Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I stand by my statements that US fiscal policy is geared to consolidate and add value to fiat in the top 1%. The domestic market will be squeezed of every penny earned.

Yes, very much so.

A political narrative is built into all the main structural economic indicators, and that makes them suspect as a measure of what's really happening in the real economy. (q.v. our discussions about unemployment.)

Using them as if they measure something that matters only propagates the narrative - it doesn't necessarily tell anyone anything useful about the real experience at street level.
