This is exactly the kind of rslurred take I expect from burgers. Wage growth has actually been strongest at the low end, for the first time since the 1970s iirc.

Meanwhile, big tech is suffering because the ZIRP party is over and they have to cut the deadwood and show profits for the first time in decades.

>wage growth is solid

Too bad inflation and prices are outpacing the rate of wage growth.

look timmy, you think its bad that you used to save $1000 a month but now only save $300 spending on the exact same shit but thats actually a good thing because your wages have never been higher!

Only in the sleight-of-hand kind of way that labor cost is synonymous with a system's wages, and labor costs are a singular input of production.

In other words, so long as labor costs grow faster than other production inputs, we can say that wages outpace the growth of prices, though this doesn't help most Americans.

I mean when they go out and measure wage growth for the bottom percentiles and they measure price growth, the measured wage growth is greater than the measured price growth. There isn't really any slight of hand there?

In other words, so long as labor costs grow faster than other production inputs, we can say that wages outpace the growth of prices,

It seems like you have some kind of model in mind but it sounds like you're overlooking productivity growth, which explains most real wage increases. In other words in your model of the world it's impossible for real wages to ever increase over the long term but that's clearly not true; real wages are much much higher now than they were 100 years ago, obviously.

though this doesn't help most Americans.

I don't believe we've seen labor productivity rise to the extent that we've seen labor costs rise.

You could argue that total productivity has grown higher than wages, though it's easier to attribute these gains to capital improvements.

To the extent that a state should distribute the fruits of capital productivity is a political question, but for those of us not within the bottom quartile, the significant increases in labor costs hasn't been positive for QoL.

I dont care about the low end. They're low for a reason. I care about the middle end. 4 years ago I could spend $60 on groceries for a week. Now that same set of groceries costs me $120. I dont care if my wages go up if my purchasing power doesnt. This is Biden's fault for not reigning in the fed.

Of course theres going to be record profits when the money supply is inflated and all your costs just massively increased. Even if your margin decreased your profits could still go up. They just repeat this stuff without a source

I lost $1,000 to the taxman in April. :(

But a Fortune 100 CEO earned $1,000 just by inhaling the very same moment I cleared the check!

So, when you think about it, the total wealth of the world increased by $2,000. And I was proud to be part of that.

The actual day to day economy for real people is worse under Biden for the vast majority of Americans. This election is such a layup for Republicans if they played it right. Just play the clips of Biden and co in 2021 saying there is no inflation. Then show them passing massive blowout spending and everything that has ensued. That will work for the r-slurs that somehow sit on the fence in a general election.

When people couldn't afford housing during the Great Depression, they built shantytowns from scrap construction supplies and named them “Hoovervilles,” after President Herbert Hoover. Today, Americans increasingly live out of their cars because they can't afford housing. If history is any guide, will parking lots full of Americans soon be known as “Bidenvilles”?

The problem has gotten so bad that Sedona, Arizona, recently set aside a parking lot exclusively for these homeless workers. The city is even installing pottys and showers for the new occupants.

The average home in the city sells for $930,000, while most of the housing available for rent is not apartments, but luxury homes targeted at wealthy people on vacation.

With such a shortage of middle-class housing and with starter homes essentially nonexistent, low- and even middle-income blue-collar workers have nowhere to go at night but their back seat.

Good. Can't have those filthy poors strutting and snoring around our houses at night.

See, this is what I mean when I say that liberals need to work on their tone.

If they just said, "nah, the economy is fine. Don't worry about it. Let's talk about something else," then skeptics and even some rightoids would be prone to trust them.

But no, the moment they encounter any sort of dissension or opposition from the right, they start to sweat and pace back and forth and talk way too loudly and get flustered, and they adopt this imperious, lecturing tone, "How...HOW...HOW CAN YOU THINK THERE'S A RECESSION? There...there clearly isn't one! Here, read this pamphlet about it! I just...I just can't!!"

Of course if you're undecided, and you encounter someone that furious and agitated, you're not going to be easily swayed.

It's like the mask thing. Here's how democrats should have handled the mask thing: "look, there's a contagious disease. It costs you nothing to wear a mask. Let's band together and act like adults. We good? Okay. Let's move on to some other problems."

But no. The second a single republican expressed skepticism, democrats put on their drill sergeant hats and stick a scolding finger in your face, "OH YEAH? WELL I ORDER YOU TO WEAR A MASK! I'LL PASS LEGISLATION TO PUT YOU IN JAIL IF YOU DON'T! HEY WHERE ARE YOU GOING? WHY WON'T YOU COOPERATE, MAGGOT?!"
