Responses to this are pretty wild. Folks, FRED isn't "The Fed". It's an (invaluable) database maintained by one of the regional Feds; its blog is meant to provide interesting notes on a variety of topics using that database. But these days everything is political ... https://t.co/kvZmt9Jqip

I didn't know that Atlanta permits *loaded guns* in *the airport*. Not inside security, so I guess it's mostly OK to transfer there. But wow https://t.co/YkfIi9qAq3

Do we want to slow the whole economy because bottlenecks are causing some prices to rise? https://t.co/zyeliGRjFk

With Kevin McCarthy blaming Biden for labor shortages, a question: have any of the people who blamed enhanced unemployment benefits for labor shortage conceded that they were wrong?

Seeing some news stories leading with "CBO says BBB will raise deficit" then acknowledging that it's bc CBO is probably underestimating revenue gains from a stronger IRS. Which is true but kind of misses the bigger point: $160 billion is tiny 1/

@paulkrugman
So basically CBO says BBB is AOK. Paid for within margin of error — not that pay-fors are important when real interest rates are negative and you're investing in the future. Fiscal "responsibility" is no reason to vote against this.

Need to guard against wishful thinking, but there do seem to be straws in the wind suggesting that supply-chain issues are getting less serious. Here's the Baltic Dry Index of shipping costs 1/

Some further thoughts on inflation and what to do next. Inflation has of course come in much higher than Team Transitory predicted — the Fed was predicting only 2.4% PCE growth as late as March. So the inflation worriers have in a way been vindicated, but ... 1/

Sometimes you want to keep the punch bowl available. @PaulKrugman on how the thinking on interest rates has evolved. https://t.co/xU39TMHj70

I usually wouldn't comment on a N=8 scatterplot, but this particular example turns out to be very useful pedagogically, illustrating the impact of a single, *high leverage*, observation can have on the fitted regression slope. Inclusion of US (just 1 data point) flips the sign. https://t.co/sTZjouw3on

Although I am not sure I am on board yet for Paul’s mea culpa, ask yourself how many commentators you ever see acknowledging potential error in the first place. Precious few.

US Retail Sales hit another all-time high while Consumer Sentiment is at its lowest level in 10 years. Watch what they do, not what they say.

Republicans feel worse about the economy today than they did in March 2009. I know someone is going to accuse me of being "out of touch" but I mean, come on.

Why does the trucking industry have such a hard time retaining drivers? How many people want to have a career that involves waiting in a 600-person line to take a shower. https://t.co/S3fXVJbz65

The CUNY Graduate Center & the Stone Center tackle science fiction. It was a fantastic (not literally) discussion of world-building, imagination, and more. (@paulkrugman described it as "Two creative people talking to three nerds"). Stay tuned for video. @GCPresents @stone_lis https://t.co/IjyxrkJm21

The entire economy feels a bit like the moment a big concert or playoff game ends and everyone's trying to get out of the parking lot. "Transitory" can last a maddeningly long time, but the conditions that produce it are, indeed, temporary not strucural.

The peculiar situation Dem leaders now face: some of the same holdouts demanding a CBO score showing Build Back Better is fully paid for are also strong supporters of the infrastructure bill, which CBO says is NOT paid for and adds $256 billion to the debt.

The initial August jobs number of 235K started a wave of economic panic in the press. It was actually 483K, nearly half a million jobs (!). September's 194K, which signaled malaise, is revised to 312K. Revisions are big in 2021, averaging 99K/month; press hasn't managed it well.
