    Abstract

    Az Egyesült Államokban folyó kutatások arra a következtetésre jutottak, hogy az 1990 es évek eleje és közepe közötti időszakot vizsgálva az átlagosan évi 3 százalékos mért inflációs ráta mintegy évi 1,1 százalékponttal felülbecsüli a megélhetési költsé gek változását. Hatására nem csupán az Egyesült Államokban, hanem szerte a világ ban, sok országban foglalkoznak a fogyasztói árindex feltételezett torzításával, en nek következményeivel, valamint a gazdasági döntéshozatalt érintő következmények kel. A tanulmány célja, hogy a nemzetközi irodalom alapján részletesen elemezze a fogyasztóiárindex-számítás körül elvileg fellépő torzító tényezőket és a torzítás le hetséges következményeit.* Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) kód: B21, C13, C43, E3.
