Inflationary processes have started to appear in 2021. Policies implemented to combat the Covid-19 pandemics have increased circulating money, that is putting pressure on the price of commodities and manufactures. Latin America has a long history of inflationary processes and currently has two countries with high inflation: Venezuela and Argentina. The analysis of these cases is useful to understand what may come in other parts of the world.  The course aims at unveiling the practices that lead to inflation, as well as the decisions made by consumers, governments and firms in order to understand the concept of inflation economics and be able to make proper decisions if inflation continues to increase.
