Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 12Here's the data for June and July, graphed. And now the question I would simply never have thought to add to a freshman exam: Calculate the inflation rate in July.1216204

Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 12Yes, sweetheart, but if the consumer price index was 295.3 in June (it was) and it was also 295.3 in July (also true), then it does follow that the consumer price index didn't rise in July, and hence inflation (aka the rate of change of prices) was 0%.Quote TweetDinesh D'Souza@DineshDSouza Aug 10If inflation is at 8.5 percent in June and remains at 8.5 percent in July, it does NOT follow that the inflation rate for July is 0 percent. This is shameless prevarication! twitter.com/PressSec/statu 65128969

Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 11It follows that Biden lied about stagflation! (even though he never used the term).Quote TweetPaul Krugman@paulkrugman Aug 11Gotta say, Republicans don't rest on their laurels. The "Biden lied about inflation!" discourse is making the "Biden lied about recession!" discourse look reasonable by comparison1222


Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 11If there's one thing recent inflation data have made clear, it's that misunderstanding of first derivatives is growing strongly (or perhaps it's just a high level?)1515151


Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 11The U.S. is at risk of losing an economically, culturally, and politically important export market -- one that creates high-quality high-pay jobs, and turbo charges the spread of ideas to the world.Quote TweetCaleb Watney@calebwatney Aug 11Seems bad!Show this thread2748170

Matthew Yglesias@mattyglesias Aug 11The hill that I am literally going to die on is that there was a zero percent inflation rate in July because it s true. This dipshit won t just say that s true even though it s true, so he keeps shifting around to other claims.Quote TweetNoam Blum@neontaster Aug 11Matt is really going to die on the hill that prices aren t high because month over month was zero.

Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences@HarvardGSAS Aug 10The rate of #inflation fell in July but still remains high. What are the sources of the price hikes? Does the Fed need to be aggressive or patient? Where is the US economy headed next? Economists @JustinWolfers and @BetseyStevenson of @fordschool weigh in.gsas.harvard.eduBoom, Bust, or Simply Getting Better?A surge in hiring. Soaring inflation.

Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 10Two things can be true: 1. Today's inflation number was encouraging. It tempers a lot of recent pessimism. This may be the start of a disinflationary trend. 2. This was just one month's data and it wouldn't be surprising if (core) inflation were to run a little hotter next month10117557

Show this thread


Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 10Some useful context on that encouraging core inflation print:Quote TweetMike Konczal@rortybomb Aug 10Forget the zero headline; core inflation takes a dive last month, coming in at an annualized 3%, driven by a decrease in services. Compare it to the ~5% average it's been at since October 2021. One month doesn't make a trend, but the most encouraging print I could have imagined.Show this thread5114454

Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 10The reduction in goods inflation may have (finally!) arrived: Goods (ex food and energy) up only +0.2% last month, after running at a much hotter pace through the year. Services inflation also appears to be moderating, at +0.4% last month.6107557

Show this thread


Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 10Overall inflation still remains worryingly high, running at 8.5% over the past year (down from 9.1%). A lot of that reflects the energy crisis, so better to focus on core inflation, which is 5.9% over the past year, which is the same as last month.25133714

Show this thread


Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 10Holy cow: There was ZERO inflation last month. That's the headline number, which is well below expectations of +0.2%. Also a good core inflation reading: +0.3%, also below expectations of 0.5%. Finally some good news on the inflation front. We've likely seen the inflation peak.6804,75815.9K

Justin Wolfers@JustinWolfers Aug 7I'm not really a "stick to your lane" guy, but the idea that an economist has anything original, useful, or insightful to add about the origins of covid-19 strikes me as very unlikey.
