    Nate puts forth the idea that governments may use lockdowns as a way to deal with out of control inflation to prevent losing control.

And all those companies that need 2.2ish due to their operations are either out of business or likely forced to suppress wages to compete. Can’t charge more, difficult to higher wages. Easy to price yourself out of the market rate. Pensions and company lifers didn’t leave because of immigrants.

    Look at large construction, used to be GC/CMT/etc supplies all the support services for the subs. Now, frequently each sub must supply their own support services. Why? Because the “support guys” kept getting undercut by small or 1 person operations. So less cohesion of the underlying backbone of the site, and less wages available for the support guys.

    Consumer prices surge 5.4% annually, most since August 2008

    Inflation is running hotter than economists had forecasted as U.S. consumer prices rose last month at the fastest pace since August 2008.

    A 2x4x8 was down to $7.50 at Homeless Despot yesterday. Still ludicrous, but trending the right way.
    I'd rather make a difference than a dollar.

    30m of 8/3 NMD90 copper wire was about $160 a little over a year ago. (now out of stock so Home Depot shows the old price)
    40m of 8/3 NMD90 copper wire is about $485 this week -- if you can find anyone who has stock.

    The main price increase was at the mills.
    I understand that the mills have lowered their prices, and large subdivision contractors are now getting normal priced lumber,
    but it hasn't worked its way through to lumberyards or retail like Home Depot etc yet.

    Im not buying another stick of dimentional lumber until sanity returns. Im not expecting to see $3.15 2x4s (2018 price) again anytime soon, but I wont build a damned bird house until I see them under $5.00 again.
