Wow really? That's fascinating! Can you elaborate?

Oh I thought there was something rational forthcoming, but it's just baselessly accusing the source of being propaganda.

I think it's way more complicated than that, and that the article disagrees with your unsourced personal opinions. I had hoped you'd have some collection of well sourced articles backing up the simplistic assertion of "line goes up" meme that directly counters the specific data in the article, but unfortunately I see you do not have any reliable data to support your position, much less refute what is in the article. I don't see this going anywhere.

Hilarious :)


Overall, we rate Brooking Institution Left-Center biased based on donations to primarily Democratic candidates and policy advocacy that slightly favors the left. We also rate them Very High for factual reporting due to strong sourcing and a clean fact check record. (D. Van Zandt 5/15/2016) Updated (12/22/2023)

I do, I have more than just what not to do, I was hoping you could elaborate on an option other than violence. But it seems you can't.

Before I give you what I think Hamas should do, are you declaring that you have no better option than violence, since that's the only thing we eliminated? Unless that is, you advocate for violence.

I disagree entirely. I would counter that your unsourced personal opinion does not counter data.

Well, you're entitled to your opinions, I'll stick with the data.

You're correct it is a different article. It is reporting on greedflation.

It was probably a combination of inventory management and greedflation. There's no reason why it has to be only one or the other.


Corporate price gouging has not been a primary driver of U.S. inflation, according to research published on Monday by economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

While markups for motor vehicles and petroleum products did rise sharply during the 2021-2022 inflation surge, markups across the entire spectrum of U.S. goods and services have been relatively flat during the post-pandemic recovery, the bank's latest Economic Letter showed.

"As such, rising markups have not been a main driver of the recent surge and subsequent decline in inflation during the current recovery," wrote the bank's research chief Sylvain Leduc and colleagues Huiyu Li and Zheng Liu.
