The unwind depends upon what the central bank did. If the central bank did a repurchase agreement (“repo”) or lent against assets for a fixed time, the agreement automatically unwinds at the term of the deal (which is short). They would need to enter into new deals to keep their balance sheet size unchanged. If they bought the asset outright, it will either ...

I actually found a model that proposes an estimator of CPI increase from a QE "unit" (relative to GDP), but this is based on ECB's intervention (which came pretty late compared to others). This is a New Keynesian DGSE with QE as an estimated AR(2) process. The "initial shock" is a 1% increase in ECB's bond-long term bond holdings, relative to quarterly GDP. ...

There are some academic papers dealing with this question (but beyond the specific case of Pakistan) Note first that inflation is inversely correlated with real exchange rates (as long as nominal exchange rates do not adjust instantaneously to prices). The following numerical example from Gylafson (1999) illustrates the point. Suppose the real exchange ...

Conceptually asking when/how much new money will cause inflation has a very nuanced answer. For example, how come the Fed's QE Program from 2008-2013 hasn't lead to inflation? One reason why QE might not lead to consumer goods inflation can be found in the famous equation: MV=PQ. In other words, the money supply (M) can go up due to QE. BUT, if Velocity (V)...

The Fed uses quantitative easing to provide ample liquidity and to prevent deflation. Inflation has not been a problem in modern economies for over 12 years. Deflation is much worse than inflation. Technological advances, especially fin tech, cause deflationary pressure. I’ll say it again. Deflation is the problem, not inflation. Even the price of ...

The Fed is combating liquidity. The risk in the U.S. and most of the developed world is deflation. We are already seeing massive deflation as evidenced by plummeting demand for oil. Deflation has been the risk for the past 12 years. It’s time to stop listening to your dad/uncle who lived through the devastating effects of inflation in 1970s.

I also agree that method 3 is the best option. Just as the previous posted stated. You must chose the base year then use that value to adjust the time series, assuming this time series is annual. For 2008 the value would be 100 then 2009 would be 1.03 and 2010 would be 1.04. $100 * (1.03) * (1.04) = 107.12

Not by itself. The inflation generally depends on the following monetary relation: $$ MV =PY$$ Where M is money supply, V velocity of money (how much one buck is used in economy), P is the price level (change in which is inflation), and Y is a real output. Now solving for P so we can focus on inflation gives us: $$P=\frac{MV}{Y}$$ Hence price level (and ...

No chance. The economy is heading for a deep recession, because of an exogenous fall in demand (think of a supply and demand graph, where demand falls drastically, and so Q and P falls). Recessions most of the time mean less inflation (firms sell less). Exceptions are called stagflation and are fairly uncommon, except in totally destroyed economies where ...
