Highlights
Business expectations for inflation show no effects from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma as the 12-month outlook remains unchanged at a subdued 1.9 percent. Weakness in inflation expectations, both at the business and consumer levels, is a major concern for Federal Reserve policy makers and do not increase the chances for a third rate hike this year.

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
