On the macro level, in general, my country’s national economy withstood the impact of a variety of unexpected factors in August and continued to recover and develop, with positive changes in major indicators. However, it should also be noted that the international environment is still complex and severe, and the foundation for domestic economic recovery is still not solid.
The US CPI data in August shows that US inflation is still rising. Although the year-on-year CPI growth rate has fallen slightly, the year-on-year CPI and core CPI are still much higher than the Fed’s inflation target of 2%.
