Would one of you economists tell me where we’re headed here?
I was with my wife at a car dealership in suburban Cleveland Saturday afternoon and it felt like we’d walked into Grand Central Station during rush hour. If the Feds had intentions of raising rates to stop consumers from hitching a ride to the debt highway, it’s not working. Or these people have tons of cash laying around ready to spend on cars.
Salesmen were running around doing their best to manage two customers at a time. They’d send out one couple to test drive and turn their attention to another potential buyer. It was so crazy at this particular dealership that the car we were there to drive was just returning from a test drive and our salesman told us that those people were seriously considering buying the Honda. Then, as we were about to test drive a comparable Honda, we were told the first one had sold.
Then, no it hadn’t. “My coworker is an idiot,” our sales guy said.
So we went out and drove another Honda. We were being the smart consumers. Make sure we were making the right decision. Take time to talk this through.
Upon returning, we’d decided to buy the first Honda.
Sales guy looks at me and says, “I have bad news, it’s sold.” The first couple took it. Game over.
Meanwhile, there were 30 other people (not all Boomers blowing through their 401ks & company pensions) in that shop looking and buying. Customers were in and out of the finance guy’s office. It was a circus. I’m talking non-stop action for the hour-plus we were there.
With our tails between our legs, we returned home still on the hunt for a car and the feeling that Fed chairman Jerome Powell has his work cut out for him as America shows zero sign of slowing its spending — on crippling interest rates.
In Monday’s Washington Post, the editorial board ran an opinion piece titled, “The Powell Federal Reserve hasn’t won the inflation fight yet.”
You don’t say?

• Bob returned home and had his heart ripped out:
Our great southern adventure is in the books. We arrived home last night just before the Bengals/Chiefs kick-off, tired from the 20+ hour return flights, but hopeful for a Bengals victory. Lots to be said about the game, but if you have the ball on your own 35 and a minute on the clock, you have to get it done if you want to be…
