The Great Inflation and Its Aftermath: The Past and Future of American
The Great Inflation in the 1960s and 1970s,
notes award-winning columnist Robert J. Samuelson, played a crucial role in
transforming American politics, economy, and everyday life. The direct
consequences included stagnation in living standards, a growing belief—both in
America and abroad—that the great-power status of the United States was ending,
and Ronald Reagan’s election to the presidency in 1980. But that is only half
the story. The end of high inflation led to two decades of almost uninterrupted
economic growth, rising stock prices and ever-increasing home values.
Paradoxically, this prolonged prosperity triggered the economic and financial
collapse of 2008 and 2009 by making Americans—from bank executives to ordinary
homeowners—overconfident, complacent, and careless. The Great Inflation and its
Aftermath, Samuelson contends, demonstrated that we have not yet escaped the
boom-and-bust cycles common in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
This is a sobering tale essential for anyone who wants to understand today’s
CPI inflation projection based on market
interest rate expectations and ?275 billion asset purchases
The fan chart depicts the probability of
various outcomes for CPI inflation in the future. It has been conditioned on the
assumption that the stock of purchased assets financed by the issuance of
central bank reserves reaches ?275 billion and remains there throughout the
forecast period. If economic circumstances identical to today’s were to prevail
on 100 occasions, the MPC’s best collective judgement is that inflation in any
particular quarter would lie within the darkest central band on only 10 of those
occasions. The fan chart is constructed so that outturns of inflation are also
expected to lie within each pair of the lighter red areas on 10 occasions. In
any particular quarter of the forecast period, inflation is therefore expected
to lie somewhere within the fan on 90 out of 100 occasions. And on the remaining
10 out of 100 occasions inflation can fall anywhere outside the red area of the
fan chart. Over the forecast period, this has been depicted by the light grey
background. In any quarter of the forecast period, the probability mass in each
pair of identically coloured bands sums to 10%. The distribution of that 10%
between the bands below and above the central projection varies according to the
skew at each quarter, with the distribution given by the ratio of the width of
the bands below the central projection to the bands above it. In Chart 3, the
probabilities in the lower bands are the same as those in the upper bands at
Years 1, 2 and 3. See the box on pages 48–49 of the May 2002 Inflation Report
for a fuller description of the fan chart and what it represents. The dashed
line is drawn at the two-year point.
Soaring inflation which recently hit a 3-? year
high of 7.61 percent has become a major cause of concern for the people in
India, especially for the ones who are less privileged.. hope the govt. brings
out corrective measures to curb inflation soon enough (unfortunately 'soon'
is one word which is yet to be defined in our govt.'s dictionary!!) btw this
is an old man who makes a living by selling bhel on the streets , his
disheartened expression says it all.
