Recent economic indicators point to a continuing recovery from the instability of last summer when the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic led to an inflationary spike in the US economy. April’s inflation report delivered the latest indication that this trend is continuing, with a 4.9% year-on-year growth in prices.
