“Complicates” here is a weasel word. Those who have been paying attention understand there’s nothing complicated about prices rising because of excess dollars flowing through the system: January’s Surprising PPI Hike Complicates Inflation Outlook.

Stripping out food and energy costs, the core PPI surged 0.5%, defying the anticipated 0.1% gain. Moreover, the PPI excluding food, energy, and trade services climbed 0.6%, marking the largest one-month rise since January 2023.

So be sure to buy food, energy, and trade services with only your non-core dollars. Save the core dollars for everything else.

Everything’s under control, situation normal.
