Answer all five (5) questions on this paper in the spaces provided after each question.
Question 1.         (10 marks)
Discuss the costs associated with high inflation.         (10 marks)
Inflation is continual rise in price of goods and services over a period of time. The high inflation rate is known as hyper inflation. The cost associated with hyper inflation is 1.Loss of Purchasing Power, 2.Menu cost, and 3.Redistribution of wealth, 4.shoeleather cost, and 5.Misallocation of resources.
1. Loss of purchasing power: Inflation leads to decrease in value of an individual dollar with an increase in price over the period of time. Thus the individual who have same wage with rise in inflation rate will be able to purchase less. If wage increases at the same rate of increase in inflation, purchasing power can be maintained. But this won’t be applicable in all time. Therefore people lose their purchasing power with a high inflation rate.
2. Menu cost: When prices change over the period of time firms would likely to change their prices in order to keep in track with the increasing trend of price in the economy. This change in price of a product would involve cost changing the product label, printing new labels and so on. Firms have to decide whether to operate at a price level which is non profitable or at a new price which involves menu cost. Either way the firm will have to bear the cost of inflation.

owed a money from other person, high inflation result in lowering the value of debt in real terms. Therefore lending person will be affected while bu
owing person will be benefited from this high inflation.
4. Shoeleather cost: It refers to the cost of effort and time that people trying to spend in order to counteract the impact of high inflation rate such as holding less cash, having to make additional trips to the banks. The term shoeleather comes from the fact that more walking is required to go to the bank and get cash and spend it.
5. Misallocation of resources: The occu
ence of inflation leads to relative...
