US Household debt

Households increased debt during the third quarter at the fastest pace in 15 years due to hefty increases in credit card usage and mortgage balances.


Total debt increased by 2.2% from the previous quarter and 8.3% from a year ago.


Debt has surged over the past year due to inflation running near its highest pace in more than 40 years and amid rising interest rates and strong consumer demand.

Number of millionaires by country and regio

#wealth


According to Credit Suisse estimates, the number of global millionaires will exceed 87 million in 2026, i.e. a rise of 25 million from 2021.


This rapid rise reflects in part the fact that higher inflation will make it easier to pass the million US dollar threshold. While millionaire numbers in lower-income countries are still far below the levels in the United States or Europe, the numbers are expected to accelerate in the next five years.

"Gross Domestic Product"

With second-quarter GDP data due out Thursday, the question of whether the economy is in recession will be on everyone’s mind.


The economy stands at least a fair a chance of hitting the rule-of-thumb recession definition of two consecutive quarters with negative GDP readings.


The last two recessions were in 2020 and 2008-2009, as annotated in the chart above.


Should inflation stay at high levels, that then will trigger the biggest recession catalyst of all, namely Federal Reserve interest rate hikes.


Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said “we just don’t have” conditions consistent with a recession.

Inflation had been named by an average of 1% of Americans between 1990 and 2021.

"Discussion of Inflation by Political Lean"

Discussion of inflation by outlets/sites/authors of all political orientations has increased. However, the Far Right media and Slightly Right media have increased their coverage of inflation more than the Far Left and Slightly Left, especially since the turn of 2021 when President Biden took office.


At its peak in March 2022, the Far Right was talking about inflation 2.4 times the rate they were Dec 2020-Feb-2021 while the Far Left was talking about inflation 1.5 times the rate they were in Dec 2020-Feb-2021. The period Dec 2020-Feb-2021 was chosen as the base because it’s roughly half before and half after Biden’s inauguration.

"Discussion of Wages & Jobs by Political Lean"

More positive economic terms like “employment,” “jobs,” “raises,” and “wages” were actually talked about disproportionately less frequently by the Far Left in June, July, and August of 2021, but disproportionately more since December 2021. This while all other political orientations talked about it less than they did Dec 2020-Feb-2021.


Despite how critical inflation and unemployment are - we’re experiencing the highest inflation in 40 years and we’re just 10 basis points above the lowest unemployment in 50 years - the manner in which outlets with different political orientations talk about the economy changes over time. The data suggests that outlets aligned with the party in power focus on the positives yet minimize the negatives while those not aligned with the party in power do the opposite.
