Asian shares bounce back, shrugging off inflation concerns

Asian shares bounced back Friday from losses earlier in the week, shrugging off data showing U.S. wholesale prices soared 11% in April from a year earlier.

The regional rally followed a mixed and muted close on Wall Street. Oil prices and U.S. futures also were higher.

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, fresh off winning Senate confirmation for a second four-year term, for the first time Thursday acknowledged that high inflation and weakness in other economies could thwart his efforts to avoid a recession.

Powell had earlier sought to portray the Fed’s efforts to tighten interest rates as consistent with a so-called “soft landing” for the economy.

Southwest has always offered fewer amenities than bigger rivals, right down to its lack of assigned seats and first-class cabins. The
