Abstract: The apparent success of the Swiss in conquering high rates of inflation and maintaining an inflation rate of below two percent for over two years does not mean that the current policies of the Swiss Central Bank will continue this performance. Expectations of future low rates of inflation, which are based solely on the previous performance of prices in Switzerland, will miss the important change in Swiss monetary policy which occurred in 1975. Predictions of Swiss inflation based on monetary growth reveal a rising trend for Swiss prices over the next few years.
