Fun Fact 3:
Shelter, the single biggest component of CPI (Consumer Price Index, which is over one-third of the index), has now moved down on a YoY basis for 14 straight months (from a peak of 8.2% in March 2023 to 5.4% today). Given its long lag versus real-time data (Asking Rents down 0.8% YoY), a continued move lower in Shelter CPI is expected which should lead to a continued decline in core CPI.

Quote I’m pondering:

“Prices are important not because money is considered paramount but because prices are a fast and effective conveyor of information through a vast society in which fragmented knowledge must be coordinated.” — Thomas Sowell
