Real or Inflated? What to Make of Inflation Concerns?

Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

Location: Online

The Consumer Price Index has risen by an average of 0.7 percent per month over the last three months, is now 5 percent higher than a year ago, and is already up 2.7 percent in just the first five months of 2021. While many view current high rates of inflation as transitory, some have raised concerns about more persistent price pressures.
