The Brandon economy is in horrible shape and projections are for worse.
We reported this morning on the potential inflation bomb coming due to this Administration’s policies. To offset inflation, the only answer that has historically worked is to increase rates above the rate of inflation. That would mean increasing rates at least 10% since current rates are near zero and inflation is at 10%.
In addition, experts are pointing out that fertilizer prices are at all time highs. This will impact the price of food and inflation, of course.

The dollar is facing downward pressure as countries like Saudi Arabia begin talks with China about using the Yuan as their currency for trade. This will hurt the dollar immensely forcing up inflation further. Zerohedge reports:
China’s importance to Saudi Arabia as an export market has risen in parallel with the Kingdom’s dependence on Chinese imports and investment; but, as Goldman notes, the increased frequency of use of financial sanctions by the United States as a foreign policy tool is arguably creating an incentive for third countries to diversify away from a perceived over-reliance on Dollar-denominated trade.
Relations between Saudi and the United States have also been on a downward trajectory since the start of this century. A long series of policy differences (from the invasion of Iraq to the potentially imminent revival of the JCPOA with Iran) and diminished US foreign policy interests in the region are leading Riyadh to seek political and security alliances with other world powers, including the Chinese.
All this is leading to warnings of trading house collapses. What a mess Brandon has the US in now after only a year of his policies.

Hold on tight.
