This paper discusses and analyzes the case of Egypt in recent time periods since the turn of the new millennium in combating inflation. The results show that sources of inflation include cost-push, demand-pull, power pricing, and imported inflation. The overall significance of the anti-inflation policy array seems to vary due to coordination failure among various policies. The analysis provides results to policymakers in Egypt as well as lessons on how economies can successfully adjust to inflationary pressures under reform.
