Is a Recession on the way or is a Recession already here? That is the big question the citizens, the folk, the Economist’s, and Americans in general, are all asking. Terry responded to this saying “I think we’re in a recession now, Steve, one fascinating way to look at this is that the Google search for the word Recession has hit the highest mark it’s ever had in the history of those search results.”
Gruber asked Terry “How do we calculate Inflation? The government gives us a number that is lower than what it would really be, because I’m told the actual inflation rate is like 14%. Does that square with your understanding?” Sawchuk then responded with: “Yeah, they did change the numbers and they get to pick and choose what goes into the basket of what gets measured. I don’t think anybody has any illusions about the fact that they’re paying well more than 10%, even in some cases, not, you just look at specific things. I mean, gas is up 100% from where it was when Trump was in office, you look at other forms of energy, it’s up considerably, the price of a used car. At one point, prices of used cars were higher than the prices of new cars, right? So depending on when you look at it, inflation could be as high as 50%. It just depends on what you’re buying. Across the board, it is absolutely higher than what they’re telling us.”
