inflation risk
The probability that one's assets or income stream will decline in value due to the reduced purchasing power of a nation's currency caused by a general increase in prices. For example, some fixed income investments can help mitigate inflation risk by incorporating an income stream tied to changes in an inflation measure like the CPI.
