"A quarter of a $1 million a year or more a third of them have no pad at the end of the month marketplace is Samantha fields reports Living paycheck to paycheck can mean one of two things according to this report the first one is people that manage to pay all the bills but at the end of the month they have nothing left then the other part is obviously those who are struggling to pay their bills And I are at LendingClub says most high income people who live paycheck to paycheck have enough to cover their expenses but not much else One of the advantages that higher income Americans have is they do have more flexibility but they have also taken on a lot more debt Whether that's a mortgage car loans student debt or credit card debt A lot of people assume that folks who make more money are more likely to be financially healthy But our research finds that that's not necessarily the case Megan green is with the nonprofit financial health network When we talk about financial health we're talking about individuals who are able to meet their day to today expenses They're able to save and plan for the future and they're able to pursue a longer term opportunities Inflation she says is making all of that harder for people across the income spectrum I'm Samantha fields for marketplace Time for the marketplace economic pulse Today ray dalio the founder and co chief investment officer of the biggest hedge fund in the world Bridgewater associates and he studies cycles of government borrowing and geopolitics to understand where things might be going and his animated video on the subject now has more than 14 million views on lied Mister Dahlia thanks for joining us again Hey there Now where are you on if a recession is coming early next year Or is it a fool's errand to try to predict those things No it's just mechanics I think we're entering a period of stagflation We can go through the reasons the most important is if the amount of money and credit created to give to people to spend increases by more than the amount of goods and services produced you will have price rises And the way that central banks attempt to get rid of inflation is to take money in credit away from people And that's the dynamic that produces stagflation So I think we've entered an extensive period of stagflation that is not only brought about by the money and credit things that we're talking about but also by the inefficiencies that are being created by this different type of economic allocation The way in the past that resources were allocated was primarily economics Where's the cheapest place to produce it cost effectively Now we're seeing for self protection reasons countries They want to be self sufficient so they'll produce it That means that the quantity of goods and services being produced is also adversely affected And that produces more inflation I mean maybe the inflation we're seeing right now is of a different kind that China reopens after its COVID lockdowns that they fix the microchip shortage soon enough and we can finally buy those cars and it eases the supply backlogs that is driving some of this Yes there are some temporary things but they're really big and exaggerated importance We have other things that are bigger Partially this money and credit thing and partially this geopolitical thing like for example right now you could see the effect of the war Well now imagine that that is carried through with secondary sanctions to China The need for companies who worry about such possibilities having to pick alternative places to produce means that it's not the most efficient ways to produce That lack of efficiency together with the fact that we do have very large deficits And we have to fund those and we have very low real returns which causes the selling of dead instruments in the buying of inflation hedge assets I think those are more important influences than the ones that you're mentioning Ray dalio is the founder and co chief investment officer of Bridgewater associates we're also talking about the country power score index Mister Dahlia thanks for the time on this It's my pleasure good to see you again David Dalio and team also have this new 18 point system the index you refer to to rank the economic social and political health of countries were number one but fading a director's cut of our conversation is streamable from the marketplace website if you miss it on the air today In about an hour and a half the government's hiring and unemployment reports for May or do the forecast is for strong payrolls but 23% lower than April S&P futures.

