Inflation data points to firming economy | Reuters

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: It would be foolish to take the establishment media story below at face value. Have you been to the grocery store lately?

Don't Believe The Hype, Inflation Is Alive And Kicking Consumers - Forbes

A good doctor will not simply make a diagnosis based on measurements. The symptoms and complaints expressed by the patient are at least as important in making a determination as the data provided by diagnostic tools.

Inflation angst evaporates in race for returns | Reuters

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: These so-called experts and the establishment media are lying to you. Printing money to pay bills is NOT a good thing! History SHOWS us that it only leads to one thing.... Hard times ahead.

(Reuters) - For all the trillions of dollars-worth in new money that central banks are printing, financial markets seem to be signaling that fears of rampant global inflation are unfounded.

Over the past month, investors have devoured virtually any fixed income securities on offer, from the U.S. Treasury to tech giant Apple, debt-laden euro sovereigns Italy or Slovenia and even debut bonds from exotic African countries like Rwanda.

(Reuters) - Federal Reserve policymakers went out of their way on Saturday to play down the risk that aggressive measures to bolster the U.S. economy would lead to inflation in the future, in a clear signal of support for its ongoing actions to spur growth.

The U.S. central bank last month maintained a controversial program of buying $85 billion of bonds a month, while pledging to keep interest rates near zero until unemployment hits at least 6.5 percent, so long as inflation stays under 2.5 percent.

It rose 0.3% (after inflation) in both January and February, the government reported this morning, and looks likely to rise at a 3% annual rate in the first quarter, a major reason many first quarter GDP growth estimates now top 3%.
