The economy is starting to open up. Jobs are starting to return. Commuting times are getting shorter. In fact, if you haven’t checked in yet, I’d be surprised if you even made it out of the last two months. It’s a great feeling having that feeling that everything will turn out okay, even if it’s only in the short term.
But as we start to see the economy opening up, it is important to remember what it isn’t. It isn’t going to be like when people were graduating from high school and had a bright future ahead of them. It won’t be a period where people start to have money waiting for them just because they have a certain skill set or education.
It isn’t a period where businesses are going to start booming and hiring employees at the drop of a hat. That’s not what’s happening. And it certainly isn’t going to be a period where your average citizen is going to have enough money to put food on the table and gas in the car. Right now the economy isn’t ready for that type of inflation.
