1975: Thoughts on Inflation: the Basic Forces

  • Gottfried Haberler


So much has been written and is currently being written on inflation that it is impossible to read everything and say anything that has not been said before. The best I can do under these circumstances is, I believe, not to comment on current events but to go back to basic principles which are often lost sight of in daily work, although they are frequently a better guide for things to come than minute description of current events and the extrapolation of recent trends.
