CNN Money is Wrong Again

CNN Money, in the above link, is speculating whether it is the US consumer that will be paying higher prices, or Corporate America who will accept lower profit margins.

What do you think?

My little dumplings will remember the blood feud Econo-Girl has going on with CNN Money. Their business coverage is one dimensional and conventional, all at the same time. Of course, CNN Money committed to nothing, with an analysis of "it could be this, it could be that, and we don't know."

Nor will they hazard a guess it seems.

Econo-Girl is happy to step into the void. Prices will rise on core necessities, increasing the Consumer Price Index and the Producer Price Index. Prices on non-core items will rise slightly but quality compromises will be made to reduce the costs of production/getting it to market.

Dear Blogger,

I recently launched a blog articles site exclusively for bloggers ... built entirely from articles submitted by bloggers.

We all know that the best content on the web is produced by bloggers ... unbiased first hand knowledge, experiences and opinions. Nothing to sell and no hidden agendas!

As a seeker of information or article content, you have access to this vast source of interesting and informative articles. As a contributor, you get the recognition of having your article published and seen by thousands of web users. The pride and satisfaction of seeing your article published in a prestige directory is hard to beat.

Not all of us are gifted with the ability to write to professional standards of grammatical correctness ... as a result, many bloggers don't bother to have their articles published.

We welcome an informal style of writing that matches your personality and fits in with your article content. We welcome articles that are uniquely based on your personal knowledge, experiences and opinions. All we ask is that your articles do not contain vulgar language, incite hatred or generally offensive.

All this is absolutely free ... please come over and have a look at our blog articles directory for yourself.

Best Regards
Emily

So CNN money is worthless as tits on a boar hog huh?

Everyone knows that there is a limit to how much business can trim profit margins. Of course prices will rise.

Also lets not forget the one thing Adam Smith did get right - man is self interested and greedy.

The Lazy One is happy he finally landed the County job. Every year, I get a pay adjustment that is tied into the CPI and inflation. Of course, property tax increases pay for my pay raise every year, so who knows if I am really getting a deal here.

What your getting is security. Not wealth, but security. That's worth a lot.
