Low and Stable Inflation
MAS aims to maintain a low and stable rate of inflation that provides a conducive environment for sustainable economic growth. This improves the well-being of Singaporeans through several channels. When inflation is low and stable, businesses are better able to plan and decide on investment and job creation. Low inflation also protects the purchasing power of the Singapore dollar.
This section features two interactive kiosks:
- CPI Game: The rate of inflation you face depends on your consumption basket. Choose your household's monthly spending on different items and find out how your household's inflation rate compares with the average.
- Time Traveller: Inflation measures the change in the price of a good or service over time. Take a trip back in time to see how prices, and often, the quality of some commonly consumed goods and services have changed over the years.
