They should go by bicycle like Mayor Pete.

Making comparisons with Japan is a bit weird/. The use of automobiles in the US and the distances people have to travel in may cases makes the comparison pointless.

Cheap gas is like guns in the US - a cultural issue as well as an economic one.

More neo lib nonsense that only helps the rich and famous. Biden and his cabal really are going back to the future.

Sceptical

You cannot be serious. Buy bonds in an environment where rates are rising? Buy a bond that yields (say) .25 % when inflation is north of 5%? Wouldn't want to have your pension fund.

sorry but your example is spurious. Money printing IS inflation - inflation of the money supply. Which almost always leads to price rises (actually not a rise in the value of the good being priced but a devaluation of the currency being used to buy it).

JL - over the past 30 years there have been a number of factors that allowed developed nations to export inflation and that led to dramatic increases in prosperity in the receiving countries. Those days are over.

Covid accelerated this because so many countries accelerated their printing. Ukraine is a red herring in the discussion of price rises.

Likely none of these shootings was committed with a licensed gun. So more gun control is a pretty silly way to address this issue

Not like his opinion carries much real weight. Maybe a little bit of moral weight. But even then the C of E is pretty irrelevant to the vast majority of voters
