Robert J. Samuelson reports on inflation being under control

Robert J. Samuelson writes that a big story is being missed:

One important story we're missing today is the absence of sharply higher inflation. Look at the numbers. For the past 12 months the consumer price index (CPI) is up only 2.5 percent; since 1997 annual increases have averaged 2.4 percent.
