Relation of Inflation and Interest

Phase I

Demand is very low in the economy, the unemployment rate is high. Government has two solutions,

Phase III

As there are limited resources and people have infinite demands. People in the economy started purchasing more than production levels. Everybody started fulfilling their needs using funds from loans. This leads to high inflation rate