"I'm Samantha Fields for marketplace. Marketplace Morning Report. Three words that's the call out, Check it out. The U. S Department of Agriculture says whole hog prices were up earlier this year on higher demand as we all started going out again, which makes sense, but AG as you know, if you listen to this program is a global business and an angel just the U. S. Of a that matters. So as we do with all things hog related, we called Brian Duncan He's the vice president of the Illinois Farm Bureau. He raises hogs and farms, corn and soybeans himself as well. Miss Duncan's Cairo's doll. How are you, sir? Good guy. Good to talk to you again. How are you doing? Good to talk to you. Why don't you go ahead and hit that little red button? We'll get this show on the road. I did. I'm ready to go. There you go. Alright. Your step ahead of me. So listen, Let me just jump right in here. The reason we called you was because of a headline we saw in the Washington and the Wall Street Journal the other day. Rather, uh, that goes like this. U. S hog prices sink as China rebuilds heard, and I said to myself, we got to talk to Brian Duncan. Well, I guess I'm your go to on this issue. You are the hug guys. So, so I mean, look, there's a lot to talk about. But first of all the prices you're getting market for your hogs. How are you doing? Business was Prices are pretty good right now, Kai. Actually, we've had a really good combination of factors and good domestic demand, along with exports, like you just referred to You know, there's quite a bit of uncertainty, though. China is always a wild card, and then the next question is, Do you believe anything they're saying about the rebuilding of the hog industry and then we've also got this whole issue with line speeds and a judge's ruling in Minnesota that's going to slow us up so It's pretty tumultuous time we're trying to hang on to some profits is that the lines beating is literally how fast they process. The Hogs. Just give me the 30,000 FT view here is that what's going on? Sure, there is a new inspection system that went in place for moving hogs through the harvest facility. Which is good for producers like me good demand, but a judge has looked at that system and said they've been take into account all the factors that should have been anyhow. Now it's a political football. Chi. Yeah, I bet Let me ask you a couple of, um sort of ancillary questions. Number one is whether I understand You guys have been having a drought up there and farming stuff in the best of times and and I can't imagine doing it during a drought. Yeah, I'm in the northern part of Illinois and we are very dry. We had some good rain Father's Day weekend, but that's about it. If the hot temperatures would stay abated, you know, and we sure don't want that dome They've had out in the Pacific Northwest to come over the Midwest. I'll tell you that. Yeah. Uh, okay. So item number two, uh, is sort of domestic demand as people get back. Are you seeing demand for ribs and you know all that good stuff that comes out of your hogs. Yeah, we are. And food service has come back online and all of a sudden they start stacking up right and ballparks. I mean full capacity at Wrigley Field. You know, that's a lot of hot dogs. They need all of a sudden, so As we see things come back online up. Pork is positioned pretty competitively priced in the meat case, and and we all know. Okay. Bacon's a bargain at twice the price, so demand is good. Alright, but wait a minute. Are you a Cubs fan? Yes, I am the boy After this last six games. I'm not so sure I'll claim them. But afraid I am. Yeah, It's a little tough, little tougher Cubs fans right now, Um Okay, last thing and then I'll let you go and let you get back to work, Mr. Duncan. How long do you think And I'm pretty sure I've asked you a variety of this question. At least every time over the past, you know, year and a half or whatever. How long are you figuring until you can look and say, you know what the pandemic is done, and my operations on my farm are back to normal. That's a great question. I thought it was going to be pretty soon here. You know you're always a little nervous, and you don't want to take things for granted. But I think once we get over this demand surge now of re stacking, I'd hope By the end of summer things will have settled into what's what is a sustainably profitable time period for all of agriculture, not just the hog industry, but all of us Brian Duncan.

Chip Crisis in 'Danger Zone' as Wait Times Reach New Record

"Our lead story today is one of demand and supply in that order. The commodity in question is semiconductors. The demand as we'll explain is nearly universal the supply well it's lagging and more so every day bloomberg got its hands on some data from the susquehanna financial group that says if you order a chip today the aforementioned semiconductors you're going to have to wait seventeen weeks for it to be delivered. Four plus months that is to put it mildly no way to run a supply chain. And as marketplace's samantha field reports. It is doing damage to way more than cars or computers or smartphones. These days almost everything has a chip whether we think of it as high tech or not. If it has a plug or battery probably has chips in it glenn. O'donnell research director at forrester says that includes refrigerators video. Doorbells and light bulbs you can turn on with your phone and even lower tech things like kids toys because all the toys gotta talk now and they got to react and they have little motors right. Now there's a shortage of all kinds of chips. Even the most basic ones says china vasan an analyst at bloomberg intelligence for. It doesn't matter if it's one hundred dollars or fifty cent part. There's just not enough capacity at factories around the world to meet the demand from all of the industries. That need chips because there's such a shortage. The semiconductor industry is having to pick and choose what to prioritize says. Mario morales at market research company. Idc it's for prioritizes. The large scale lear is like computing. Mobile phones is the largest market so though supply chains are always going to get priority and other companies especially smaller are going to have to wait longer for chips so shrine of austin at bloomberg says if you need something like a new appliance anytime soon even if you don't care about it being smart all of those products will be in.

