Economics

Roger Arnold on inflation, stagflation, deflation and disinflation:

Inflation - "Rising interest rates and cost of goods coupled with increasing economic activity; Costs go up and people spend more."

Stagflation - "Rising interest rates and cost of goods coupled with decreasing economic activity. Costs go up but people spend less."

Deflation - "Falling interest rates and cost of goods coupled with decreasing economic activity; Costs go down but people spend less."

Dis-Inflation - "A slow down in the rate of inflation but still in positive territory."
