hi mish, do you have any thoughts on the inflation rates calculated on www.chapwoodindex.com ? it shows double digit inflation using 500 items instead of the 80,000 hedonistically adjusted CPI. also, minor display issue for possible fine tuning, any chance of formtting the story displays so they fit neatly on a single screen and can be "downpaged" or scrolled onto the next three stories?

    I think inflation is understated and the Fed does not know what it is. But that looks like John Willaims Shadowstats kind of nonsense at first glance.
