January 2022 CPI data are scheduled to be released on Thursday, February 10, 2022, at 8:30 A.M.
- Economists are forecasting a 7.3% year over year increase in January’s CPI (Consumer Price Index) after a 7% rise in December. The Core CPI, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, is expected to rise 5.9% compared to 5.5% previously. As the chart below shows, the current level of the CPI is at a 40-year high.
- In Astoria’s view, inflation was notably lower over the past decade as lower interest rates spurred the growth of technology which resulted in lower prices for goods and services. As we have argued in the past, we believe inflation will remain structurally higher in the years ahead as supply chains are rebuilt and corporations have pricing power. People seem willing to pay higher premiums for goods and services.
