Kind of shrinkflation. Airlines really have been aggressive with prices and worse amenities

Posted in: Robots and happy workers: Productivity surge helps explain U.S. economy's surprising resilience See in context

Hmmmm. Bit dubious. Manufacturing is less than 30% of the US economy. I think huge government spending and cheap energy are more likely causes of the economic "resilience"

Doesn't matter. Ukraine still clearly on course to win this. Kamalas speech in Munich told it how it is.

And 14th Amendment is also a total red herring. My guess whatever happens the debt continues to go up somehow.

Posted in: Hardliners on both sides threaten to sink deal averting U.S. debt deal See in context

The whole "debt default" mantra is total BS. Tax receipts are more than enough to cover interest payments on the debt. What needs cutting are the myriad useless programs and give aways (student debt relief?) that are in the budget. Debt ceiling continually being raised shows what a Ponzi the US public finances are.

Posted in: Ukraine says counteroffensive delayed; Britain sending cruise missiles to Kyiv See in context

I wonder if they are capable of mounting any kind of offensive. Stalemate seems the most likely option. Until Europe finally tires of supporting this awful conflict.

Posted in: Debt limit fight: Biden meeting with Congress leaders put off until next week as staff talks proceed See in context

The ponzi continues. Just keep borrowing and call it meeting their financial commitments. Trump may be awful but he is right on the fact that America can't keep spending like this. Something has to give.

More tax and spend is not the answer.

The constant need to raise the debt limit shows what a ponzi US government funding is.

Posted in: France faces massive strikes over pension reform See in context

Entitlements were established when people died younger and the ratio of earners to receivers of benefits was more sustainable. Unfortunately in a democracy the ability of the state to fix this is limited. Sad for the retirees , but id]f benefits not addressed then they will end up paying thru the current bout of high inflation.

Posted in: The plan is insane. What we need is to cut tuition fees. See in context

Education subsidies and loan forgiveness plans both have the unforseen consequences of driving the cost of tuition up.

Posted in: Russian shelling hits Ukrainian town; Bakhmut battle rages See in context

Sad but seems Ukraine strategy is failing. Bakhmut appears to have been a disaster for them.

I think that Russian losses are being grossly exaggerated by our media. They have been using artillery and similar to achieve their objectives. Sure they are losing troops, but poor Ukraine losing more and have less manpower reserves to draw on.

we were told Bakhmut was going to be a bloody nose for Russia. That does not appear to be the case.

Shades of Afghanistan just before the collapse there?

Posted in: Ukraine clings to Bakhmut but time may be running out as Russians advance See in context

Sitting in a fortified town like this was never a sensible military strategy. Turned into a meat grinder where Russia could just bombard the place and inflict huge casualties. Sad for Ukraine, but the overwhelming manpower and material advantage the Russians have will finally prevail.

All this money will unfortunately not replace the dead and help Ukraine in this war. Russia appears to have the upper hand and Ukraine will struggle to fend of the coming attacks.
