cant be inflation if theres too much capacity. house flipping is exception.. houses, unlike fast food or retailers or much of tech are not in great supply, people cant live in tents, house flipping deserves investment cash.
what else out there is scarce. the transports are getting crushed, . maybe minimum wage hikes inspire positive growth in the longer term? .or maybe wall street offers etf in house flipping.
But not all economists have been calling for higher growth, last year a few had negative opinions. With the understanding that economics is not an exact science do the voices stressing high employment future higher inflation and the absolute need for fed tightening gain from rate increase or are these true economic assessments.... Banks do better with higher rates but if negative voices prove correct will higher rates squash the low levels of growth currently existing? Also with so much demand for taxpayer cash fed programs and services doesnt this economy need stronger growth and higher salaries as support for higher rates, also when the fed factors their concerns how important is the question that with zero rates the fed has no firing power if the economy really stumbles.
you cant fight the fed , can you fight if gvt resources of billions go to promote gas free,. ultra liberal very rich people push electric...opec sees the future and will not cut production to raise price... valuation in the long run is determined by where cash goes..
Looks like opec got the message. if they cut production it becomes easier for gvt (taxpayer) cash subsidy to tesla..But lower and lowering oil means job losses in the entire area of exploration and development. high paying jobs with declining real estate prices. it is looking more and more like a long bear market.
The middle class is the loser.
listened to the cnbc interview, musk twice stated that TAXPAYERS approve this subsidy, what?
it is time with elections near to ask pols, all of them how much they are putting us on the hook for.
but.. but... but... theres only one amzn
theres ZILLIONS burger places and more coming
you mean burgers ARE tulips? but remember we might have chicken too.
dont worry be happy, in negative gdp growth we have nowhere to go but up!
it doesnt really matter, the problem actually might be if the economy slides into negative then what? how much "play" does the fed have with "zero" rates...........anyway dont worry be happy our politicians will be there to help us out. maybe more free houses?
Last year as this economy was projected to grow at 3, 4 percent, there were a couple voices accurately predicted quarterly declines, But we were going to inflation according to the majority, not so according to those proven correct. .. now that we are at 0.2 and companies rush for legal advice as to how to leave USA for currency favorability (pricy dollars) and taxation advantages, merge or acquire, it appears that the fed is ok with sayonara USA based companies, dollars can strengthen further and "rates normalized?" last I heard the USA was yet a capitalist country, but rip van winkle might disagree, after a long long sleep it appears government is now in firm control, spending, taxing, more and more dependency....this soon may hit the fan as yet government cannot dictate where cash goes.
those who sold last week saw the light there is no way it will recover, look this economy is growing at .02 percent? bond rates are rising, the dollar is getting stronger clocking business further, more companies wish to relocate overseas and last week this stock was being pumped.. it is sell market and buy asia after the coming corrections.
you cant take risks in economy growing 1 percent or less.. even gambling took a hit today........mergers and acquisitions have value, dis is a keeper, kids and movies and merchandise and parks...
