Got to enjoy the jibes and attacks directed at a personal level because it means they really have not a single intelligent argument to make.

 The importance of such data adds to the overall picture of US economic performance. Revised jobless claims are a key data metric released at regular intervals. Ignore the data at your peril. The importance of such data adds to the overall picture of US economic performance. Revised jobless claims are a key data metric released at regular intervals.

U.S. Jobless Claims Rise as Labor Market Recovery Remains Choppy. Virginia, Kentucky and Georgia led states with the biggest increases in unadjusted claims from the prior week.... The pandemic peak was revised down to 6.149 million initial jobless claims in regular state programs from 6.867 million suggesting the extent of the recovery to date was not as strong as had previously been thought.
U.S. Jobless Claims Surprisingly Rose Last Week to 714,000 Apr 01, 2021 9:08AM ET
Exactly right. Biden's administration supported by Democrats are about to purge successful corporations with a tax increase and redistribute the funds to layabouts and the workshy. Tax increases are bad for businesses and lead to workers being laid off.

 Companies go bust through excessive, unaffordable debt. So what is your point? Wealth does not equal debt. Companies go bust through excessive, unaffordable debt. So what is your point? Wealth does not equal debt.

 "the proof of billionaires and millionaires has Proven debt is how money is created and it in no why prevents economic growth or wealth creation" - wealthy people become wealthy through wealth creation. Debt is not a measure of wealth nor does it drive wealth creation. Debt creation is a tool and if mismanaged can lead to all manner of effects including wealth destruction. "the proof of billionaires and millionaires has Proven debt is how money is created and it in no why prevents economic growth or wealth creation" - wealthy people become wealthy through wealth creation.

 The federal government ran a deficit of .1 trillion in fiscal year 2020, more than triple the deficit for fiscal year 2019. This year's deficit amounted to 15.2% of GDP, the greatest deficit as a share of the economy since 1945. The federal government ran a deficit of $3.1 trillion in fiscal year 2020, more than triple the deficit for fiscal year 2019.

 Can you highlight the 'hate' in my post you are accusing me of? I'm detailing hard facts about the COST of the borrowing. Indeed Modern Monetary Theorists prefer not to talk about debt levels and focus on other data however I think it prudent to highlight unprecedented borrowing in the context of the strength of the US dollar Can you highlight the 'hate' in my post you are accusing me of?

 Not sure you understand. A net equal wealth increase per households would not cover the debt created. Wealth increase is taxed certainly but it is already being taxed year after year and so does not start from zero. The .2 trillion is ,000 per household to date. Not sure you understand.

Over a year, Congress has passed $5.2 trillion in extraordinary spending — and President Biden wants another $3-4 trillion, split between infrastructure and social spending. For every $1 trillion worth of debt borrowed equates to $8,000 per household.

 Yields have risen in tandem with the USD - I think you already corrected yourself anyway, just wanted to confirm. The reasons why, partly inflation concerns (from market participators). Yields have risen in tandem with the USD - I think you already corrected yourself anyway, just wanted to confirm.

Gold Down, Potential U.S. Stimulus Measure Stokes Inflation Fears Apr 01, 2021 5:45AM ET
This article should read: "Gold was STEADY on Thursday morning in Asia, as a potential U.S. stimulus measure totalling more than $2 trillion stoked inflation fears..."... Gold jumped nearly $40 from yesterday's low... The strength of palladium, still trading within a whisker of all time highs would be worth a mention too.

During policy debates, figures like millions, billions, and trillions are used interchangeably. So here is a useful distinction: A $1 million program costs just under a penny per household. A $1 billion program costs $8 per household, while a $1 trillion program costs $8,000 per household.

In the unlikely scenario that interest rates remain below their typical levels, interest on the national debt is projected to consume nearly half of all federal tax revenues within three decades.

 As you can see today the USD has fallen. A weaker dollar is generally a good thing for commodities. Gold being the ultimate hedge against currency debasement (inflation) should continue to build on 78 support. It will probably retest 00 but right now it's heading back towards 39 resistance As you can see today the USD has fallen. A weaker dollar is generally a good thing for commodities.
