    For sure

    16 months ago the house next door to me sold for $330
    One month ago it sold for $415
    The person living there made more on the house than they did working 2000 hours at their job

    The FED's masterpiece economy.

    Many say they had their best year ever in the stock market during the COVID shutdown.

    Now most working folks can't afford to buy a home.

    Jerome Powell killed the American Dream.

    Bunch a Jackarses!

    3 months ago I sold my house for 330k, which was 90k more then I paid 3 yrs prior. Now here 3 months later it sold again for 350k. I guess I should have kept it for a few more months!

    There is a solid case for ending the FED or reforming them. Did you see this week they have all been trading bonds on insider info? Many bought bonds that that the FED ended up buying. Jerome Powell I believe owned muni's from Illinois that the FED bought at Par (Illinois muni's are the highest risk, Illinois finances are a train wreck).

    Nothing will be done imo. They are so third world banana republic at this point, they have truly enriched an entrenched financial elite. The fox has taken over the henhouse.

    Ridiculous.
