August 2017Does It Matter If Statistical Agencies Frame the Month’s CPI Reporton a 1-Month or 12-month Basis?
with Jeffrey A. Frankel: w23754
When the US Bureau of Labor Statistics releases new numbers, in theory it should make no difference whether the press release emphasizes the most recent 1-month number, which is what it always does, or the 12-month number, as many other countries’ statistical agencies do. This paper offers the hypothesis that it does matter: Markets react to CPI inflation news via whichever framing the agency has adopted.
