The PPI Again!

Mark Thornton

In this week’s episode, Mark takes another look at the Producer Price Index. As suggested in an episode from September 2023 (see Mises.org/MI_35), the PPI has indeed leveled off and is no longer “contributing” to the Federal Reserve’s “Immaculate Disinflation.” Mark points out that wholesale price increases are already in the long PPI “pipeline” and will likely make the Fed’s announced plans fall apart.
