Underlying Inflation

Underlying Inflation

Inflation caused by a reduction in the value of money rather than price changes in volatile products. For example, rising gasoline prices may reduce the spending power of one's income, but this may be due to factors external to money such as excessive speculation. Underlying inflation measures changes to the supply and demand for money itself. See also: Core Inflation.
