I wouldn't put much stock in NPR since they are funded by the Government and are a mouthpiece for the Democrat party. I don't like fact checkers either but there are plenty of articles blasting the claims that you reference. Most from left leaning outlets.

I’ve had nothing to do with the commentary on an NPR fellow interview, besides give snark to posters who can’t do a simple Google search to find it. You wanting to make some attack on NPR is expected.

Here’s an actual link, with data, from the CBO on the deficit numbers.

I should be skeptical of NPR and so should you since Nancy Pelosi shoved 150 million dollars worth of pork into a COVID relief package for them.

Reckless spending is a problem and as jimmy edited... Republicans are even more drunk on government spending (subsidies, bailouts included).  Both parties love to throw the prior administration under the bus (fair) but the problem is both parties are driving the bus over a cliff they are just arguing how fast they should drive.

this is bothsider nonsense.

Here at Politifact we’re going to take a quote that is true, “6.5 million jobs in one year is the most ever created” and we’re going to rate this half-true because if we decide that Joe used the phrase “percentage wise instead of raw numbers” it would be wrong.
 

“If he did in fact say that, it’s be a half truth. He didn’t actually do that though, but we’re still treating it as a half truth.”

Regardless, back to my original point, Joe Biden didn't "single handedly" create any jobs. The best thing he could have done was just get out of the way and let the economy recover after preventing, removing any and all lock downs.

there's basically no evidence that yanking enhanced unemployment forced people back into the labor pool.  you exclaiming otherwise is just wishcasting.

no, you actually have to assist the economy along.  it doesn't just magically improve itself.  your policies lead to lost decades.  we tried this shit over and over again throughout history until fairly recently.  also, i thought y'all were for federalism.

No by doing everything he did with getting vaccines out to everyone, including mandates, he got people back to work faster than ever imagined. He is single-handedly responsible and you need to buy some ice cream today.

Not only is there no evidence, there's evidence that it failed to get people back to work and hurt local economies:

Quote

States that withdrew early from federal unemployment programs pushed few people back to work and fueled a nearly $2 billion cut in household spending, potentially hurting their local economies, according to new research.

Twenty-six state governors — all Republican, except one — opted out of the pandemic-era programs several weeks before their official expiration on Labor Day. Enhanced benefits were keeping the unemployed from looking for jobs and fueling a labor shortage, they claimed.

That bet seems to have had a limited payoff so far, according to a paper authored by economists and researchers at Columbia University, Harvard University, the University of Massachusetts Amherst and the University of Toronto. The research was published Friday.

The data suggests unemployment benefits aren’t playing a big role in hiring challenges and that other factors are having a larger impact — a similar thrust to other recent research analyzing the policy decisions.

The new paper uses anonymized bank-account data from financial services company Earnin to track 18,648 individuals who were receiving unemployment benefits in late April. Researchers compared individuals in 19 states that withdrew federal benefits in June against those in the 23 states that kept them intact.

States that ended federal benefits early saw larger job gains among the unemployed: Their employment jumped 4.4 percentage points relative to jobless individuals in states that kept benefits flowing, according to the paper, which analyzes data through the first week of August.

However, that translates to just 1 in 8 unemployed individuals in the “cutoff states” who found a job in that time period. The majority, 7 out of 8, didn’t find a new job.

“Yes, there was an uptick [in employment],” University of Massachusetts Amherst economics professor Arindrajit Dube said. “Most people lost benefits and weren’t able to find jobs.”

Dube co-authored the research paper.

The employment dynamic — a loss of benefits without resulting job income for most people — led households to cut their weekly spending by 20%, according to the paper. As a result, economies of the cutoff states saw a reduction of nearly $2 billion in consumer spending from June through the first week of August.

“They turned down federal transfers and that money didn’t come back into the state [from new job income],” University of Toronto assistant professor Michael Stepner said. He also co-authored the paper.

A 20% spending cut amounts to a big reduction in quality of life for these households, which are largely lower-income, Stepner said.

The governor’s offices in Alabama, Nebraska, New Hampshire and Utah — a subset of the states — didn’t return CNBC’s request for comment on the policies.

“We have announced the end date of our state of emergency, there are no industry shutdowns, and daycares are operating with no restrictions,” Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said in May when announcing the withdrawal. “Vaccinations are available for all adults. Alabama is giving the federal government our 30-day notice that it’s time to get back to work.”

