#4 In many industries where jab mandates exist, there are large numbers of workers who are being fired and/or are quitting. Much of this is leading to work shortages too.

#5 As prices to cattle ranchers drop prices in grocery stores rise. Wonder why?

#6 ^ cost of transport i.e. gas prices mainly.

So unbelievably stupid of this incompetent administration to reverse Trump's embrace of fracking and Keystone.

Lower energy costs are the most effective and efficient stimulus program imaginable, and Biden the Drooling Moron threw it all away.

#7 #6 This administration reminds me of a gambler who keeps losing but continues anyway.

#8 And a personal point, not just higher prices, but lower portions and product sizes. Check the net weight/quantity on almost any staple over the past couple of years and you will see 3-5% decreases or more. Or my favorite, shortened best by dates!

#12 By the looks of things, she not only defeated it, but devoured the carcass. Once upon a time, America was famous for growing state of the art women.

#15 #8 Yes, Look at Little Debbie how the portion sizes have been reduced. Then to have water expire.

Then China currently has a worker shortage as does Germany. Skills are lacking. I believe this is a concerted effort to drive AI. Replace humans. In all industry. Yes, healthcare, all manufacturing and service industries.

#16 I don't think transport prices are most of it. Right now here in east Tennessee on-the-hoof price for a 600 to 700 pound steer is a bit over 30 cents a pound. Ground beef is about 5 bucks a pound

Bingo. Labor doesn't "scale" per sillycon valley-speak. Besides, they're deplorable.

So EBI for the proles.
