Biden is sabre-rattling against the Russians.  Oddly enough, more of the Russian perspective is getting into western media this time round.

I don't like the notion of Biden creating a Bread & Circus moment for US voters but then he has been shown to be willing to compromise.  The probability of direct confrontation with Russia converges on zero.

Trump poured the lighter fluid, struck the match, lit the flames, waited to call the fire department, and now wants to complain Biden can't put the fire out.

So my question is... "inflation" means they won't be $15 next year, but $17 and over $20 before the next presidential election. If they stay at $15 and housing prices stabilize, then inflation was indeed transitory and these were just corrections, no?

Mostly transitory unless inflation expectations change.  That is a risk.  An earlier, faster reduction in bond purchases, as signalled, may help to keep inflation expectations anchored.

Was playing with COVID-19 per capita death rates on the Financial Times website.  US death rates rates are shooting up.  But not so much in the four largest, most economically important states.

Nevertheless, it looks like US economic growth is slowing or will slow but by how much remains to be seen.  A near-term slowdown will help tame this kind of measured inflation and help keep pressure off of oil prices.

I blame Biden for following Trump's policies on trade, spending, and (to a large degree) immigration. So no, Biden is terrible. He deserves a lot of blame. He was sold as knowing better, and he clearly doesn't.

ECB has also come out on the side of transitory. Personally, I'm not convinced either, but time will tell.  Main point is, the global economy has taken a tremendous hit coming out of left field and the effects are still reverberating around the world's markets. It will take a while to settle.

It's obviously being caused by an economy that's rebounding and ready to participate - but the supply chain prevents it. So, costs of available goods and services rise in the face of lack of supply. Is that permanent? Not in the real world.

Writing legislation to help protect Americans against a (for now) preventable fatal respiratory infection is "playing god"? Sounds like straightforward public health policy, like the other requirements to protect against communicable diseases amongst our nation's citizens. Weird to be against that, unless you're wanting people to get sick and die. And who wants that?

In a different arena, actively writing and passing legislation forcing the closure of abortion clinics isn't "playing god"? What kind of playing is it?

A snowball's chance in hell of getting reinstated in the SCOTUS.

Meanwhile he has yet to follow court orders and reinstate the Remain in Mexico Policy.

But wait, there's more.  Inflation is now officially a permanent thing.  It is no longer to be considered transitory.

Carter will live long enough to see someone do worse than him and make an even bigger mess than he did.


Yup, the 45th president put that argument to rest. 👍
