The Truth behind Inflation

  Greetings, friends! If I gave you 100 rupee note within the year 1958 and you kept it hidden under your bed for 60 years And if you took out that note today and used it within the market, then the worth of that note would have reduced to a mere 1 rupee 20 paise as compared to 1958 Let me explain it to you from another angle, if you probably did not understand If you purchase something worth 100 rupees today, it might have cost 1 Rupee 20 paise back in 1958 that's 100 rupees of today is adequate to 1 rupee 20 paise of 1958 .

This is due to inflation Inflation means dearness of things that creates things costlier for all folks per annum Why does inflation occur and what are the explanations behind this? Is it really a nasty thing? and the way is inflation associated with unemployment and other economic factors? we'll mention all of this in today's article where i will be able to explain this "ghastly" inflation to you Come, allow us to see First of all, a really important question- Why does inflation happen and who is causing it to happen? Are some officialdom increasing the costs of things arbitrarily?

It is not so There are several reasons for inflation but I'd wish to discuss 4 main reasons for inflation during this video the primary reason is extremely simple- An economic boom that's , an honest economic process When the economic process is sweet , then there's extra money within the hands of the people that can spend it on different items When there's extra money within the hands of the people, they will spend it on different items that's , the demand for everything would go up within the economy .

Since the demand is going down, so is the inflation As a response to this, some countries have decided to transfer cash to the people- distribute it for free Now, some people state that doing this would cause the inflation to increase What do you think will happen? I discussed the same logic in this video on Universal Basic Income that the biggest criticism of the Universal Basic Income and the free distribution of money is that it will cause the inflation to spike What do you think? Write down your explanations in the comments below And I will give the answer to this question later in the video I'd like to pose another interesting question before you Is inflation necessary?

What if there was 0% inflation? Observing superficially, you could think that this would be great as things would stop becoming costlier and that it is good for you as you will be able to afford it for cheap You would be able to save up more and overtime, the value of money would not depreciate either So this would be another great thing! Analyzing deeply upon the reasons that lead to inflation then you would understand that 0% inflation is actually not a good thing .

This would mean that companies would not raise your salaries Your salary would remain constant And since salaries never go down, therefore, in general, inflation always stays in the positive And there is a third reason as well If there is deflation, that is, the prices of things keep decreasing every year, then the people would not want to spend money.

They would want to save up First of all, the value of money is increasing, If deflation continues to happen, then five years on, the item that one wishes to buy would come for cheaper So they would want to buy it five years later instead of buying it now . This would cut down the overall public expenditure Lesser expenditure would mean that the businesses would start incurring losses The businesses incurring losses would translate to people losing their jobs which would then cause the unemployment to rise I've told you about a very long and convoluted connection- You might wonder if it actually happens so Yes it does There is a very interesting relation between unemployment and inflation This graph is called the "Phillips Curve" .

This shows us the inverse relation between unemployment and inflation If there's economic growth, there will be an increase in inflation and unemployment would go down and unemployment will rise if inflation goes down And this is a very interesting explanation because one would not expect this to happen, but it does in reality But as obvious, there are some extreme limits where this graph is not valid For example, in the case of hyperinflation It isn't that Venezuela today has 100% employment and 0% unemployment Some other factors come into play there. For instance, political factors which cause inflation to spike But generally, this graph is valid A question arises- Excessive inflation is bad because it would cause hyperinflation and increase dearness Nominal inflation is also bad because it would cause unemployment to rise So, what is the optimum level of inflation that a country should maintain? What could it be?

This figure is 2% for the developed countries The central banks and the governments of the developed nations have decided that they should maintain an inflation rate of about 2% If it is more, then they would try and reduce it And if it is less, they would try and increase it For India, this rate is 4% with a margin of  ±2% So the ideal inflation rate in India should be around 2-6% This keeps the prices stable and keeps the levels of unemployment at their lowest It ensures maximum employment So, if a government wants to control inflation, how can it do that? There can be several ways to do this Generally, the central bank of a country is responsible for controlling the inflation rate and normally, the central bank- RBI, in the case of India- controls the inflation rates by increasing/decreasing its interest rates If RBI increases it interest rates (which are called repo rates) which is charged on loans given to other banks .

Then fewer banks would want to take loans And these banks in turn, would increase their interest rates as well which would reduce the number of people wanting to take loans This would result in lesser money being circulated in the economy And if this happens so, then inflation would go down And if RBI slashes its interest rates, then indirectly, through other banks, more people would want to take loans and this would push the inflation up So inflation rate can mainly be controlled by increasing or decreasing the interest rates But there are other ways as well- Inflation can also be controlled by printing of more notes Printing of more notes would obviously cause inflation to rise .

