Summer money’s worth less. Fact. Just is. Nobody’s fault. NIH…summer wallets cause back strain.
Who knew it took that much cash to get through summer vacation and the summer driving season? The NIH has also proved that summer wallets are primarily responsible for the majority of periodic headaches, blurred vision, amnesia, anxiety, pelvic misalignment, and persistent auditory price hallucinations. “Sticker shock” is real Woody. And stuffing 45 $20s in your wallet for a drive to Denver? The NIH says large wallets distort thinking.
You can’t pass a freeway exit before running into a metric. They’re everywhere. While cruising through summer we can ease up on our market discipline. Things get in the way. But help is here, in simple form.
48 million Americans will hit the road this summer and along the way their infotainment systems may just be telling them about inflation, or the price of the stuff propelling most of them. That’s fine. But let’s gain some broader perspective.
Summer money’s a snap. If you vacation you’ll spend. Know what to expect, and in what sort of economy you’re operating. With our simple econ snapshot you can be half asleep and still keep up. You can do most of your monitoring by just listening to radio.
It’s relaxing, when you think about it. There are only so many metrics or measures that the market can throw at us. Economics only goes so far. Really? Well, yes, and here are the big ones to tuck in.

Enjoy Yosemite. You have your base econ read.
All the great information in the world is of no use until incorporated into your research habits. Simplifying a few concepts helps. It’s a cheat sheet. NASA calls them checklists. Metrics matter. Economies change.
When taking in our 1.75% fed funds rate, think Argentina. Argentina’s central bank just raised it’s benchmark interest rate from 27.25% to 30.25%. Argentina defaulted on foreign debt obligations in 2000. They now face hyper-inflation. No easy exit exists for that plague.
Summer money’s like packing the station wagon. You just pack a little awareness and context, along with your credit card.
