"First, the full range of data on the labor market is a long way from showing that we face a significant increase in wages, much less an inflationary threat.
Second, whatever direction wages are headed now, pay has risen little during the past five years even as unemployment has fallen and productivity has gained.
That raises questions about whether today's labor market is still governed by the rules of our old Economics 101 textbook."
