I report the official 12-month CPI-U.

John Williams backs out the real numbers and finds a much higher inflation rate.


And yet the prices of actual things, for actual sale, by actual merchants, in actual transactions, doesn't reflect his "higher" inflation at all.

Some people might begin to wonder if "actual prices" trump Williams' "higher inflation rate."

Also, the Velocity of money is very low. John Hussman explains how that suppresses the inflation rate.

Would this be in the same way he explained how hyperinflation was just around the corner - back in 2009?
