  • Any worthwhile inflation indicators?  Seems like we’re in wicked inflation right now.  This is above the somewhat high inflation that has been swept under the rug for the past few decades.  My $80 grocery bill is seems suddenly like $120 and my $5-6 Toco Bell visits are suddenly $7-8.

  • If it’s all the same to you, I think I’ll just wait for the third revision before I decide if I believe these numbers.
    Mostly because – I don’t.
