leo6fin doesnt this also include increase in household demand?
cahiz84 Increase in household demand will cause demand push inflation.
weehongw but isn't that price level increase (due to higher cost) AND increase in AD cause the cost-push inflation?
Korny That's called demand-pull inflation
johntan1979 DEPRECIATION in domestic currency --> demand-pull inflation
Shaan23 Johntan..you are correct but remember AS is also affected by exchange rate. If it was a depreciation of home currency it would cause cost-pull as well and the SRAS would shift left.
shann680 can someone explain how appreciating/depreciating currencies affect demand pull and cost push inflation? i was under the impression that depreciating currencies made the inputs of raw materials more expensive. how does this translate into demand-pull inflation? would have thought an appreciating currency would increase demand-pull inflation?
