The Year of Disinflation

This past year brought substantial progress in reducing both inflation and expectations of future inflation. Prices rose less than in any year in the past decade. Even more significant, the disinflation process has broadened to encompass a steadily widening range of economic activities and decisions, suggesting that last year's progress against inflation may be a precursor of more to come.
