Yet a number of commodities and housing have increased along with the massive expansion of Federal Reserve M2 money stock. For example, used cars (Manheim US used vehicle value index) has increased 36% since December 31, 2019. Lumber has increased 149% over the same time period and copper has increased 43%. Home price growth has increased to 12% YoY, up from 6.6% for December 2019.
