EXAMINING THE CRB INDEX AS AN INDICATOR FOR U.S. INFLATION AgEcon
Acharya, Ram N.; Gentle, Paul F.; Mishra, Ashok K.; Paudel, Krishna P..
This paper analyzes historical movements in the commodity futures market and the relationship to inflation. Specifically, the relationship between the Commodity Research Bureau (CRB) Index and United States inflation is investigated. It is said that the relationship between the CRB index and the U.S. inflation rate was greater in the some periods than in another period. Then in recent times the CRB Index has proven to be a reliable early indicator of inflation. As the composition of the United States economy changes, the Commodity Research Bureau must make adjustments in order to provide a viable service.

Friedman's Hypothesis and Cross-Regional Inflation Dispersion AgEcon
Shoesmith, Gary L..
This study shows that higher inflation is associated with increased inflation dispersion across U.S. cities and regions. Regression analysis indicates that cross-regional inflation variability is positively related to both inflation and inflation expectations based on consumer price inflation for 18 U.S. cities. Similar results are obtained after excluding five of the 18 cities that may be disproportionately impacted by energy shocks. In addition, cointegration analysis shows greater cross-regional price dispersion over time during the higher inflation period of 1978-1987 than during 1988-1997. These findings suggest that high inflation is associated with greater uncertainty for businesses and policy makers.
