Summary:
Leveling off at approximately pre-Covid levels. The growth rate slowed as deficit spending dropped: Still in expansion but it has come way down with the post-Covid war.Drop in deficit spending that has been driving the general deceleration: Not looking good. The parts shortage is largely over, so it is about a lack of demand as deficit spending falls and prices in general rise faster than incomes: Oil prices (not money supply, for example) continue to drive headline inflation as Saudis continue to set the OSP spreads above ‘fair economic value’ which continuously drive price higher until demand collapses: And as Saudis set price and then pump and sell as much as is demanded at their price. Increased production indicates demand is increasing for their output: Oil
