For over a decade, and even through COVID-19, financial market traders lived in an upside-down world where terrible news was greeted with frenzied buying activity. Like Pavlov’s dogs, investors were trained to buy every dip because bad news was good news – but in 2022’s second half, it looks like a reversion to reality is afoot.
The media spends plenty of time talking about high gasoline prices, but that’s not the only sign of rampant inflation in the U.S. Skyrocketing electricity bills are also problematic for the economy and for the American middle class, and don’t expect relief anytime soon.
Fed may want an economic slowdown to blunt inflation by lifting interest rates, but a strong USD, recession, and credit market crisis are baked in.

The truth always comes out, sooner or later. In May, Joe Biden praised high gasoline prices as part of an “incredible transition.” At the time, the price of a gallon of gas reached $6 in California. Now, more of Biden’s innermost thoughts are seeping out, and they’re pointing to endless pain at the pump for Americans.
One data point from the Fed’s officialdom has confirmed that the United States is in a technical recession and heading for a potential hard-landing.
Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it. In the Federal Reserve’s case, they wanted 2% inflation, and they finally got it – but they overshot, and the economy and markets are now in a tailspin.
The ruling elites of some Western countries refuse to notice the obvious shift and choose to cling to the shadows of the past.
If Joe Biden’s goal was to promote equality and close the wealth gap in America, he half-succeeded. The wealth gap is widening, so Biden failed miserably on that front. However, there’s some form of equality because people are getting slammed by inflation across the board.
