So just as Americans get increased wages, producers hike prices. Hiking prices together but totally not in any coordinated way.

The system? It's gamed, Jerry.

Diogenes: I'm not sure what to make of this.


Depends on who you believe, to the left, it's horrible, a sign of impending doom!
To the right, it's great, our bigly president is winning!

The truth is generally somewhere in the middle.

It's working for me.  I just recently quit a graveyard shift job with a compressed workweek ( not good for my health), for a day shift job with normal hours, making roughly the same $$$.

/ I'm not giving Trump the credit for a great economy
// I also didn't blame GWB for causing the 2008 recession ( & losing my job).

Thanks obama.

What do ya do?  If you're any good at programming and know some ladder logic, you can make some serious money doing industrial control software.

Remember when Monopolies were illegal?

Fortunately, we are only going to borrowing TRILLIONS of dollars to finance the tax cuts for the top 1% during a peacetime growing economy.

Because we definitely want to borrow that money at higher and higher interest rates. That won't be even more costly ...

No programming unfortunately.   Cloud app management sort of stuff most recently, (AWS certified and chasing RHL cert as well), so looking to continue in that direction.

Something will turn up, this has been a frustrating summer though.
