Ok this inflation fueled recession is and always was 14 years in the making through both republican and democratic rule. The last couple of years just sped up the timeline a little bit but it's been coming since the 1st qualitative easing by the Fed. Then a systematic kicking of the can down the road and companies offshoring the production of things masked the inflation for all of that time. Now the gig is up and any more cam kicking will exacerbate the inflation, and the Fed raising rates to combat inflation will crash the economy. We are effed either way. Enjoy the next 5 to 7 years its going to suck.