"For the first time since pandemic April, the number of people on American payrolls did not rise. Instead, payrolls in December actually dropped by 140,000. That is also weaker than expected. Economist Julia Coronado is founder with macro policy perspectives, and she's been reading deeply into the report. Hi, Julia. Good morning. Where was the weakness focused? The weakness was focused almost entirely in restaurants, which is not surprising. Given the rise of the pandemic. They had to shut down. They laid off almost 500,000 workers. Which nuances the other piece of data that wages went up 8/10 of a percent month on month. Right exactly on And that's not because wages are rising, but because a lot of low wage workers fell out of the calculation, so that's not a sign of spring but a sign of weakness and that the most vulnerable workers are getting hit the hardest. It was terrible in restaurants. But if that's where the weakness was concentrated, maybe things were at least treading water elsewhere. No things were pretty decent elsewhere, you know, Expected strength and in housing, construction and manufacturing s o some decent numbers. If we can turn the corner on the pandemic, some of this could be transitory. I think that's the glass half full take of this report. Economist Julia Coronado. Macro policy perspective. Thank you so much. My pleasure. So, December numbers but keeping this 2021 focus. What about the month? We're living in now? January marketplaces Samantha Fields the short answer. Not yet. For one reason the U. S. Is still setting records for new covert infections and deaths. I think that that's the biggest determinant. Frankly, what's the virus doing? Erica Grow? Shin is an economist at Cornell University. She says. As long as so many people are staying home. We just aren't going to see a lot more hiring. We sort of reached a plateau. I would say that is not going to look a lot better until the vaccine reaches the whole lot more people and we're not there yet. But Heidi Shierholz at the Economic Policy Institute says the latest covert relief package will have a positive effect on the economy this month without that stimulus package.

"Get them. I'm Samantha Fields for marketplace. So here's a really sobering fact. According to experts, more Americans are going hungry right now, then. At any point since the census started keeping track in the late nineties. The pandemic relief package that we keep talking about it does set aside new money billions of dollars for food stamp benefits and food banks. But the need like I said, unlike anything we've seen before. We're gonna take a close look now at Texas food banks there have been scrambling to feed people. They're getting double the number of families they did last year, while at the same time dealing with some pretty heavy budget cuts. From Houston Public Media Elizabeth Trove all has that one. Quinn McGee wakes up early to get ahead of the long line of cars at the local food pantry in southwest Houston on pickup days. It's something to behold, when you leave you looking at families literally. Inside air using all these cars and sight Wow. Mickey, who uses they and them pronounced started getting food there in November. Have a partner and a nine year old son. The family has had gaps and paychecks do tow unemployment and mental health leave. They have struggled to catch up with bills. Vicky's family had never been to a food pantry before the pandemic. Now coming home with groceries is a sigh of relief is literally like Yeah, I'm really like, okay, I can rest easy. Just a little bit just a little. McGee says. In the grocery bag. There's always fresh fruits and veggies, carrots, potatoes, apples, bananas have gotten strawberries. I've gotten Manda Rand's. You say it's nice to have a healthy alternative to the canned goods that can be high and sodium. But in the new year it's likely that fewer fresh foods will make it into grocery bags like McGee's, thanks to a $2 million cut to a statewide grant program. That translates to a £19 million loss of produce. Celia Cole is CEO of Feeding Texas and Association of the State's 21 food banks that's produce We will not be able To get its produced that will likely go to waste and it's produced that could be nourishing hungry Texans at a time of unprecedented food and security due to the pandemic.

Where does the economy go from here?

