Im super curious.

You always talk shit about democratic states like California and New York making the wrong economical decisions. You think we should follow Mississippi and Alabama policies? Texas is probably the only exceptional where a more conservative economic policy actually produce a net output, but take out the oil industry and it probably be just as shitty as the rest of the red states.
Brand new Rivian plant in Georgia as well as new Hyundai EV plant in Georgia. Wouldn't happen to have anything to do with the South being right to work states and no stupid auto unions.

Likely has more to do with taxes versus union stuff

I doubt this is true in aggregate. Consumer confidence is way down. Layoffs have already started, homes staying on the market longer, etc.
we'll see.

my problem has been availability of stuff.

I got plenty of stuff I want to buy - but its either so far out, why bother.. or just delayed availability to where i shelved it for now and will revisit

shrinkflation has been an issue in the food industry for decades

the newest box of saltines we got at the store are no longer square so they can be smaller in one dimension, looks to be ~10% smaller

and the bread slices from the same brand are smaller too :noes:

we had both old ones and new ones at the same time so we could compare :wtc:

Who could have foreseen that shutting down a bunch of businesses and then printing money and handing it out like candy would have had a negative effect on the economy?
The money handed to banks and corporations drawves the paltry amount given to people.

The FED started bond purchases (money printing) at the end of 2019.

on man cant wait to hear my dad bitch about this one, he gets super pissed about saltines for some reason. first they are somehow not salty enough anymore and then it was their availability due to supply chain issues
