US Producer prices were expected to rise MoM following four declines in the last five months and they did, rising 0.6% MoM (double the expected 0.3% MoM rise). However, this was not enough to unwind the annual deflationary print (PPI -0.4% YoY)
This is the biggest MoM jump in headline PPI since Oct 2018.
Ex-food-and-energy, the beat was even more impressive with a 0.5% MoM spike vs 0.1% expected which lifted YoY Core PPI off its multi-year lows…
The biggest driver of this rebound was energy goods as food prices continue to slide.
However, even more stunning was a 7.8% surge in the index for portfolio management was a major factor in the

The indexes for machinery and vehicle wholesaling, automobiles and automobile parts retailing, long-distance motor carrying, legal services, and machinery and equipment parts and supplies wholesaling also moved higher. Conversely, prices for airline passenger

The indexes for diesel fuel, home heating oil, electric power, fluid milk products, and industrial chemicals also increased. Conversely, meat prices fell 8.0 percent. The indexes for residential natural gas and carbon steel scrap also decreased.

One of the signs of ruling class collapse is when they can no longer enforce the rules that maintain them as a ruling class. When the Romans started making exceptions to republican governance, it was a matter of time before someone simply decided the rules no longer applied to them.
