Excerpt: Understanding and interpreting the impact of inflation on military programs is difficult ... if not impossible. About the only thing most people will agree on is that it is a problem. In the June 1983 issue of Air Force Magazine, senior editor .JOhn T. Correll in an article entitled “The Costly Alternative to Controlling Cost” stated: “Inflation is a perpetual problem. It is bad enough by itself, but it feeds on cost growth like a loan shark-s interest rates. II Inflation, which may be defined as a rise in the general level of prices, impacts the majority of us personally, and many of us professionally. A more precise definition of inflation links a rise in the general level of prices with no rise in output (productivity). In foreign military sales (FMS) programs, inflation manifests itself in prices which move upward each year. Defense articles delivered last year cost more this year, and in most cases inflation is cited as the culprit.