The research findings come as U.S. job openings broke a record in June, while the economy remains nearly 6 million jobs below its pre-pandemic level. Retail sales nationwide fell more than expected last month amid renewed Covid-19 fears.

The Biden administration is encouraging states with high unemployment rates to use federal funds provided by the American Rescue Plan to keep benefits flowing past Sept. 6.

Most job growth in the withdrawing states wasn’t due to the loss of a $300 weekly supplement, as may have been expected, Dube said. Instead, it was largely due to workers like the self-employed and long-term unemployed who lost their aid entirely since they’re ineligible for traditional state benefits.

Relative differences in the states’ economies also don’t seem to account for the research results, Dube and Stepner said. And a spike in job growth is unlikely in coming weeks, since the pace of hiring in the cutoff states had plateaued by mid-July, they said.

The research results suggest enhanced unemployment benefits are a small-but-incomplete explanation for hiring challenges, they said.

“There is a gap in the labor market,” Stepner said. “There are lots of open jobs, below-average labor force participation, and yet these open jobs are not being filled.

“I think it’s an open question [as to why],” he added. “I don’t think any labor economist has a clear explanation.”

Economists point to ongoing Covid health concerns and continued challenges posed by caregiving responsibilities as other possible factors.

Workers may also expect more pay, benefits and flexibility from a prospective employer. Stimulus checks and other pandemic aid may have provided a financial cushion so workers feel they can be more selective when looking for a new job.

I guess we can't trust Longhornlove, given that he's either woefully ill-informed or a liar.

I never specifically referenced him/her being wrong about reduced deficit, go back and read. I do find it highly suspect that you can spend your way into deficit reduction though, as we all should. Both parties have played their part in spending way too much. The possible reduction as mentioned can be mostly contributed to COVID relief spending coming to an end.

how did federal govt debt change from Jan 2017 to Jan 2021?

NPR had on a fellow who studied this and his estimation is that the rates of inflation due to labor increase is about 8% of the total inflation.  The mass majority of it is due to corporations seeking higher profits (54%).   This certainly seems like an opportunity for some Teddy Roosevelt like asskickings.

Thank you for that correction. So if the supply chains were a convenient excuse and companies could just raise their prices, why did they wait until they had an excuse? Or, what pressure will they face to lower prices? It sounds like many sectors of our economy are effectively monopolized. Am i missing something?

i think they waited until experience told them that raising prices wasn't going to result in losses. so long as everyone keeps paddling in that direction the higher prices can be maintained.  and it's less likely that you have competitor decide "fuck it, i'm out, we're going back to low margins" when there's fewer competitors in the marketplace (see: meatpacking)

I do not go around stating, "As a Christian.." like so many of your compatriots do before saying something ignorant and hateful.  I also am not trying to force my beliefs on whole swaths of the population like you and your ilk have tried to do.  I also have not committed or supported insurrection.  Those are all statements that either of you cannot say without lying.  Yeah, real good Christians the two of you are.  Remember, let those who are without sin cast the first stone.  

FYI, if you have to tell people how much of a Christian you are, how generous you are, how you are not racist, a homophobe, or a misogynist, etc.., then chances are likely you are not what you profess to be.

Everyone here acted like our inflation was inline with the rest of the world. We’re above all similar nations. 
 

 

 

The Trump led pandemic response was the initial inflationary impulse. It’s been aided by supply issues related to Covid and Ukraine. It was also helped by spending since Biden was elected. Janet Yellen herself referenced the American rescue Plan playing a part passed in March 2021. Thank you baby Jesus for Manchin shitting on Build Back Better. He was proven right that inflation was a concern. It’s only worsened since then. 
 


Funny, I’ve been told multiple times that commodity prices have nothing to do with inflation on the inflation thread.

M2 money growth exploded with the pandemic response and has remained well above the pre 2020 trend since.  That has more to do with inflation than oil.

 

In summary, both Trump and Biden have been a part of the inflation we’re experiencing, but Biden is the one currently in power. He also advocated for extra spending that if passed would’ve exacerbated it. All while denying it was a problem until polling told him otherwise. 

 I remember you all over the Trump thread talking about printing money deficit spending etc. etc. and talking about how terrible it was when he was in charge

Really?  I pay a larger percent of my income in taxes than Elon Musk does.  And more than likely, that CFO, when he exercises those options, will probably pay a lower percentage of his wages than those 100k workers thanks to SALT caps and other bullshit that the 2018 Trump tax cuts put into place.
