Inflation and its impact in India
What is Inflation
Imagine we had Rs.7 in 2003. One could have purchased a 300 ml Pepsi and gone home happy (excluding the Rs. 2 that shopkeepers charge for refrigerating it).
Fast forward 12 years and on would have to shell out Rs.15 to purchase the same 300ml Pepsi bottle. What happened?

Sales, which included T-shirts and denim jeans, reached $78 million, 98 percent of which came from the domestic market. With 1,000 stores in Italy alone, Benetton realized that the home market was saturated, and launched a major export campaign.

Long Ago, as a means to running errands and go on carrying normal activities, people started getting involved in commerce. It started in Amman when the Circassions and Chenchens first settled in the valley and later immigrants form Bilad Al Sham. More and more merchant shops appeared, therefore forming the market.

The death of emperor Hirohito in 1989 is often considered as the end of Japan’s postwar era. Because the emperor is the symbol of the nation during wartime and the immediate postwar period. His death marked the fading of the elder generation. Moreover, other facts in the late 1980s and early 1990s could also be counted as the end of postwar.
