Reflation is a situation often deliberately brought by the government to reduce unemployment and increase demand by going for higher levels of economic growth.33 Governments go for higher public expenditures, tax cuts, interest rate cuts, etc. Fiscal deficit rises, extra money is generally printed at the higher level of growth, wages increase and there is almost no improvement in unemployment.
Reflation can also be understood from a different angle—when the economy is crossing a cycle of recession (low inflation, high unemployment, low demand, etc.) and government takes some economic policy decisions to revive the economy from recession, certain goods see a sudden and temporary increase in their prices, such price rise is also known as reflation.
