Well, the new inflation is a sign of rapid growth in the economy. Depending on how bad this inflation is, it could slow the growing economy as the FED increases interest rates to combat the new inflation. Some say the Fed will raise rates soon, but others think that won't happen until much later in the year. The rate at the moment I believe is 1% which is an historic low.
Yeah, there was a blurb on my ISP's news about inflation and growth and the possibility that the Fed will raise rates soon.

I don't think they are ajusted for inflation and i don't think it's common to do it.
Same for GDP and Interest Rates, they are also not adjusted for inflation.
If you would do it, you could see that the US has defacto negative Interest Rates.

It should be adjusted for inflation because the it what show that current budget deficits are not has high as people claim them to be.

STING2:
It somehow would make sense for the GDP and the Interest rates too, as i said it's not common but of course it wouldn't be absurd to do it
