Still Deflating

Consumer prices rose less than expected in January while prices excluding food and energy actually fell — something that hasn’t happened in more than a quarter-century.

If we look at he numbers that Wal-Mart, the nation’s biggest retailer, posted earlier this week, they tell the tale of a Deflation.

Yes, deflation is moderating — but we see no real sign of inflation yet.
