Biden planning to hit food ‘shrinkflation,’ corporate greed in SOTU (www.politico.com)

President Joe Biden is weighing how hard to hammer big food companies over painfully high grocery prices in his upcoming State of the Union Address. But some some aides remain wary of focusing too much on food inflation, given how little power the president has to singlehandedly force down prices....

Recent polling circulated within the White House has been favorable to Biden’s push to blast what he’s described on the campaign trail as “corporate greed” driving higher prices across a range of sectors.

Finally. Hopefully he brings more than finger wagging.

One of the best ways to stretch your grocery budget is to buy ingredients as whole as possible and then process them at home as much as possible. Especially vegetables.

At this point I don’t expect my government to do anything, just make nice sounds.

There's no houses that small for sale near me, but the cheapest livable house is about 3x that size, 4br, 2ba, for $150,000, but it's a townhome. If you want a single family you're looking at about $200,000. Central Pennsylvania, USA

They’re definitely fixer uppers, and new houses here are going for $450k and up but they’re like 3,000 sq ft

That's about $1.25 per second.

A buck and a quarter a second is seriously huge money. Dude's fucked and I'm loving it.

I'd want to head for the Canadian Rockies, somewhere near Banff. Not just for the cool name, but also because I like the cold and snow, I love the mountains, and it's going to be one of few places on Earth that will be habitable even with the worst of climate change.

Though now that nuclear war is back on the table I'm thinking Patagonia.

Not illegal, just heresy. Capitalism is our state religion and I get the same reaction from folks when I say I'm an atheist, too.

Also, I have never seen prices go down except for gas. The Fed wants around 2% inflation every year.

She's a pretty shitty wealth advisor if she thinks these things.

Economic writers always seem to find the richest people they know to interview about things. How about this guy talks to someone with negative net worth and a minimum wage job instead?

Helen is living in her car, trying to feed her kids
She got laid off of work and her house was repossessed
It's hard to think clearly when it's 38 degrees
Desperate people have been known to render desperate deeds
But when she shot that family and moved into their home
The paper read she suffered from dementia

Since we're in a complete fantasy land I'd get all the fairies, brownies, and other small folk to steal the brass from all the ammunition in the world and turn it into a giant statue. Then I'd have ghosts haunt anyone who has a gun so they're always aware that death is with them. The ATF would be staffed by vampires and trolls.

See, most companies would do this before they went public.

Hell yeah! I kept looking around for news about it but it was just summaries of what happened. Thanks for letting me know!

Investors will say “OK Boomer” to aging Reddit | Reuters | Ghostarchive (ghostarchive.org)

NEW YORK, Feb 7 (Reuters Breakingviews) - Social media platform Reddit, which helps its users “dive into anything,” may finally plunge into the public markets.
