  • Economics Explained, it’s a YouTube channel run by an Australian PhD.

    https://youtube.com/c/EconomicsExplained

    The videos are mostly 15 minutes or so, with some longer, like the housing prices video, and he gives some opinions that are flatly non-partisan. He will even preface some comments to say something like here’s the cold, calculating take, but here’s why we don’t necessarily go that route.
    "The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command." George Orwell, 1984

    "One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume." Boromir

      Every business was handed massive amounts of money to ride out the pandemic and come back strong on the backside. Instead, these industries all pocketed their profits and said, not our fault we're coming up short now even though were essential products/services.
      Maybe the Gov't should have made them pay that money back, instead of giving it to them??

        I dunno what the answer is but it is very clear that our government is a complete failure when it comes to basic economics. And it usually all happens as the direct result of the most fucked up Republican laws.

        • The redistribution of money from the middle class taxpayer to the wealthy worked exactly the way it was designed. Government works.

            • I’ve been driving so little these days that I just got my oil changed for the first time since September. It was $112, fully synthetic, up about 30% since last year from the local quick lube place. I had made an appointment for 8AM today, but the shop opener showed up late and looked like he would be another 30 minutes before they’d be ready for my car. I don’t have that kind of time for the wait today.

              • NEW: Karine Jean-Pierre (Biden's Press Secretary) just responded to Jeff Bezos attacking Biden for trying to stop gas price gouging: “It’s not surprising that you think oil and gas companies using market power to reap record profits at the expense of Americans is the way our economy is supposed to work.”

                • So Comey and Andrew McCabe were subjected to a random intensive audits in 2017 and 2019 (not sure who was in which year). 5,000 of 153 million in 2017 and 8,000 of 154 million in 2019.

                  There should definitely be an investigation into why this happened. Sure, rare astronomical events happen, but this is fishier than pelican sh-t.

                    It should be investigated and prosecuted. But who really believes it will? We can't even keep fireworks shooting speeding cars off of our streets.

                        Apparently this is his third set of twins or more. First two may have been conceived with fertility drugs and/or IVF.
