Highlights
Price pressures are steady so far this month based on the Atlanta Fed's business inflation index for May which rose a very modest 1 tenth to a year-on-year 2.0 percent. And costs are moderating, to a yearly 1.8 percent for a 1 tenth decline. Price expectations, both in this report and on the consumer side, have been muted, a factor that may limit the Federal Reserve's efforts to reinflate the economy.

Definition
The Atlanta Fed's Business Inflation Expectations survey provides a monthly measure of year-ahead inflation expectations and inflation uncertainty from the perspective of firms. The survey also provides a monthly gauge of firms' current sales, profit margins, and unit cost changes.  Why Investors Care
