
