    Imagine an economy with very high inflation; and that video gives a good idea of what things would be like.

    Price rises are not inflation.

    Price rises can be the RESULT of inflation - or can reflect something else, such as sudden demand, shortages from manufacturing problems, additional manufacturing costs or taxes on materials. Even seasonal demand - when I was 19-20, I rented, winters, a condo in a resort town. Paid $150 a month for it. LUXURIOUS, and furnished.

    Summers, it rented for $800 a WEEK. That was seasonal demand and supply - what the market would bear. I was renting below cost to the owner because it was better than having it stand empty. What he lost, winters, he made up in summer.

    Not inflation, of course.
