Q: How long from here should Americans be prepared for that economic pain? Fed Chair Powell: "How long? I mean it really depends on how long it takes for wages and more than that, prices, to come down for inflation to come down."

Q: 1.3 million jobs, is that acceptable job loss? Fed chair Powell: "...We're never going to say there are too many people working, but the real point is this, inflation..."

It’s increasingly looking like the Fed panicked right at peak inflation.

The Fed could do a lot to ease inflation by selling off some of the $1.3 trillion in mortgage-backed securities it has acquired since Feb 2020, which inflated housing costs by 12.7%. But it prefers to protect wealth over employment, so instead it jacks up interest rates.

So much tech sector “innovation” isn’t code or design or algorithms—its finding novel ways to avoid paying for labor.

Fed Chair Powell seems determined to push the economy over a cliff—even after he admitted rate hikes won’t lower key prices. Destroying jobs and crushing wages of millions of workers is reckless and dangerous. Recession is not the solution to inflation.

corporate profits are the highest in decades, weird how that doesn't factor into the inflation discourse but ordinary people's meager wage increases do

Corporate greed, not wages, is behind inflation. It's time for price controls
