Wall St. For Main St., Released on 3/10/21

Inflation expectations for US consumers, according to surveys, are at their highest levels since 2013.

Even more proof is out lately that inflation is increasing globally in global supply chains, especially higher commodity prices.

There are signs that the food inflation that’s gripped the world over the past year, raising prices of everything from shredded cheese to peanut butter, is about to get worse.

And many companies like Michelin Tires are raising their prices considerably. Michelin just raised North American tire prices by 8%!

Producer prices in China in February also rose by the most in 2 years due to much higher commodity prices used for manufacturing.

Devalued currencies, higher commodity prices and other input costs rising for goods and services in the global supply chain means that costs will be rising for consumers and/or shrinkflation.
