Interesting

I enjoyed the most recent podcast. I believe our economy is in trouble. Money is fuel and we have been pouring gasoline on this fire for a long time. The ten year bond rate will need to exceed the inflation rate for at least a quarter before we can move to needed recession.

The middle class is the core muscle group of our economy and democracy. Scott is right the only real solution is to raise the minimum wage to inflation adjusted parity.

And yeah Elon Musk is trying to get out of the deal.

Thanks

Isn’t Kara the best in everything

Kara knows every famous person, has dinner with every famous person and they’re all her best friends. She’s the best mother has the best kids and she gives us the best advice: be a narcissist.

Podcast is boring and dull without thoughtful Scott.

Love!

I look forward to it every week. Prof G is hilarious and I can’t wait to get his take on the weeks events. Kara is an expert at manning the ship and keeping Scott on topic. Excellent guests. Well done!
