Today’s CPI numbers came in at a better-than-expected 8.5% annual inflation and 0% monthly.

This episode is sponsored by Nexo.io, Chainalysis, FTX US and NEAR.

The biggest driver of the macroeconomic backdrop is inflation. At the last FOMC meeting, the Federal Reserve made it clear that its fall decisions about interest-rate increases would be driven by data – most notably inflation data. On today’s show, NLW looks at the just-released July inflation stats and why they’re the first positive inflation surprise we’ve had in more than a year.
