    All time low unemployment rate in the midst of decent wage growth, eh? It's almost like we set an agenda to .... #BuildBackBetter. :awesomeface:

    Such bizarre framing. Why would he invite a non-democracy to a democracy meeting?

    The Fed is about to start increasing interest rates, unemployment is going to start creeping back up. (Which is not Biden’s fault)

    I agree with you, just bad timing to play hard ball given how bad inflation is for energy right now.

    most likely scenario is that interest rates still won't be touched until latter half of next year

    especially with lots of signs the supply chain is normalizing

    Sure in a perfect world but Bidens current energy policy also has the secondary effect of increased coal use domestically and abroad.

    Biden should’ve turned on the PR and acted like oil is high because the economy is strong instead of playing it defensively. Cause eventually the SPR will look like a failure.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s even a little sooner, I think the Fed are starting to feel uneasy about the latest inflation prints and you can see it in their latest comments. Also while I agree that I think supply chains are starting to ease I think the tight labor market (pressuring wages up) and owner equivalent rent will still cause some pain.

    Even Brainards tune has changed: “I am committed to putting working Americans at the center of my efforts at the Federal Reserve. This means getting inflation down at a time when people are focused on their jobs and how far their paychecks will go."

    theres an impact where the Fed just moving its predictions to late 2022 for rate raises will cause a tightening without actually doing it, not breaking news but it basically matters how the next 3 months go whether it gets moved up again or scaled back. with huge GDP numbers, employment going down, real wage growth for the majority of americans, etc as long as inflation doesn't REALLY go crazy the powell gang is going to be conservative and let things play out.

    Yea bluff just long enough to get some breathing room is also an option.

    One that could also potentially backfire as well.

    Could be naive but with so many companies stashing headcount and budget over 2020 I'd guess it has more to do with not wanting to hire people and making excuses to work more with less people more than it is an understanding and manipulation of macroeconomics.

    Words have meaning but the flip side of that is that that meaning can change as more people start using the word “incorrectly”. I’m the moronic asshole clinging to the old meaning of the word as these shitlibs drag it in a different direction.
