Inflation is an increase in the prices of goods and services in the market. Due to inflation, a soda can that used to cost 50 cents 20 years ago, costs 2 dollar today. Inflation weakens a currency’s performance. The central bank is responsible for controlling inflation through the manipulation of interest rates and the money supply.
