It is measured as the rate of change of those prices. Typically, prices rise over time, but prices can also fall (a situation called deflation). Besides the theoretical (Alchian/Klein, ) case for including asset prices in measures of inflation, there is also a practical case, that some asset prices, notably housing, are closely associated with the main trends in inflation, and via ‘bubbles and busts’ with output :// Values of “real assets” like real estate, equities,commodities, collectibles etc tend to keep up with inflation.

You should take particular care to identify if lease obligations are inflation linked, especially where those leases are :// As for this article, I wanted to single out and shine light on the housing component because (1) it is the largest component of inflation and (2) I believe the removal of home prices from the inflation calculation has caused serious home affordability problems in the US (by mismatching inflation-linked wages and home prices).

Akerloff and Shiller in their fine book Animal Spirits () and Shiller in his earlier book Irrational Exuberence () effectively say there is no systematic way to explain asset inflation. For example, the former book's chapter 11 opens as follows: 'No one has ever made rational sense of the wild gyrations in financial prices, such as   Deflation is when the general price levels in a country are falling—as opposed to inflation when prices rise.

Deflation can be caused by an increase in productivity, a decrease in overall demand The inflation rate is the percentage increase or decrease in prices during a specified period, usually a month or a year.

The percentage tells you how quickly prices rose during the period. For example, if the inflation rate for a gallon of gas is 2% per year, then gas prices will be 2% higher next year. That means a gallon of gas that costs $2 Inflation can occur in the prices of long-lived assets, not just the current production and sale of goods and services.

For example, booming housing prices and rising stock markets reflect a process of inflation in asset prices (as opposed to the prices of produced output).

It is Broad increase in prices. In a market economy, prices for goods and services can always change. Some prices rise; some prices fall.

• Investment and inflation mimic a key variance decomposition of market-book ratios. • Fit of the NKQ theory is a dramatic improvement relative to benchmark.

• Sticky prices can rationalize the time-series failure of the benchmark Q theory. •  however, when inflation is driven by global rather than do-mestic developments, such policies may not help.
