I don't see how this gets better anytime soon. The demand to maintain facilities that are already in place plus the increased demand from new facilities being built. It's going to be interesting to see if companies leave a machine down due to a lack of something like a safety switch or if they just start bypassing shit.
In my 20+ year experience of industrial automation sales One thing holds true. An engineer can design safety into the machine but at the end of the day the operators WILL 100% of the time find a way to bypass.

the french revolution overthrew the entire broken system. Jan 6 just wanted their shitty king on the throne but everything else the same.
i have never been one of the "the end is coming" types, but it really really feels like we are almost to that breaking point.

Now granted most of my news comes from twitter and twitter isnt a real place, but man if you stick around there long enough you can really be convinced this shit is bending and about to break

You're probably right. But that doesn't mean they don't need to be more aggressive than that.
Why would they need to be more aggressive? You dont want to fuck with rates too much, you cant just raise the rates by 500bp and stop inflation in its tracks without tanking the entire thing.

Easy monetary policy + supply chain issues + european war = inflation. Its also not hyper inflation, so you need to be conservative.
