Devonshire Research Group releases August Contrarians Inflation Consensus report, estimates consumer inflation at nearly four times official rate
October 12, 2017 --
NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, October 12, 2017, Devonshire Research Group (DRG), a New York-based research and analysis firm, issued its first monthly report summarizing the contrarian consensus on inflation. Devonshire's report follows its analysis from earlier this year, entitled "Consensus of the Contrarians," a result of extensive economic analysis and months of research. The presentation can be found on the Devonshire Research Group's website at www.devonshireresearch.com.
Devonshire collects the annual inflation reports of three contrarian inflation analysts which model inflation independently from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). This contrarian collection places inflation far higher than the BLS' Consumer Price Index (CPI). Devonshire's August inflation report places consumer price inflation for the twelve months ending August 2017 at 7.89%. This contrasts with the official CPI, which reported year-to-year inflation through August at 1.94%.
The Contrarian Inflation Consensus (CIC) is based on alternative inflation models: the Chapwood Index, the Shadowstats Alternate CPI and the NowandFutures model, which Devonshire recently acquired for its proprietary data. DRG believes the dissenting view of inflation provided with its monthly CIC report has profound implications for economic policy makers and investors. DRG plans to explore these implications in future CIC releases, which will be made available immediately to DRG subscribers, and delayed 1 or more months to the general public.
