Rapid inflation will harm all groups through reducing real values, creating uncertainty,

instability and harming the efficient operation of the market system. The level of

inflation will influence the severity of any effects. Those who benefit include the

government, borrowers, importers and some producers. Those who suffer include

fixed income earners, lenders, exporters and some producers.
