Real Vision senior editor Ash Bennington and Petr Pinkhasov welcome Weston Nakamura to examine the weekly jobs data, how yesterday’s core CPI actually hit below expectations, and updates on the Poly Network hack as well as a new attack on DAO Maker. Even as the jobless claims data show a third consecutive decline in new unemployment claims, demonstrating a more sustained recovery in the labor market thus far, Nakamura draws attention to the fact that core CPI actually came in below economist expectations, which might be signaling a deceleration in inflation. He unpacks why this was the case and what it means for the economy and markets in the coming months. Bennington also provides an update on the Poly Network hack and discusses a new one on DAO Maker that occurred today.
