Business Outlook: THE WEEK AHEAD
PRODUCER PRICE INDEX Tuesday, Mar. 15, 8:30 a.m.
Producer prices of finished goods likely rose 0.3% in February, a bit faster than the 0.2% gain in January. But prices at the producer level have hardly budged over the past year. Excluding the volatile food and energy sectors, prices probably rose 0.2% in February, half of the increase in January.
