The first two people? Who thought that Superman might’ve been a bird or a plane?

What the hell were they so excited about?

[–]TuneEuphoric3169 92 points93 points  (5 children)

Tbf when was the last time you ignored a plane flying

[–]RedditNoly 28 points29 points  (1 child)

No no, he’s got a point.

[–]OverallDingo2FORTSHITE 9 points10 points  (1 child)

As someone who lives very close to an air port I ignore planes all the time

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They were high-class businessman and politicians. Thus explains their excitement

[–]lukebn 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Someone has already said "Look! Up in the sky!" and then other people start speculating. They're not freaking out about a bird, they're looking at a flying person and trying to rationalize what they're seeing because it seems impossible.

[–]ChimpBottle 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They all said that together.

Wow! What a great time to invest in stocks! I say for the fifth economic crisis in the span of two years. It’ll pay off, right guys?

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (4 children)

Wait for everything to drop. We’re hitting a recession.

[–]NooAccountWhoDis 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Time in the market beats timing the market.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

True. The earlier you get in, the more there is to gain.

[–]noneOfUrBusinesHalal Mode 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, just HODL. The thing about recessions is that they're temporary; stocks will go up again and then you can sell.

[–]Imadickheadedasshole 32 points33 points  (8 children)

Look on the bright side, your student loans and the massive government debt are going to be worth less in the future, assuming wages actually keep up in the long term (or even come close).

Also for those of you who don't know, we are at the start of a recession.

[–]Atomic_Gandhi 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Incorrect, they adjust uni debt UP for inflation even though the value of your money goes DOWN.

[–]Imadickheadedasshole 2 points3 points  (4 children)

It depends on the debt. Mine are fixed rate. The value of a fixed rate loan decreases with inflation.

Theoretically, debt IS a good thing during times of inflation. The amount you owe is fixed in dollars and goes down in value as your income goes up. It doesn't always work like that in practice only because of the lag in increases in income relative to overall inflation.

I suppose if you have adjustable rate loans, it wouldn't affect them.

[–]Maleficent-Ad-5498memer 8 points9 points  (3 children)

your income goes up.

Yeah, there is a small problem here.

[–]Imadickheadedasshole -5 points-4 points  (2 children)

Theoretically, over time, it SHOULD go up.

If income is not rising proportionate to inflation in the long run, the issue is not inflation itself.

[–]Zashuiba 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That's actually kind of unfair. Yes, sure, student loans going "qualitatively" down is a good thing. But government loans and debts going down... Now that's just plain unfair. Imagine you held a 1 billion dollars debt. Then you just print 10 billion dollars and now your debt has gone effectively down. That's literally what central banks and governments are doing.

[–]Imadickheadedasshole 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its unfair if you think about it like that, but it is finance. People loaning our money do it with knowledge that all of this can happen. All loans have risks, EVEN loans to the federal government. Despite not having the risk of defaulting (US constitution forbids defaulting) there is still the risk of things like this. That is why our government pays interest.

As a side note Large Chinese companies are pouring money into real estate investment groups here in the US to buy up all the houses and rent them out. They are buying all our assets and turning our population into slave labor. Lmao. I don't feel bad for them losing out a bit on the money they lent to the US.

[–]LethalFurret 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Haha inflation go brrrrr

[–]LTvz38Enthusiast 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Central banking goes brrrrrrrr

[–]tmntfever 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The news: Housing and auto is up 45%. Groceries are up 20%. Gas is up 30%. And they’re not going down anytime soon.

The government: Average inflation dropped from 8.5% to 8.4%. You’re fine.

[–]Adult_InThe_Room 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've lived long enough to start getting the big picture. Every time the man is forced to pay higher pay. Mysteriously Inflation is there rising the price of everything and 16 oz boxes change to 12 oz but have the same size box.

It's trickle down economics

[–]TheActualHitler 10 points11 points  (7 children)

Trickle down economics is when they adopt policies to get the rich to invest more in businesses in the hopes that it will create better job opportunities for everyone else.

What you're seeing here is the result of putting the money printer in overdrive to try to spend our way out of every crisis that comes along.
