The Lead: Black Monday

Black Monday is trending because the stock market just had one. Woooof, it was ugly. The Wall Street Journal said that the market was in “bear territory.” Not quite a bear but into the woods. 

The S&P fell 3.8% and the Nasdaq dropped 4.5%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 900 points. 

A bear market is one that drops 20% from recent highs. 

Why is this happening? Inflation, global conflict, and restricted supply chains. You know this one, come on, sing along! 

The Federal Reserve begins an important two-day meeting today and is reportedly considering a 0.75% interest rate hike. That is a big jump of a magnitude not seen since 1994. Will this slow down inflation and calm the markets? Good question!

Digital License Plates

Michigan is the third state to approve digital license plates, behind California and Arizona. These are battery-powered screens that project your license number. 

Why do we need this? Well, proponents say that they are customizable, can increase visibility by switching from light to dark mode and can be used to broadcast emergency messages. 

Why wouldn’t we want this? It’s pricey. You have to pay about $150 to install one plus a subscription of about $215 per year. What do you get for that price, besides a fancy screen license? The ability to renew through the app instead of dealing with the DMV. That might be worth the price alone.

Sorry Mother Nature

The United Kingdom bragged about rewilding the country last year. But that was then and this is now. Nowadays, gas prices and inflation have given politicians a license to put environmental concerns on the back burner. 

Last year, Boris Johnson said that the government would pay farmers up to £800 million per year to re-wild their land. This year, that number has been slashed to just £50 million, or less than 1 percent of the farming budget. 

Government insiders told The Times of London that “the conflict in Ukraine has heightened the need to channel more support towards food.” But government intervention is usually what harms farmers the most. 

After World War II, Britain put an emphasis on growing in order to prevent ever having food shortages again. That and improved farming technology led to a superabundance of food. As Isabella Tree, a former dairy farmer and author of the book “Wilding,” puts it: “By the 1970s, Europe’s agricultural supply so outstripped the demand that grain and butter mountains, and milk and wine lakes accumulated in colossal grain bins and refrigerated warehouses across the Continent. With a super-abundance of grain the principal problem for the new wave of European cereal growers was how to prevent prices falling through the floor.” This led to the “zero-grazing” phenomenon of feeding grain to animals that did not usually eat grain. Now we do not know how to put that horse back in the barn, so to speak. 

Rewilding land would accomplish all manner of things that could improve our food supply but politicians need a quicker fix. Or maybe they don’t have to pretend to care about the environment because of what is now broken. Either way, Sorry Mother Nature. 

Meet Me For Le Déjeuner

Did you know that it is illegal to eat lunch at your desk in France? I wrote that sentence while eating a taco bowl at my desk but thankfully my desk is not in France. 

French laws outlawed eating in the workplace during the Industrial Revolution when it was deemed unsafe due to factory conditions. That created a different problem though: civilians out and about at lunchtime, littering and harassing one another. Eventually the French figured out how to behave and having lunch out became a national virtue. 

During the pandemic, the government asked workers to go back to eating at their desks and there was a revolt. People who oppose this argue that eating out is healthier due to socialization and the mental break. Now the French are back to eating their lunch out by law and I dare say they wouldn’t have it any other way.
