    ... are becoming... are finding ...

    Some analysts point out that because people are becoming accustomed to
    a steady inflation rate of 4 to 5 percent,
    businesses are finding that
    they can raise prices by this amount without provoking strong public reaction.

    Question: At first I felt the verb tense ——————are finding that—————— is unimaginable,
    but now I am thinking that different business find that phenomenon at different time
    so it is not at the same time that the businesses finds that phenomenon.
    Is my opinion right?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Yes- it's a process, so some businesses raise their prices before others, and some still haven't done it.
