"Inflation may be here for awhile and more people are getting worried. In the U.S., economists were surprised when prices rose the most in 30 years with the potential to accelerate toward 7%. The British Chambers of Commerce said 80% of U.K. businesses are feeling the effects of inflation, too. President Joe Biden said his landmark infrastructure plan will help the U.S. economy get back to normal, but Democrats must also judge how quickly, and how much, prices might cool. Consumers there are paying more for milk, meat, soy sauce and above all gasoline. John Authers writes in Bloomberg Opinion that this weeks developments settle the debate over whether the trend, as the Federal Reserve insists, is transitory."

"Economic data is exceeding economists' ability to keep up.
According to Bloomberg, the Citigroup economic surprise index measures data surprises relative to market expectations. A positive reading means that data releases have been stronger than expected and a negative reading means that data releases have been worse than expected.
After a surge in positive economic reports a year ago, economists adjusted their expectations and subsequent reports failed to meet those higher standards. Dean noted that now that conditions are (somewhat) normalizing, reports are once again beating expectations.
In recent days, the Citigroup economic surprise index crossed above zero. This move into positive territory ended a streak of more than 70 days below zero."

"Wall Street is the only industry in America that has for decades contractually banned both its customers and its employees from utilizing the nations courts for claims against the Wall Street firm as a condition of opening an account or getting a job there.
Instead of being able to go to court with a claim of fraud if youre a customer, or a claim for labor law violations, like failure to pay overtime or sexual harassment if youre an employee, Wall Street makes its customers and employees sign an agreement to take all such claims into an industry-run or privately-run arbitration system. The above graphic from the study by the American Association for Justice shows how claimants faired in mandatory arbitration forums run by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and JAMS. The findings cover a broad range of industries, not just Wall Street."

"Tech stocks are surging left and right like it's 1999 all over again.
The S&P 500's cyclically adjusted P/E ratio was higher just once before now. Yes, you guessed it, leading up to the 2000 market top.
While technology is leading the charge, sky-high valuations seem to be widespread amongst multiple sectors.
A correction in ultra-high multiple names combined with multiple compression in more mature companies could cause a market meltdown soon."
