An increase in money supply increases inflation. When the money supply increases the wages go up and people have more money to spend. This increases the prices for goods. As a result, it generates inflation. In some instances, when a government irrationally increases the money supply as it has happened in Brazil and Argentina in the past, the inflation skyrockets and hyper inflation occurs.
