    Therefore, price stability is assessed on the basis of price developments in the euro area economy. Reasons for aiming at below, but close to, 2% Inflation rates of below, but close to, 2% are low enough for the economy to fully reap the benefits of price stability. Inflation is the persistent increase in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy. Today, many central banks are striving to attain stability by keeping inflation under control. In other words, they are trying to achieve price stability.

    Business German inflation sinks to five-year low. The rate of increase in consumer prices in Germany has fallen to its lowest level in more than five years as the price of oil remains stubbornly low. Hyperinflation affected the German Papiermark, the currency of the Weimar Republic, between and , primarily in It caused considerable internal political instability in the country, the occupation of the Ruhr by France and Belgium as well as misery for the general populace.

    The book reminds us that achieving low inflation does not imply that the risks of high inflation have disappeared and presents policy lessons to achieve and maintain price stability. I am certain that this would be a valuable reference for scholars and policymakers.". Price stability implies avoiding both prolonged inflation and deflation. Inflation is a rise in the in the general price level of goods and services in an economy over a longer period of time resulting in a decline in the value of money and purchasing power. Deflation is a decrease in the general price level of goods and services over a longer period of time.
