I don’t pretend to be an economist so feel free to school me. For the purposes of this thread—what items or services have you noticed skyrocket overnight that point towards inflation.
Everything, especially lumbers. As our government kept on printing more $$$ double digit inflation will be here sooner than you think. 1970's here we come again.
If the Feds doesn't raise interest rate to protect against inflation then a loaf of bread will soon cost $7, but if they do raise interest rates the stock market and the housing market will crash, so yes, we are dead either way. Our government must stop spending more money than they take in. Paying people for not working till Sept??, no wonder the restaurant business couldn't find any workers. why work when you are being paid for doing nothing??

Offer a living wage and you won't have problems filling jobs.
We just ordered 5 windows.
Two medium sized ones in bedrooms and three smaller ones for bathrooms and the laundry room. Cost is $4200, installed.
I am still reeling.
This is twice what we paid for 8 windows ten years ago.
Everything is more expensive these days. How much is a banana? $10?
I'm paying $4.40 for premium gas here in Ca. my gas tank can hold 22 gals so you do the math.
Used cars are selling at an all time high right now due to microchip shortage. This demand is not expected to last. Time to trade in your gas guzzler for one that doesn't require premium gas!
Quick question. Why would anyone buy used if they could buy new? Given that dealers are overpaying sellers for their trade-in’s?
