Today, I cover:
1) National: Increased costs of oil and gas (see FRED figure below) and health insurance, whether there's a relationship between ongoing inflation and increased unemployment, and what's going on with the trade deficit and tariffs (see second figure below);
2) Iowa: How conservative state budgeting is helping Iowa to thrive and increase competition (the chart below shows Iowa ranks 38th for its business tax climate but this is likely to improve from recent reforms), and there are lessons for why all states need responsible budgeting;
3) Other: My most recent op-eds discussing unemployment, why the latest GDP numbers suggest fiscal insolvency, and a sneak peek of my upcoming podcast episode with Dr. Brian Blase from Paragon Health Institute.
