Highlights
Despite tariffs and high input costs, inflation expectations among businesses are not accelerating, at 2.1 percent in August and unchanged from July. Yet this reading, like most inflation data, has in fact been trending incrementally higher, moving from the 1.7 percent rate to just over 2 percent over the last year. Watch for Friday's consumer sentiment report where inflation expectations at the consumer level edged higher in June before slipping back in July.

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
