sys, one of my favorite sys things is your bespoke source posting. if joe weisenthal or some crap posted something you for sure would spend time getting a better less macro source.

That's awesome, of course it didn't stand a shot but glad someone is doing something to try to stop corporate greed from contouring our ruin. We won't enforce actual laws on that books like Robinson-Patman, gotta to something.  In that chain Conlon points out that Kroger has -2% gross income growth but even with that they still have a 20% gross profit margin for 2022.

price controls have a pretty long record of failure.

So we should do nothing? The amount of profit that large corporations are racking up on the backs of smaller businesses and a shrinking middle class is tantamount to price fixing. I know you're a proud and devoted capitalist but our not only lack of regulating corporate America, but tilting the scales for them is hardly the model of capitalism this country was founded on. What's the fix, sys?

no it's not.

i don't know what specific problem you want to fix.  if you mean inflation generally, it's bringing supply and demand into balance.  increasing supply is less painful than reducing demand so things like price controls, which tend to freeze or reduce supply make the problem worse.

The study excludes Lula in Brazil and Allende in Chile for left wing. They also somehow don’t include China. Just seems like the study is about how to define populist.

china is many things, but it's nothing at all like populist.  agree that excluding lula seems like cherry-picking the data.  don't know enough about allende to comment.

i'd have to read some history to render a verdict, but i don't think it's terribly necessary to the judgement that from at least deng on, china has not been populist.
