Not really. Prices are determined by four variables; quantity of goods and services, demand for goods and services, quantity of currency, demand for currency. When you get fiat currency, which historically is an aberration and not the norm, those controlling the currency get to radically change "quantity of currency" far more than market conditions would naturally allow.
As such the result is that inflation as we know it has a symptomatic definition of "rising prices" but a causal definition of "increase in money supply." Given that "increase in money supply" is historically not the norm but is the norm the last century, we have gotten to the point where we think of an unusual condition as normal.
