ABSTRACT
The article presents an investigation on the study about the consumer's reaction to the issue on inflation and the expected price increase in the U.S. For some years, inflationary pressure is present in the economic system of the world. The consequence of the situation receives attention from the economists. One of the questions being raise is whether the continued small price advances can lead to behavior that accelerates inflation. The author includes in the presentation the introduction of the study, the inflationary stimuli and consumer perceptions regarding price trends, the evaluation of the attitude towards inflation, the effect of the price expectation on the rate of consumer spending and investment choices as well as the conclusion.