"We are going to dispense with the president's remarks last night about changes he wants made to the virus relief. Bill that congress finally passed on monday. After months of negotiations. We are going to dispense with it with this observation. It's all fun and games and political intrigue until somebody gets hurt and people are getting hurt all over the place in this economy as we have been telling you for months and we got more evidence of that this morning courtesy of the commerce department will learn consumer spending fell nearly half a percent last month the first time. It has fallen since april thing. How long ago. That was and it same time. Personal income fell by a little bit more than a full percent. The third decline in four months. It's no mystery. Y right government aid has been keeping people afloat and that aid is running out so to get us going. Marketplace's samantha fields looks at what that is going to mean for this economy. This time of year is normally when people spend more money. Carl tannenbaum chief economist. At northern trust says the fact that personal income and consumer spending dropped in november is a bad omen. It does give a pretty good sense that households are not going into the new year in very strong answer to the urgency around. The negotiations in washington consumer spending crashed in march and april but then bounced most of the way back largely thanks to government aid back in april after the cares act. There was a huge pop in personal income. Ted rosman is an industry analyst at credit cards dot com and a lot of that did trickle down to other sectors of the economy. He says over the summer a lot of people felt like things were getting better but now maybe those unemployment checks have dried up. They've long since spent their first stimulus check. Maybe they're not able to go back to work. And people are nervous. After months of uncertainty over whether the federal government would provide more relief says tim quinlan senior economist at wells. Fargo six a long time to build up consumer confidence and not so long to disrupt it or to shake it and when people have less confidence and income there are less likely to spend their money. Carl tannenbaum northern trust says that is a bad combination spreading done by households accounts for almost seventy percent of our annual gross domestic product. Our national income. And if it's not recovering he says neither will the economy.

"One of the things you look for in a labor market to see where things might be headed is wages and whether they're stuck as they were for years after the financial crisis. Or whether they're going up to that point Starbucks today starting next month, nearly all of its current employees are going to get at least a 10% bump and starting wages are going to go up. 5% attract and retain new employees is the corporate mantra, of course. Home Depot said this week. It's permanently raising pay for most of its workers as well. So marketplaces Samantha Fields looks at what this might portend. So far during the pandemic, A few big companies have permanently raised wages for their employees Best buy and target over the summer. Now Starbucks and Home Depot. But Molly Kinder's at the Brookings Institution, says that is still the exception. Most companies at this point have not raised wages. In fact, she says, most big companies have gone the other way and stopped offering hazard pay to their employees as they did in the spring because of co vid. However, I think the winds are shifting. More and more Americans, she says, now support raising the minimum wage and sorry, J. R. Rahman of the nonprofit One Fair Wage says many retailers and restaurants are having trouble recruiting and retaining workers for jobs that come with high risk and low pay. Workers are in very large numbers, not willing to return for the low wages that they had before. Because of that, she says. She's seen hundreds and hundreds of independent restaurants. Having to just raise their wages pretty dramatically. Most big chain restaurants have not raised wages, but J. R. Rahman says they may have to eventually to compete. Ultimately, though, Sucharita could Ali, a retail analyst at Forrester says. We want to raise the standards of the lowest income households. It's gotta be through a government mandate because, she says, most companies are not going to do it on their own. I'm Samantha Fields for marketplace. One of the things the New York Fed does besides turn its president John Williams, loose for interviews. They do a whole bunch of data gathering and analyzing, as he said minute ago.

Let's credit card debt. Well, yes and no as marketplaces, Justin, Home reports. Ever since the pandemic started, many people have been receiving government relief.

You know, we sort of duct tape and band aided. A school together back to school shopping is marrying what parents may have bought for themselves at the start of the pandemic, says Daniel McCarthy, a marketing professor at Emory. We need furniture to make sure that they've got a good learning environment. Where do we go? Well, wouldn't it be convenient to have that furniture shipped to our door? Last week retailer Wayfair posted its first profit since going public German, in part by the work in school from home situation, and I, Kia has seen an uptick in kid's school furniture. The National Retail Federation's Catherine Collins says parents are also buying laptops, tablets and families also are more likely to buy things like speakers or headphones this year. If you have multiple kids learning at home, if possibly one or more appearances, also still working from home, the family does need a sense of privacy.

The $600 benefit officially expires this Friday. Weren't the Republicans by the way supposed to unveil this last week, they were, but there have been disagreements over what to include in the bill Over the weekend, White House officials said, they've decided on sort of a scaled down package. It's focused on the extra unemployment payment. Also, it's expected to include liability protections for businesses and schools, making it difficult for them to be sued if a worker or student got covert 19. The Republicans are also expected to include another 1200 Dollar relief payment in their legislation, and they could push for an extension of an eviction moratorium. That's expiring.
