The Burning Platform
Our local foodbank has reported they have provided double the amount of food to people in 2020 versus 2019. But the Dow hit 30,000 this week so everything must be good. Over 150,000 small businesses have shut their doors forever. But Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, Costco and Home Depot are reporting record profits and all-time high stock prices. Over 111 million working age Americans aren’t working. But the BLS government drones tell me only 11 million are unemployed. The beauty of meaningless data.
What are you seeing and experiencing in your own town or city?
Are small businesses surviving the totalitarian dictates of your governors?
Are you planning on shopping more or less (if you are shopping) for the upcoming Christmas season?
