Thanks for the information and perspective Mayhem. I would be interested in what you are looking at to shape your view on inflation going forward. It's clear you think it will be sticky and this is treated almost axiomatically. You mention services, but the biggest inflationary component there is shelter and we know that data lags, and then you do a very thorough job of showing why this is actually deflationary now. In other words, what would change your mind on inflation going forward? Thanks!
