Inflation is a key economic indicator. There are many slight variations and transformations of this indicator. For instance, inflation computed by means of the GDP Deflator, or from the CPI. Please conduct a brief research to assess what is the best way, if any, to compare inflation levels between countries.

This assignment consists of three parts that can be answered by preparing a short power point.
Part 1 [3.5 marks]) Inflation is a key economic indicator. There are many slight variations and transformations of this indicator. For instance, inflation computed by means of the GDP Deflator, or from the CPI. Please conduct a brief research to assess what is the best way, if any, to compare inflation levels between countries.
Part 2 [3.5 marks]) Unemployment is a key economic indicator. There are many slight variations and transformations of this indicator. For instance, there are instances where it is reported based on the total labor force, and others with respect to the total adult population.

Part 3 [3.5 marks]) Exchange rate of a currency is a key economic indicator. There are slight variations and transformations of this indicator.
