Economics - Cost inflation
Cost inflation occurs when structural or institutional forces cause costs
and/or prices to rise. Any factors that increase the costs of production
can initiate cost inflation if businesses do not absorb the increased costs
through lower profit margins and, instead, 'pass on' the increased costs in
the form of higher prices.
