Economists are divided on where we go from here the Fed share Powell. Believes that this is temporary that by the end of this year pricing should be normalized as we get back to normal. There's another group of top economists who believe that this could be more structural that. These rising prices are a sign of more to come and they look to the fact. That these supply disruptions faced by the pandemic and the labor shortages where are now seeing. Could amount to something bigger and longer term the bottom line here is we are looking for this.
