Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If inflation goes up, the value of the dollar goes down...which means you can't buy as much for each dollar. Which answer does that match?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's either A or C, but just because inflation goes up doesn't mean you can't buy as much, your real income may increase.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Inflation is: A) not regarded as an economic problem because every person's nominal income rises in proportion to the increase in the price level B) Regarded as an economic problem because every person's nominal income rises in proportion to the increase in the price level C) REgarded as an economic problem because it can have redistributive effects, lead to increased speculation, and cause greater uncertainty D) Regarded as an economic problem because where there is inflation, everyone is worse off.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Unless this is some trick question concerning relative exchange rates with foreign currencies, the answer must be (C). Given a certain number of dollars and holding everything else constant, purchasing power decreases during inflationary periods. Increasing one's income doesn't change the issue... every dollar in today's economy purchase relatively less in tomorrow's economy if inflation is occurring
