Highlights
Inflation expectations are not only sinking at the consumer level, they're beginning to sink at the business level as well. The Atlanta Fed's gauge for 1-year business expectations is down a sharp 3 tenths in the July report to 1.7 percent which is the lowest reading since October last year. Expectations for sales held steady with profit expectations improving slightly. The inability to get prices going is a major concern for Federal Reserve policy makers who have been attributing the weakness to one-time factors such as lower costs for cell phones and gasoline, factors that may or may not be at play in this report.

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
