Joe Biden’s economy is creating such a disaster for Americans that even Jeff Bezos, who is worth a hundred billion dollars or so, is warning consumers about not making big purchases.
The government confirmed on Tuesday that that the producer price index rose 0.2% in October, and was 8% over the year in October compared to September’s 8.4%.
But CNBC gaslighted readers on the subject, claiming that since the new inflation was “less than expected,” it was because “inflation eases.”
The report noted the PPI is the prices companies get for finished goods in the marketplace.
The report said, “Excluding food, energy and trade services, the index also rose 0.2% on the month and 5.4% on the year. Excluding just food and energy, the index was flat on the month and up 6.7% on the year.”
It reported energy costs were up 2.7% for the month, and food was up 0.5%.

The report said,” The index is generally considered a good leading indicator for inflation as it gauges pipeline prices that eventually work their way into the marketplace. PPI differs from the more widely followed consumer price index as the former measures the prices that producers receive at the wholesale level while CPI reflects what consumers actually pay.”
CNN had reported on Bezos’ warning.
Consumers – and businesses – “should consider postponing large purchases in the coming months as the global economy contends with a downturn and faces a possible recession,” the report said he warned.
“Bezos urged people to put off expenditures for big-ticket items such as new cars, televisions and appliances, noting that delaying big purchases is the surest way to keep some ‘dry powder’ in the event of a prolonged economic downturn. Meanwhile, small businesses may want to avoid making large capital expenditures or acquisitions during this uncertain time, Bezos added.”
He should know. The New York Times reported this week that his company, Amazon, plans to slash its workforce soon, laying off 10,000 workers just as the nation moves into what normally is a prosperous time of year for businesses – the Christmas season.
Amazon already has warned its sales for the final three months of the year to be way below Wall Street expectations.
The company’s stock already is down 40% on surging prices and changing customer behavior.
“Take some risk off the table. Just a little bit of risk reduction could make the difference,” he said.
A report in Axios noted the steep decline in the tech industry.
In addition to Amazon’s pending layoffs, Facebook already has cut 13,000 jobs and Twitter several thousand more.
The report suggested Big Tech layoffs during this month could reach more than 32,000.
For the year, it’s already about 120,000.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?
Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
