As crooner Dean Martin once said, “Let ’em have it!” Ain’t this a kick in the … head.
Perhaps Joe Biden and Fed Chair Jay Powell are channeling Dean Martin by letting us have it.
Since Obama’s 3rd term as President (aka, Biden’s installation as President on January 20, 2021), mortgage rates have risen 87%, regular gasoline prices have risen 80%, CRB foodstuffs are up 59% and Commodities are up 63%.
And don’t forget about America’s energy life force, WTI Crude Oil. It is UP 123% under Biden.
Rents? Rising at a 16.8% rate.
Rents rising, food costs rising, energy costs rising, Biden and The Fed are taking us higher. In terms of prices and cost of living.
