This project examines the concerns of deflation in the UK. Deflation is defined as a sustained decline in an aggregate measure of prices such as the rate of the retail price index (RPI), Deflation is a generalised and persistent decline in most, if not all, prices of goods and services (Buiter, 2003). It is normally associated with falling aggregate demand leading to a negative output gap where actual GDP is less then potential GDP. With Asian economics already experiencing declining prices, the worry has been that deflationary pressures could deepen and even spread globally. The focus of this research is to distinguish if deflation is present in the UK manufacturing sector and whether there are signs of general deflation in the economy.
