1. John, I’ve personally seen the shortage of cars and large household appliances for sale. What’s driving this?

2. What’s the implication here for the recovery process?

3. Does this shortage help to keep inflationary pressures rev’d up?

4. What do you think of the latest Consumer Price Data? Was it a non-event?

5. There’s also something called “Wage Push Inflation” that you don’t hear discussed much. What is that?

6. What does all of this do to your economic outlook going into the second half of the year?

7. There’s also economic impact to oil that’s moving higher, correct?
