Inflation - Its Financial Impact On Business In Canada


  • Glenn Jenkins

    () (Queen's University, Kingston, On, Canada)


This study identifies the ways that inflation has had a financial impact on the Canadian business sector. It also contains an estimation of the magnitude of each of these effects of inflation by industrial sector for the years 1965-1974. These individual effects are then aggregated to determine the overall impact of inflation on the income and tax payments of industries. In addition, a separate analysis is carried out to assess the impact of inflation on the cash flow of these sectors.
