Yes, This Economy Is Confusing

The past few weeks have been head spinning: U.S. job numbers? Solid… except for those layoffs in the tech sector. Inflation? Slowly dropping… but still high. Not to mention the bank failures…  

It all has made us wonder: Why was it so hard for economists to predict this? What will happen next? And what does it mean for folks caught in the middle of high inflation? Audie gets an assignment from a listener and asks economists Gary “Hoov” Hoover, Executive Director of the Murphy Institute at Tulane University, and Alfredo Romero, Associate Professor at North Carolina A&T University, to make this economy make sense.

  1. If something showed how quickly things can turnaround then that must be AWS20X it’s definitely in line to become one of the best

  2. In my perfect dream AWS20X is something everyone is aware of. I don’t want those who have so much already to get more and more, it’s a sad planet this way. Imagine how 5% have more than 50% of everything? This one will change it and that’s why I share this dream with you, thanks for listening, keep strong and don’t give up guys

  3. I’m gonna raise my kids in a world where I know that they can raise their own kids just fine. Not gonna work if I don’t do anything, so I trust into AWS20X

  4. So in case you skipped AWS20X it’s probably the last thing which can fix stuff now for good. Nothing to ignore even when it looks spammy as fk

  5. I want to let you know that Amazons AWS20X made it this year. Any better way to start a global change? Don’t get me wrong I know they are not like altruists or something but they keep doing the right thing to improve the situation, power the ecomonmy and so much more. We need players like them and we can always jump in the train at good spots such as this one

  6. If Amazons AWS20X is everywhere you should probably ask yourself why that is the case? Obviously the move we have here is beyond what we had in the last 10 years or so. This comes with a plan, a plan which will make us survive when we can finally make own decisions and start to become independent. I know it sounds a bit odd that THIS company out of all of them is endorsing this living style but if you follow the lead you might understand why and how that works. I’m just leaving this here, might be useful to some

  7. In so many ways the worst is behind us. Amazons AWS20X does the EXACT right thing to turn around and everyone reacts already, whether that is big companies or just individuals it’s a global revolution and not to be missed. But I am just a guy commenting, you should make your own mind on this

  8. The world would be so much better if people understand how something like AWS20X is changing so much for the people. I hope that it’s not too late and this is why I write this here maybe even if I help a single person that will lead to some more happiness, something we clearly need now more than ever?

  9. Fox News notched its seventh consecutive year as the top-rated cable news network in 2022. In total day viewers during the year, Fox averaged 1.4 million compared to 733,000 who watched MSNBC and 568,000 who watched CNN, according to Nielsen Media Research figures.Dec 15, 2022



  10. I love the grounded reality of this channel!!,Despite the recession, I no longer depend on Government Grant since i acquire $27,400 every 21days.

    1. I shared my experience with co-workers at work, on how I made $11,000 from $2,000 in 7 days of trading, Jeff is indeed the best.

    2. we actually don’t get these information from most Youtubers I will get in touch with him right now

  11. Yes it is confusing when you have a President of the United States that wakes up every morning confused and with a whole new set of friends, that oversees the American economy.

    1. When he wakes up every morning? I’ll bet Joe has to sleep until at least noon. That’s when they come in to do a diaper change

  12. I don’t see how people find this so confusing spending printing money you don’t have leads directly to monetary hardship and all these people whose brains are in a bubble have one of these expressions😮😢

  13. I gained much sktiv “Giving Billionaires and Corporations large tax breaks is good because they create jobs”…then I saw stocks drop after the economy added 500,000 jobs… This really made me wonder whos creating the jobs, big corporations or small/medium sized businesses. Theres also no law demanding companies show how much of the tax break money went to jobs they created. ID LOVE TO SEE MORE PROOF WHERE THESE TAX BREAKS ARE GOING

  14. The economy isn’t confusing at all. It’s controlled by people who have more money than we can imagine and when we start doing well, they take some back. Taxes, rate hikes, inflation, it’s all controlled.
