    Globalization, China’s slowdown, demographics, and “transitory factors” like the drop in the price of oil since 2014 are part of the explanation. Recent research by Vanguard, for example, points to technology as another important—and often overlooked—factor.

    Even before the global financial crisis, improvements in technology were driving down the prices of computers, televisions, smartphones, and other consumer tech products. Vanguard also analyzed how about half a percentage point per year off final prices. If not for technology, the Fed’s favored measure of inflation (core personal consumption expenditures price index) would have reached its 2% target years ago, and nominal rates would be’s greater prominence in producing goods and services has lowered production costs.
