Arguably, though, stagflation had significantly different inputs than what we have now, and what we have now is possibly even closer to the 1929-1930 situation than 2007-2008 was.

Stagflation broke progressivism as a political force in America for 30+ years.
It's making a comeback. Maybe not this year, but soon.

Typical of the boomers, trying to bring back something from the 70s.

We tried ending the war and broadening civil rights in the 60s and you see how far that went.

Wait. Did the boomers do the civil rights stuff or their parents? I thought it was their parents mostly.

I don't get the market rally. 3 million people just went on unemployment. Manufacturing is in recession. Farming is in recession. Hospitality industry is in recession.

Am I not understanding something? Am I missing something?

It’s really high volatility right now, with still a bit of uncertainty, so I wouldn’t read too much into any particular day (esp on the upside)

The unemployment claim stats, while ginormous & unprecedented, were nonetheless expected (as of probably a week ago)

The government has made a commitment to write enough checks to make everybody feel better.
