    Higher prices on lower sales. Sounds like stagflation to me.

    Thats one way to look at it , what we currently have are huge price increases for a lesser variety of goods and the FRN is devalued every day . Pretty predictable . Symptoms of failed state .

    RIP Dusty Hill , ZZ Top bassist passes away in Houston in his early 70's . Biden approval rating falling , currently at 46 percent which is only 5 better than Trump at this point in his presidency. Look for biden to continue to slide as he pushes vaccines , masks , continues being an enemy to American energy , inflation and oil continue to rise and the dollar becomes more worthless.

    Annually. And it's more like 3% even according to official CPI. But official CPI specifically does not count food, fuel, utilities and the other core costs of a typical American household. The intangible benefit of higher resolution gaming monitors, however, is counted by the official CPI and acts as a discount against inflation because a monitor with more pixels in 2021 akshually counts as 1.5 or 2 lower-resolution monitors from 2015. Therefore, even though the price has risen slightly, you are actually receiving more "hedonic value" per dollar. So inflation seems to be going up but it is akshually going down.

    Also, even if your paycheck was raised 3% per year like clockwork (so-called "cost-of-living pay-raise") timing matters.



    In this table, for the first year, your expenses and income were equal. In the second year, however, expenses rise by 3%. At the end of the second year, because prices have risen, your employer gives you a 3% raise to "offset inflation". Every year after that, both your expenses and your income increase by a 3% annual compound rate -- yet you keep falling further and further behind. This is why I despise the "yeah, but income rises with inflation, too" argument. It's an absolute insult to everyone's intelligence to even make that argument. How stupid do you think people are??

    I think the problem will be compounded by various other factors now . It looks as though the economy already peaked and is in decline . The inflation still to be there but growth could return to the doldrums of the usual dismal growth. What Americans are going to get now is just more of the same , debt , printing , costs rising more than the increasing wages and a dollar of no value .
