Zip. Zero. Bupkis. No change to the headline consumer price index July to August.

Inflation in this economy is once again dead, it would seem, but there was a bump of eight tenths percent from July a year ago. That leads me back to this scene from "The Princess Bride." We've used it before, but it's just too good.
