The US economy is poised to recover from the crash caused by the pandemic, and the latest inflation data indicates this. But the labor market – a key factor for the Federal Reserve to consider tightening its monetary policy – has stalled on its rebound.

“Investors, however, remain a bit uneasy about inflation as they try to figure out whether it is still a supply problem or a more systemic one.”
