bahut achha h sir keep it like as it's going
Sir ,can i say that cost push inflation and pricing power inflation both are same?.Because in both the cases producers are increasing their prices.
Sir in the example given of the onions , could only the demand of the onions can be called demand pull inflation because in the previous lect. it is said that only one good increase is not to be considered as inflation.

i think this is because onion price is continously increasing over a longer period of time due in adverse monsoon throughout the demand pull inflation.
