Lernziele

Das dritte Kapitel beschäftigt sich mit den Gründen, Kosten und Nutzen der Inflation. Nach dem Lesen dieses Kapitels wissen Sie,
  • dass die internationalen Zentralbanken in der Regel Preisniveaustabilität als oberstes Ziel verfolgen.

  • was man unter Preisniveaustabilität bzw. Inflation versteht und wie diese von den Zentralbanken definiert wird.

  • welche unterschiedlichen Ansätze es zur Messung der Inflation gibt und wodurch sich die Kerninflation von der Headline‐Inflation unterscheidet.

  • welche Vor‐ und Nachteile die Benennung eines konkreten Inflationsziels durch die Zentralbank mit sich bringt.

  • warum die Inflation langfristig ein monetäres Phänomen ist.

  • wieso die Stabilität der Umlaufgeschwindigkeit des Geldes wichtig ist, damit ein Zusammenhang zwischen Geldmengenwachstum und Inflation besteht.

  • worin die Unterschiede zwischen einer angebots‐ und nachfrageseitigen Inflation bestehen.

  • dass auch die Fiskalpolitik eine Rolle für die Inflation spielt.

  • was die Kosten der Inflation sind und weshalb man zwischen antizipierter und nicht antizipierter Inflation unterscheiden sollte.

  • was die Phillipskurve ist und welcher Nutzen sich aus dem Zusammenhang zwischen Arbeitslosigkeit und Inflation ergibt.
