A theory is appropriate as long as it fits into the fact; when a theory doesn't fit in the fact, it's wise to walk with the fact.

Inflation in August reached 11.3%

Though food inflation declined marginally in August 2011 from its level in July, the overall inflation rose to 11.3% in August from 11.0% in July, basically due to significant increase in non-food inflation (from 6.5% in July to 8.8% in August!). Interestingly, the rise in non-food inflation is higher in rural areas than urban areas!

The significant increase in non-food inflation lately may be due to the second-round effect (wage rise) of high food inflation and, usually it persists for a longer term.
