I have to give this Bloomberg author credit for optimism with this article on wages and employment. Citing the BLS... The article filled with optimism and it might be warranted, if not for another report from that same BLS, back in August... Granted the Bloomberg report is for August Earnings and the BLS report I cited is for July, but I doubt inflation fell in August. We should know shortly with the next CPI due out on Thursday, along with the real average earnings report. Just click on the BLS link above and see for yourself on Thursday. BTW, the CPI-U is forecast at 2.8%, with a range of 2.7%~3.0%. Is the glass half full, or half empty?
