Abstract: Does partisanship affect household inflation beliefs? This paper answers this question using new online survey data of South Korea, which was run between the presidential election in March 2022 and the presidential inauguration in May 2022, during which participants experienced a regime change. We find that (1) partisan bias affects both inflation expectations and perceived inflation in the past year but (2) self-reported financial literacy mitigates the bias.
