CPI Reaches All-Time High - BLS Releases April Inflation Data The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the inflation data for the year ending in April on May 17th, 2016. The Annual Inflation Rate was 1.13% up from 0.85% last month. The Consumer Price Index (CPI-U) reached an all-time high of 239.261.

The Devaluation Derby - The 1930’s had massive deflation on a world-wide scale. Making it the worst deflationary event in living memory. This has affected the thinking and even the language of everyone from economists, to politicians, to the media, as new words like devaluation, disinflation, low inflation, even negative inflation are created to avoid having to say what they really mean and that is the big “D”… DEFLATION. But no matter how you say it, the fact is, deflationary forces are bu...
No matter how you say it, the fact is, deflationary forces are building around the world. During the first quarter of 2015 the U.S. saw slight deflation on an annual basis. And despite historically low interest rates and high economic stimulus, in September 2015 the Financial Times posted the following telling comment: Japan has fallen back into deflation for the first time since April 2013 in a symbolic blow to prime minister Shinzo Abe’s ec...

Betting on Deflation May Be a Huge Mistake. Here’s Why… - Although this site is called Inflation Data for the last several years we have been talking a lot about the big “D”… deflation. Strictly speaking, the only true deflation (inflation rates below zero) occurred in 2009 and then very briefly in 2015. See Annual Inflation Rate Chart. But as the chart shows the overall trend since the peak in 1990 has been down with the occasional spike upward. Since the peak in September 2011 however, th...

Inflation, Economy, and the US Election - One of the major factors affecting an election’s outcome is the nation’s economy during the election year. In terms of trading and from an investment standpoint, financial security is a huge issue. But unlike recent election years, forecasters predict a strong economy in 2016 during the presidential race. Economic conditions can change however, depending on which candidate wins. With the US Presidential Election still a good six months away (Novembe...

Inflation Picks Up in December - The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) published their current inflation (CPI-U) report for the month of December on January 20th. The Consumer Price Index was 236.525 down from 237.336 in November. With the index going down you would think that we would have deflation but because when we say inflation or deflation we are talking about annual inflation/deflation we need to compare the index to the index from a year previous. Since the CPI-U for December 2...
