Inflation is a concept that always remains the key issue in every era of human kind. It is a situation where the prices of the commodities go high and high. It is very important for both the economists and the financial wizards for multiple reasons. Economists remain concerned about it for the reason that they need to consider the prices of all the commodities and the situation of market for all the masses and organizations. Financial managers also remain concerned about it for the reason as their utmost concern is to manage and balance their records of financial transactions. It is due to inflation that the prices of commodities vary from time to time and the quantity of money necessary to purchase a product one day may not be enough to buy the same quantity some other day. Therefore organizations need to frugally play their cards so that they may invest money and their investment and calculations may help them in the long run as well.
