Of course the ammount of money is not fixed, it keeps increasing, by the very nature of capitalism the money flows in the pockets of those who have the means to turn a profit a money pool if you will, this money is taken out of circulation. So new money has to be infused driving inflation up. The only alternative would be to replenish the money supply by taking money out of private hands and infusing it back into the system.
With means to conduct buisness at an ever faster pace, are shorter cycles with more frequents busts, OR never seen before inflation rates, as money needs to be infused at a greater pace unavoidable in a capitalist system?
