David W. Berson on Yahoo Finance discusses inflation




Excerpt follows:

DAVID W. BERSON: …For January, we're going to see a reacceleration in inflation. I think the 0.5% estimate that is the consensus is probably going to be pretty close. Now, that doesn't mean that we're not seeing a disinflationary trend. You know, the decline last month, we're not seeing negative inflation. We're not seeing deflation. So a bump-up this month probably shows too much inflation. Last month certainly showed too little inflation compared to what's actually happening in the economy… Inflation is slowing-- not slowing nearly as much as it showed last month. You know, if you look at the 12-month change, we saw some pretty hefty inflation. It's down substantially from the peak. And we'll probably see inflation continue to moderate as the year goes on.
