    Re: Fiscal year - Financial year

    Hi,

    Thanks much for your ideas.

    I think there must be the relation between the inflation and our attitude towards government's policies, more specifically we may be lazy to hear them more

    It is commonly acceptable to say 'inflation began', but it's not good English among economists, nor it should be otherwise.
    If, on the other hand that certain time period is a part of greater period of observance, it is acceptable to say so. But, again, in context LeUyenHoc provided, it does not appear to be logical.

    Some other contexts may seem better for it:
    e.g. began to climb/rise, began to accelerate.

    It is true that in most instances there will be a rise in inflation rather than an actual beginning. And mostly a 'beginning of inflation' will be understood to mean that an acceleration of inflation has begun.
    But there are uncommon periods of deflation, and then when inflation starts again there will be a true beginning of inflation again.
