Inflating occurs when a government prints more money, growing the money supply, but in so doing devaluing individual units of the currency. Prices go up.
Inflation may be added to the real gross domestic product (real GDP) to obtain the nominal gross domestic product (nominal GDP). Put more simply, inflation pumps up real growth to the nominal number you’ll see reported in the media.
