The recent U.S. spike in inflation is unlikely to persist beyond this year, according to a new San Francisco Fed blog post Friday, noting that price increases in health-care services, used vehicles and other "Covid-sensitive" products should be temporary.
Economist Adam Shapiro also noted a risk that recent gains could end up "raising longer-run inflation expectations among businesses, altering current and future price-setting behavior." MNI has reported the Fed's downplaying of faster inflation may send price expectations lurching higher than policymakers want.
