Our trains in the US are a global embarrassment. Especially compared to what other countries are accomplishing.

Wow I didn't know about this at all. "Most of the companies involved were convicted in 1949 of conspiracy to monopolize interstate commerce." "Only a handful of U.S. cities, including San Francisco, New Orleans, Newark, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Boston, have surviving legacy rail urban transport systems based on streetcars."

There’s a vastly overlooked factor that’s stoking record inflation: Rich people

Inflation is when prices are going up because there's too much money chasing too few goods. When there's enough goods for everyone, the price stays the same. But when there's not enough goods to satisfy demand, the prices go up as people compete to get what they want. So inflation is caused by 2 things: demand (total amount of money available and desire to spend) and supply (whether sellers can or will make enough stuff to satisfy demand). Inflation is always caused by both, but often favors one more than the other. Now to 2022. The US is experiencing historically high but not crazy inflation. Besides food and oil, which are greatly affected by global events right now, the majority of inflation in the US in 2022 comes from services and high-value items like laptops, cars, and home improvements. Those are the prices that are going up the most. Who's been buying all that stuff? The people who profited from business, stocks, crypto, and rising home prices over the pandemic. They are newly flush with cash and willing to bid up prices in a time where there's not enough stuff for everyone. They don't notice the price increase while lower income people feel it hard. I've heard people say US inflation right now is mainly caused by stimulus checks and child care credits, yet that money was spent long ago and overall contributed a miniscule amount of the money spent in the goods driving inflation. I'm not proposing anything; just noting the situation seems different from how it's presented in the news. I'd love or hear your thoughts on this, inflation, causes, or anything else. Comment below!

Should there be more restrictions on landlords?

Throughout human history, landlords have commonly been a source of suffering. Frequently, big landlords without any restrictions take most of what their residents make, often creating slave-like conditions that trap people in a cycle of uneducated endless poverty. If you've heard of English feudal system with serfs, or American slavery, you already have an idea of what happens when powerful landlords go crazy for money. That type of system has happened historically all over the world, using different names, from Japan to Africa to South America, and is especially common in developing countries. Luckily, in the US, there are huge restrictions on landlords. We don't have anything like that here anymore. However, landlords are getting more wealthy than ever from rising home prices, and their incomes are growing from raising rents on a low income populace that's getting ever poorer. 30% of Americans are now low-income, and nearly all of them rent their home from a landlord. Landlords are getting richer directly off the back of tenants who are getting poorer. Do you think the pendulum has swung too far, and US landlords need more restrictions? Or is it fine the way it is? What has been your experience with landlords? I personally have had pretty decent ones, luckily, but I have heard horror stories.
