sir in Ramesh Singh , hyperinflation is said to touch even four digits and they gave the German example post WW1 when the prices rose to 36billion times higher

the inflation which ranges from 1%to 4%is called creeping inflation. the inflation which ranges from 5 %to 10% is called trotting inflation. the inflation running in the range of double digit (20%,100%,200%etc.) is called galloping inflation (also called as hopping ,jumping,running inflation ).i.e,many latin american countries like chille ,argentina and brazil in 1970 and 80s had such rates of inflation in the range of 50 to 700%. same in the case of russian economy after the disintegration of ex-USSR . and then there is hyper inflation (very large and accelerating which might have the annual rates in million and billion or even trillion. in this type of inflation the increase takes place in a very short span of time ,price shoot up overnight . ex - german economy at the time of 1923 , prices were 36 billion times higher than two year earlier .

  3. Inflation can be divided in Types Inflation can be divided in types on the following basis: Cause Based Inflation Rate Based Inflation

  4. Rate Based Inflation Through this lesson we would understand the various types of inflation on the basis of cause: . Demand Pull Inflation Cost Push Inflation . Pricing Power Inflation Sectoral Inflation

  5. Sectoral Inflation It takes place when there is an increase in the price of the goods and services produced bv a certain sector of industries. Example: An increase in the cost of crude oil would directly affect all the sectors that use crude as an input. Thus, the increasing price of fuel has become an important issue related to the economy all over the world.

  6. Example Increment in Airfare In Aviation industry when the price of oil increases, the ticket fares also go up.

  7. Creeping Inflation . It occurs when the inflation rate is in the range of 1% to 5%. Such inflation erodes the purchasing power of money, but is referred to as manageable and sometimes inevitable in a growing economy

  8. Trotting Inflation . It lies in the range of 5% to 10%, which is higher than Creeping Inflation. If Creeping Inflation is not looked at the economists then it may lead to Trotting Inflation.

  9. Hvper Inflation It is the extremely rapid escalation of prices (can be more than 50% per month) for goods and services. The most famous hyperinflation of the modern era occurred in Germany in 1920-1923 when the government began printing money to make up for revenue lost. The German hyperinflation resulted in a percentage increase in prices in the millions per month

  10. Hvper Inflation Other cases of hyperinflation (Greece, Hungary) following World War II were even more extreme. The root cause of hyperinflation tends to be the excessive printing of currency by the monetary authority Hyperinflation is extremely disruptive by making savings worthless very quickly, thus encouraging workers to spend money as fast as it is earned.
