BRESSER-PEREIRA, Luiz Carlos. A descoberta da inflação inercial. Rev. econ. contemp. [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.1, pp.167-192. ISSN 1980-5527.

This paper contains my version of the history of inertial inflation. The first complete formulation of the theory is in a 1983 paper by myself and Yoshiaki Nakano; and the first paper that proposed a price shock combined with a conversion table is a 1984 paper also by the same authors. Rezende and Arida write in 1984 the first paper proposing an indexed money to neutralize inertia; Francisco Lopes, again in 1984, relates inertial-inflation with hyperinflation. The main references are clearly presented.

Keywords : inflation; inertia; indexation; stabilization plan.
