The leftist Atlantic actually victim-blamed Americans for the crushing high prices they’re experiencing. In the same breath, the outlet billed President Joe Biden’s ridiculously bad economy as the cat’s pajamas.
If “everyone is miserable,” how could things be “going great”? CBS News reported based on analysis by the Joint Economic Committee Republicans that Americans need an extra $11,400 today “just to afford the basics.” CNBC also recently analyzed that the increases in consumer expenditures constitute “doom spending” as a coping mechanism to deal with the increasingly insurmountable high cost of living, even if it is detrimental to them. But Lowrey attempted to have her cake and eat it too. She attempted to make Biden’s economy seem stellar by pointing to things like wage increases while simultaneously shaming Americans for their persistent economic struggles.

i mean it is in the sense that we elect politicians who allow the Fed to enact insane monetary policy. Both parties are very guilty.
I think mass immigration is leading the false projection that the economy is so great. Everything is so expensive because of demand. Especially housing. More gas lightning.

Misery index anyone?

The Atlantic rates way below Mad Magazine in publishing factual news ... but they are above the Washington Compost and New York Slimes.
They’re not in business to make money, but to spread the propaganda of the left.
Bloomberg News conceded that while Americans did see pay raises since 2020, “much of those gains have been gobbled up by inflation. Some of the fastest wage increases in decades have left the average American largely no better off than before.” [Emphasis added.] Bloomberg News also pointed out Nov. 27 that housing affordability is currently at its “worst on record,” something Lowrey didn’t bother to mention. In addition, credit card debt is also over $1 trillion, another disaster “record” that Lowrey didn’t disclose.
Leftists are so out of touch with reality.
They live in a dream world that bears no resemblance to reality.
