The government’s December consumer price index on Wednesday showed an increase of 7% year over year, in-line with estimates and the hottest increase since 1982. Core CPI, which excludes food and energy, rose 5.5% year over year, slightly higher than expectations. Inflation has been eating into otherwise strong wage gains for workers. The 10-year Treasury yield on Wednesday dipped to near 1.72% after release of the data and following a spike this year to over 1.8% earlier this week.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell declared on Tuesday the U.S. economy is both healthy enough and in need of tighter monetary policy to control inflation. That probably will mean interest rate hikes this year, tapering of monthly asset purchases and reducing the Fed’s balance sheet. Investors largely expect the Fed to start raising rates in March. Markets are pricing a nearly 79% chance for the first quarter-percentage-point increase to come in May and see about a 50% chance the Fed could enact four such hikes in 2022.

The effort is aimed at easing supply shortages and promoting safety in schools. That’s on top of more than $10 billion devoted to school-based tests authorized in the Covid relief law.
