AbstractIs Inflation a Monetary Phenomenon Only? A Non Monetarist Episode of Inflation: The Italian Case (di Giancarlo Bertocco) - ABSTRACT:The publication of the second edition of Fratianni and Spinelli’s Monetary History of Italy offers the opportunity to analyze the causes behind the inflation pattern in Italy in the three decades preceding the entry of the country in the European Monetary Union. This paper has two objectives. The first consists in showing the limits of the explanation of Italian inflation based on the monetarist theory; the second consists in providing an alternative explanation whereby the pattern of Italian inflation basically depends on the trend of production costs and on the behavior of companies in connection with mark-up definition.
