Policeman's eyes will be unevenly. We should say that actually other networks should say that because that is true or special guest here in studio at the nasdaq billionaire investor. Home depot co founder. Ken line goan. He is invited associates chairman and president and nyu langone. So that's that's that's named after you. Health board yeah exactly Thanks who you've been married to for long before you were anything special.

You have a cross section of the economy in a lot of your holdings and you still talk to people at home depot. Well there were opening. Economy is in your view. What hot white-hot white-hot white hot when you look at article in the journal yesterday about used car prices. We haven't had this happened since world. War two believe it or not and everyone says every place shortages of labour shortages of materials. Home depot's biggest problem are the vendor's inability to accommodate on needs. Which in part is driven good part driven by the labor shortages in experiencing so that has implications for inflation for wages for for all these different things that going to try and it has policy needs to be adapted to this reality. And you don't think it is with three and a half trillion. I think you're going to take a white hot fire and threw a five gallon. Gas can on top of it. You're going to have flames so high. It's going to be incredible and one one of the fires out the is going to be great. I'm worried about one thing and one thing along the impact on the little person of inflation. I don't believe this is transitory. I don't believe inflation is temporary once you give somebody a raise and by the way roughly sixty five percent of all cost and business labor once you give somebody a raise. You don't take it back. It's locked in. So i think joe whatever's being missing here they ought to take to to i what i'm worried about. Is this whole effort to get. This done is being done by the concern that the democrats have for what's going to happen in two thousand and twenty to think they're they're vulnerable there everybody's writing how everybody conceives the fact that they're in trouble. I mean you look at you. Look at the immigration problem. You look at the crime problem right now and now you've got this this to me is a bet. The ranch bet. We're going to get into this more. So the trillion to fix bridges to do actual spend it. That's okay yes. But the three and a half trillion. No okay not now. Not now look last year. They did the right thing. I read reflection. They did the exact right thing when they've poured money because we didn't know what congress and we don't know where we were. We didn't know when we'd have a vaccine okay.
