Abstract

Why does inflation accounting become a problem? This paper examines the issue of economic representation in an inflationary environment that is conventionally assumed to answer this question. By identifying the problems of conceptual underdetermination in operationalizing economic concepts of income in inflation accounting, the paper proposes that closer attention be paid to the calculative and institutionalized dynamics of inflation accounting. The paper concludes by proposing tentative suggestions for ways of conceptualizing the relationships between accounting and economics.
