Why Do People Dislike Inflation?

The purpose of this study is to try to understand, using public survey methods,
why people are so concerned and dismayed by inflation, the increase in
the price level, and decline in value of money. Studying public attitudes toward
inflation may help government policymakers better understand the reasons that
they should (or should not) be very concerned with controlling inflation, and
may help the policymakers better understand issues concerning exchange rate
policies. A study of public attitudes toward inflation may also help us learn
whether differences across countries in attitudes toward or understandings
of inflation might explain any differences across countries in inflationary outcomes.Why Do People Dislike Inflation?
