Cost-push inflation

Cost-push inflation occurs when businesses respond to rising unit costs by increasing prices to protect their profit margins. Costpush inflation can come about from both domestic and external sources including a fall in the external value of the exchange rate which then leads to a rise in prices of imported products.
