Key Inflation Measures Remain Weak as Fed Meets

Wall Street Journal (12/17/13) Eric Morath

The consumer price index advanced 1.2% in November year-to-year, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, while the consumption expenditures price index increased 0.7% in October year-to-year, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Both numbers are below the U.S. Federal Reserve’s 2.0% inflation target and demonstrate soft consumption and wage growth. These numbers may delay the Fed’s decision to slow its stimulus program. Some economists say the Fed could announce a slowing of its bond-buying program today due to an improving labor market and the recent federal budget deal.

Add Value to Your Client Relationships and Increase Loyalty

Giving superior customer service can increase loyalty and client retention rates. One way to provide that extra-special service is to be well versed in employment and labor law.
