Chart, inflation october : CPI at +3,9 % and PPI at +8,5 %

Consumer Price Index and Producer Price Index reports for october have been published (source Bureau of Trade and Economic Indices).


Good news : the pace of inflation is decreasing.

CPI = +3,9 % compared to october 2007
PPI = +8,5 % compared to october 2007 (spectacular drop, from +19 % in september !)

That’s a good news indeed. Particularily on the PPI front.

But if the % of inflation, the pace, is declining year on year, compared to the previous months… it’s important to remember that prices remain… high in absolute values.

Here is the CPI with values and % of change.


We have some margins before to see a real deflation, AKA a general fall of prices…
