Highlights
Inflation expectations are as weak as actual inflation data. Business inflation expectations did rise 2 tenths in August to 1.9 percent but this is still a very soft reading. 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 low costs for cell phones and gasoline.

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
