Correct. Normie-friendly sources like MarketWatch or Jim Cramer would never do anything to spook retail investors, at least not until Big Money™ has made their moves. Only then will Big Money send the OK signal to the financial media outlets so they can start saying, "OK, well actually there is a recession and rampant inflation and we've been in the shit this whole time and it's all very bad and we're all fucked."

Of course Big Money will have their shorts or whatever ready to go to capture the retail reaction.

WinstonSmith1984 11 points ago +12 / -1

"Boomers all own multiple homes"

Completely and demonstrably false. This whole "boomers this and boomers that" is just another division tactic from the Left.

-2
VoidWanderer -2 points ago +3 / -5

Then maybe boomers should do something about the hate they get by not continuing to do the things they get shit on for?

It's like the people that go off on me for being critical of women and enjoying the fact that the trans mess they allowed is destroying their areas. Maybe the people getting hate should look in the mirror and realize why they're getting that hate? If it was so easy to put a wedge between groups maybe that says more about what the groups themselves did to allow that wedge than the people calling them out.

You know, when the Soviet Union collapsed, Soviet citizens had plenty of money and work. But when they went to the store, there was nothing to buy.

When there is not enough food and basic goods to go around, do you think unemployment is going to be high?

Furthermore what good is a job if the wages are not even close to being sufficient to put food on the table?

Not every economic collapse is going to look the same. This is basic stuff, and these people are delusional, partisan, sycophantic fucking hacks.

Unemployment is low because people ran out of unemployment and couldn’t keep filing for it. If unemployment was actually low there wouldn’t be “now hiring” or “looking for help” signs on damn near every business I go to or drive past.

Pissed_American 0 points ago +1 / -1

You're right there are alot of people who gave up and probably just live off state and federal benefits. But there's also a lot of other options nowadays. Like remote working. People more than ever before are doing more side gigs and have different ways of making money. I can bet you if you're sign said you start at 22 an hour you'd have people coming in to apply. In many places 12-14$ isn't worth it anymore. It'll cost you as much just to get to work filling up your tank.

2
Burisma 2 points ago +2 / -0

If you live 15 miles from work that's a gallon there and a gallon back with crap mileage. Thats 10 dollars a day at 5 dollars a gallon. That's less than one hour of work at 12 dollars an hour.

1
Pissed_American 1 point ago +1 / -0

There are many people here in California drive further than that to work in severe stop and go traffic. Like a 10mph crawl of constant braking. But people who commute that far usually it's a better job than minimum wage. You could get one of those closer to home.

I'm not exactly sure why there's a hiring crisis. It's probably an accumulation of things. I think the internet made it possible to do a much wider range of things for money.

2
Burisma 2 points ago +2 / -0

Most of those jobs aren't recession proof. The gig market is luxury based. We are in for a wild ride.

It doesn't help that corporations want to run on skeleton crews to save money. The new norm is to hire a few people at $12/hour and then run their ass ragged doing the work of 10 people until they quit.

That is an insane fucking statement coming from Marketwatch. A recession is 2 consecutive quarters of declining GDP growth maybe with a slight rise in unemployment.

SteelDriver 2 points ago +2 / -0

Unemployment numbers are bullshit. If people drop out of the workforce (i.e. they quit looking for a job), they're no longer "unemployed". The "job gains" the administration keeps touting had to happen, since their left-leaning governors started opening everything back up after shutting everything down. I don't think "returning to normal operation" (although that's a stretch, considering many businesses did not survive the dictatorial shutdown) really counts as making things better. FJB and the horse he road in on.

No one in the comments has mentioned the labor participation rate... come on guys. It's the pimple on this "low unemployment" claim. We're below 2016 Obama lows of labor participation. Only mentioning one rate (unemployment) doesn't mean jack shit.

There's more than can be picked apart than with just two metrics, but we've got to be better at countering this stupid argument of low unemployment rate. Need to point to other cold hard facts that describe the situation. There's no way we can produce as much with more and more people being not interested in working!

Well, I just paid $400 for groceries that would have cost $250 six months ago. No baby formula to be found. I just paid $4.89 a gallon for regular gas, I just sold my car to a dealer for $10k more than I bought it for a year and a half ago, and my retirement accounts are down 20% YTD. Recession or no recession, we have massive stagflation. I knew Biden would be a terrible president, but I didn’t know anyone could be this terrible. Pay attention folks - this is what happens when the left controls all three branches of government. The worst has yet to come. I’ll never vote for a democrat the rest of my life, judging by the way things are going, won’t be very long.

Capital Expenditure is about to get slashed. Companies are already making plans to pull back to keep ocf targets. After that happens everything starts to slow. When work slows then revenue slows. Then companies start looking to reduce operational expenses which then destroys those low unemployment numbers. So, give it 6-10 months and see if this title still holds true.

Both of those signals mentioned in the byline don't suggest much about recession.

People are taking whatever bullshit job they can find because desperation is setting in and they're running out of those free Biden Bucks.

Corporate capital expenditure is up also because of aforementioned Biden Bucks. This was to try to offset the massive collapse that was already taking place.

If these things were happening organically it would be one thing, but they're happening because of looming recession. The other shoe just hasn't dropped yet.
