    An increase in indirect tax will reduce demand pull inflation because consumers will spend less as the good is more expensive (due to VAT) and so consumer expenditure (C) decreases which is a component of AD so AD decreases which causes the price level to drop from P1 to P2

    Its when prices are really low, lets say inflation rates were reduced, demand increases because consumers real income increases meaning they are able to buy more. This causes an outward **** of the AD, because consumption increases and consumption is a component of AD, as a result there is an increase of the price level. Demand Pull inflation

    The consumer burden of a tax is represented by the change in price from 6-9 and the new quantity of 50, so that is 3 × 50

    The producer burden is the change in price from 5 to 6 times the new quantity so 1 × 50
