This paper evaluates the welfare gain from permanently reducing inflation from two percent to price stability and compares the output cost associated with this transition. The paper emphasizes the distortions caused by the interaction of inflation and capital income taxation in calculating the gain from moving to a zero rate of inflation. Though the annual deadweight loss of a two percent inflationrate is 0.225 percent of GDP - a relatively small number when compared to the literature, since the real gain from shifting to price stability grows inperpetuity at the rate of growth of GDP, the present value is a substantial multiple of the annual welfare gain. Calculations reveal a present value gain of 15 percent of GDP. Since the corresponding one-off output cost of moving from two percent inflation to price stability is 0.034 percent of GDP, the gain outweighs the cost by an overwhelming margin.
