It’s a Scorcher: Producer Price Inflation Rips Higher

John Carney 16 Feb 2024

A key gauge of inflation surged higher in January, confirming earlier data showing that the prices of goods and services in the U.S. rose at a faster clip as the new year began.

The producer price index for final demand, a broad measure of the prices paid for goods and services produced by U.S. business, rose 0.3 percent from a month earlier, the Department of Labor said Friday.

Wall Street had expected a smaller rise of just 0.1 percent. In December, the index fell by 0.1 percent after rising just 0.1 percent in November.

The surge in January pushed the index up at the fastest pace since August of 2023.

The biggest drivers of the increase were prices of services. The services index jumped 0.6 percent from the prior month, the biggest advance since July of 2023.

Core producer prices—a measure that excludes food, energy, and the trade services metric of retail and wholesale margins—rose 0.6 percent, the biggest jump since January of 2023.

I can understand Biden's staff telling everything is going well because dementia patients can get violent when stressed but they can't get away with that when it comes to the nation at large
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

No one needs a degree in economics to know that. All it takes is a trip to the to the grocery store or gas station.
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

Exactly!   888high58888
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
