Headlines That Matter…

💲Prices are still running hot. Two January inflation readings, the Consumer Price Index (CPI for short) measuring what you pay, and the Producer Price Index (PPI) measuring what companies pay to make your stuff, both showed price inflation higher than experts predicted.

Our take: This is another indication that we haven’t really beat inflation yet. It also likely means the Fed won’t lower interest rates until probably June at the earliest.   

🍫 Sweet tooth tax. The price of cocoa, the main ingredient in many of our favorite chocolate bars has doubled over the past year. Companies have been fighting the need to raise prices, but Hershey’s just warned that price increases are coming.

Our take: Before prices really rise, pick up that Easter or Halloween candy today (and yes we looked it up, chocolate is typically still good for at least a year). Or, if you want to give it up for good, there are plenty of health benefits you can gain in return.

📱Social media smokescreen. A judge just blocked an Ohio law that would require social media companies to obtain parental consent before allowing children under 16 to use their platforms.

Our take: If a reasonable law (like this one) was written in a way that will not stand up in court, it makes us very skeptical in lawmakers that claim to have a vested interest in solving this problem. For now, it looks like it’s just up to parents to protect their kids.
