But the inflationary gauges CPI and PPI exclude food and energyso that leaves metal, housing and tuitions. Well housing is a bubble that will settle and tuition, well free economy. So our economy is doing great. Psych!!! Here comes the rate cuts to bail out the basterds who bought houses on interst only loans while suckers like me who rented hoping the housing prices to go down so I can put 20% down and get a decent mortgage are being screwed royally without any lubricants cause you know what all the dollars I saved up aren't even worth using as toilet paper.
