Will Zero Hedge be decoding the expected manipulated CPI ?

The BLS will decode it for you.  They throw everything out there.  Even their hedonic adjustments.

China's economy might be in a bubble, but their stock market sure isn't.

Still waffling around.

Wait until those 1 billion Chinese learn the thrill of stock market gambling...

I worry a little that they are just now learning the thrill of precious metal investing.  It is irrational to some degree to overweight pm's excessively in one's portfolio, but Richard Russell said once that there is no fever like gold fever.  I am afraid they know their system is corrupt and may turn to barbarous relics

UK CPI Another elevated print of about 4.3% yoy is about to be released. Consensus expects a reading closer to 4%.

No doubt, for the 19th consecutive month, the above-target inflation rate will be blamed on "temporary factors".

I wish I was kidding.

About CPI, I just happened to land on this page:


Hedonic Quality Adjustment in the CPI

http://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpihqaitem.htm

They perform hedonic adjustments on not only appliances and televisions, but clothes, footwear, and educational books!
