YoY CPI falls to 8.5%, beating expectations

Some rare good news in a sea of bad.

How many words and terms did they have to "redefine" to achieve this "great" result.

It's so weird what we're calling "good" these days.

Well, it is better than 9.1%... Imagine if you will an administration being happy about 8.5% CPI...

Because last month it was over 9% and the expectation was that it would be 8.7%.

The bar is very low, but 8.5% is better than where we were at last month

It's not good, per se, but it's better than 9.1%. Whether it's believable is whole other argument..

The OP reminds of what Jack Nicklaus said after being asked what he thought of a 79 he shot in a tournament later in his career.

"Well, it's better than an 80"

Or akin to Cat 4 weakening to a Cat 3 as landfall approaches

And in a month the numbers will be reassessed upwards and the left biased fake news will put it on page 49 of the C section.

We’ve seen this a million times before!

Celebrating 8.5% is like being happy that someone just stabbed you in the face instead of shooting you

This is not good and only will get worse if they Dems pass their spending bills.
