Aman work at the Bank, to help customers, including retired people, to plan for the future.  Often the value of pensions does not keep up with inflation.  Hence retired people require a forecast of inflation.  One of the assertions is that changes in Federal Reserve policy can affect inflation.  

    Aman are given data on money and inflation. Money = average annual growth over 5 year periods, and inflation is average annual rate of inflation over 5 year periods.

Period End    Money       Inflation
 1965             9            1.6
1970            7.9            4.2
1975            11.5            8
1980            12            10.5
1985            11             7
1990            7              4.9
1995            2.8           3.8
2000            7.1            3
2005            10.1          2.7
