You mean landlords specifically or just non workers like, oh I don't know, pensioners?

 

I don't believe that pensioners should have to live off savings.  They should get a pension from the state (or better, from their employers) that allows them to live in dignity.

But the pension is paid for by assets in the fund so same same...  Still not seeing the point of your original post.

Rentiers like investors or, oh I don't know, Traders?

A rentier, you know, someone who lives off high interest rates or landed property.  They extract money by virtue of having money, and prevent money being used for productive things.

Sounds like the Fed... 😝

Although your use of the phrase High interest rates is pejorative, surely it is just interest...  Been the case since the dawn of money anyway, high or not, so what are you advocating exactly?

Free and easy money.  The worst thing is people having nothing to do, buildings being empty, machinery unused, and everyone feeling miserable.

On that at least we can agree.  And the new economy titans in the shape of Suckerberg (sic) thinks paying everyone basic is a good idea...  Just so he can hold on to his!

So UK wages are back at pre "crisis" (ha they will run out of superlatives for the coming storm!) levels.  And yet retail is struggling and no one can afford to buy a home.  HSBC are the latest mega firm to announce job cuts, I wonder if it has anything to do with rising wages...  Of just the fact that banks can't make any money within a ZIRP/NIRP environment...  Coronavirus is the blame du jour for missing targets and while the world is going to hell in a handcart a property firm is telling it's staff that they cannot expense meat in meals.  Never mind the meek inheriting the Earth now it is the vegans..  "Head of values team"?  No wonder these firms can't make any profit!  The world has officially gone mad, sell everything!

The pain and suffering could be just starting for millions of people.

Although key sectors such as housing have begun to show signs of a rebound, analysts have warned that the mini-boom could go bust once the government’s jobs subsidy programme closes in less than three months’ time and a tax cut expires at the end of March.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead. USDOLLAR (DXY) WEEKLY PRICE CHART – APRIL 28, 2022 {{THE_FUNDAMENTALS_OF_BREAKOUT_TRADING}} What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?   Apr 28, 2022 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Strategist