IamLinkfeeder IamLinkfeeder IamLinkfeeder IamLinkfeeder IamLinkfeeder The government can control inflation by imposing more taxes as I had explained in the reasons earlier in this video The government can also control inflation by spending more or by spending less As seen in this video, you might've noticed that there is a direct relation between inflation and economic growth If the economic growth of a country increases, then so would inflation And if there is a recession in a country and there's no economic growth, then  inflation would also decline This happens on a general basis, but not always Sometimes, it also happens that a country's economic growth is going down and the country is going into recession but inflation is going up This situation is called "Stagflation" This is a disastrous thing indeed. Why does this happen?

The reason for this is- Assume that there is a recession within a country, but the cost push factors- the second reason for the rise of inflation that we talked about- The cost of the raw materials is rising For example, the rise of oil prices all across the world so the oil imported would then cost more so the inflation would rise because of cost push factors but there is recession within the country There is another exception from the other side- If there is deflation in a country, but simultaneously,  there is economic growth in the country This happened in the USA between 1870-1890 .

This period is referred to as "The Great Deflation" The cost of the goods were falling by around 2% every year and there was deflation, but there was also an economic boom Both the people and the businesses were making more money and employment was on the rise The reason behind this attributed to the rise in productivity This was a time when there was technological progress at such a rapid pace and new technologies were being developed that it compensated for the deflation Reverting to our original question- if people are given money for free in today's times during this recession then would it lead to a rise in inflation? In my opinion, the answer of this is no. Inflation would not rise because handing out money  wouldn't amount to such a huge increase in wealth that people become capable to buy things that are not being supplied It would not be so.

Because it would push up the demand very slightly And demand has fallen so low that giving out paltry sums of money would not alter the demand drastically So I do not think that the distribution of money for free would trigger any sort of inflation No matter how much importance inflation holds for the entire economy, but if we come down to personal consequences and how it personally affects you, then you could say that it has a negative consequence .The money that you save up would lose value over time the prices of the things keep going up and dearness would always be on the rise This is why people invest their money in different things rather than stashing it under their bed For example, they buy gold with it. Because the price of gold rises overtime .

The value of money keeps diminishing due to inflation but the value of gold keeps rising Similarly, some people buy real estate/ Property to avoid this And some people invest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin The best app in India to invest in cryptocurrency is Zebpay.

Zebpay is India's largest cryptocurrency exchange platform It is a very simple and easy to use app All you need to do is register with your mobile phone number and you'll easily be able to see in the wallet here how the prices of bitcoins fluctuate And there are several other crypto currencies here as well While talking about this, you might wonder about the ban imposed by India on cryptocurrencies .

This happened in September 2018 when RBI brought out a circular banning crypto currencies in India But on 4th March, 2020, the Supreme Court has overturned the decision of RBI by its judgement and the ban on cryptocurrencies on India has now been lifted So this can be done legally and openly by everybody again Both the iOS and the Android link of Zebpay can be found in the description below and here, I'd like to thank Zebpay for sponsoring this video.

There is one other thing that I would like to tell you about cryptocurrencies and inflation According to my personal observation and my personal opinion, You might have observed how the people who buy bitcoins today buy it and merely stash it- they do not spend it .

This is the reason why the value of cryptocurrencies keeps increasing over time because more people want to buy it and stash it- like they do with gold But people do the opposite with cash because they know that its value will depreciate, and so they spend it But they do not do this with Bitcoin This would mean that if the people do not spend the cryptocurrency, it cannot replace cash in that sense Its future as an asset is more as compared to its future as a currency .

This is my personal opinion here If you found this video to be informative and educational, share it and you can write down in the comments below about the financial education topics that you would like. Thank you

Where is a Starfish's Butt?

I read a tweet and it really got me thinking about animals revolting. It's from Lawrence Ward who says, "The population "of Scotland is around 5.25 million and there are million cats in the world so if every cat decided to invade Scotland, each Scot would have tonight off around 114 cats and I don't think they could pull it off." (laughs) I don't think I could fight 114 cats and survive. Have you ever had to tangle with an angry cat that still had its claws? I have. And lemme tell you, gonna need a lot of the foamy liquid that you put on your cuts. Hydrogen peroxide. If cats revolt, much like the population of small wild animals inane area where there's a large domestic cat population, we'd get destroyed. Your cats a murderer. (whimsical music) Hello, and welcome to"Footnotes", the companion show to "Because Science" where I take all of your comments, questions, and corrections and then I bombard you with cats.
