🦃 ‘It’s been crazy,’ turkey shortages, supply chain issues impacting thanksgiving meals: IRI reports that cranberry sauce is 20 percent out of stock and yams and sweet potatoes are a quarter out of stock.


💰 IRS says it's boosting tax brackets due to faster inflation: The IRS said the income thresholds for federal tax brackets will be higher in 2022, reflecting the faster pace of inflation. That means a married couple will need to earn almost $20,000 more next year to enter the top tax bracket, with the tax rate set to remain at 37%.

🚀🚀🚀 I know it doesn't feel like it, but: Productivity is offseting wage gains. Wage gains are a reset, and supply-chain price increases are temporary; productivity gains, on the other hand, will persist forever. That is a deflationary, not inflationary result.  Everything will get better.  Much, much better very soon.  We're on a rocketship of recovery anytime now.


🎁 In the supply chain battle of 2021, small businesses are losing out to Walmart and Amazon: Independent retailers are getting squeezed out as suppliers, factories and freight companies prioritize national brands: ‘We’re at the whim of a broken supply chain.’


🚘 Vintage cars are chic again: Enthusiasm for vintage cars has emerged at a time when microchip shortages have fueled bidding wars for new and used contemporary vehicles.


💵 The truth about those dollar stores: Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, and others offer low prices but also raise concern in communities that feel choked by them
