Inflation-Adjusted Real Sales Declined by 0.04% (-0.04%) for the Month
– Headline Annual Inflation Surge Has Been Due to Energy-Price Distortions, Not to an Overheating Economy
– February 2017 Monthly CPI Inflation Rose by 0.12%, Pushing Annual CPI-U Inflation to a 60-Month High of 2.74%, with CPI-W at 2.82% and ShadowStats at 10.5%
– February Final-Demand PPI Annual Inflation Hit a 59-Month High of 2.19%
