Bizarro World Episode 135: Profound Effects
We go over this week’s stock market selloff because it was the “worst” one in six months. But the Evergrande and global contagion stuff is overblown. We discuss why the stock market is poised to inflate to new highs. The inflation the government says doesn’t exist is everywhere. And so are refugees and homeless. Funny how that works. Why AOC’s ‘tax the rich’ stunt and conservative hand-wringing over Afghanistan are both partisan stunts to be ignored. Focus instead on that chicken breast you just ate, which has this lovely new disease.
