CPI Report Shows Inflation Eased to 3% in June - WSJ

So-called core consumer prices, which excludes volatile food and energy categories, rose 4.8%

I’ve loved this magic! Media and politicos each month review the difference between core and consumer price index inflation, then trumpet whichever value is lower.

How do we measure inflation? By whichever value makes us look the best!
