Abstract

Peter Levell of the IFS analyses changes in the way the Retail Prices Index (RPI) is calculated and discusses what they entail. Most benefit payments and tax rates have already switched to being linked to the CPI and so any change to the RPI would not affect them, but government bondholders may be adversely impacted.
