The truth about inflation being a proverbial tax on the poor and most marginalized is once again being proven in the U.S.A., per the recent analysis of federal data on inflation. That’s but one of several takeaways from the report on WND by the Daily Signal, which cited research economist E.J. Antonini, Ph.D. with the Center for Data Analysis at the Heritage Foundation. While the report is sobering, it has the potential for this being a vehicle for advancing the ‘good news’ about manufactured housing, which will be part of our additional information with more MHProNews analysis and commentary segment that follows their article. The Daily Business News on MHProNews signature left-right headline news recap and manufactured housing connected equities segment rounds out today’s report.

Per the WND NewsCenter, which cited the Daily Signal, is the following report provided by agreement to MHProNews.


Average American family has effectively lost $7,100 under Biden, economist says

His policies are why ‘families cannot afford to live’ in his nation

An economist says the average American family has effectively lost more than $7,000 due to inflation and higher interest rates since President Joe Biden took office.

The consumer price index, a key inflation measure, increased 0.1 % in November, up 7.1% from Nov. 2021, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported on Tuesday. The figure marks a slowdown in rampant inflation, but not a reversal of the trend that has caused prices for everyday goods like food and gas to ratchet up in recent months.

“Although the slowdown in inflation is certainly welcome, it’s not a sign of things to come. The latest data illustrate why families cannot afford to live in Biden’s America,” EJ Antoni, a research fellow for regional economics in the Center for Data Analysis at The Heritage Foundation, said in a Tuesday report. (The Daily Signal is Heritage’s multimedia news organization.)

“Under Biden, prices have risen so much faster than wages that the average family has lost $5,800 in real annual income. That loss is thanks to the ‘hidden’ tax of inflation, caused by the Biden administration and congressional Democrats’ policies ,” Antoni said.

Antoni added:

Higher interest rates are now costing the typical family another $1,300 annually. Combined with a lower real income, this effectively costs families a total of $7,100 in annual income under Biden.

 The food index rose 0.5%, the fuel oil index rose 1.7%, and the shelter index rose 0.6% while the used car and truck index decreased 2.9% and the energy index decreased 1.6%, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported.

“An unexpected decline in the prices of beef, used vehicles, and vehicle rentals caused the latest inflation data to come in below expectations. While those price decreases are a welcomed relief for consumers, the decrease is being driven by a drop in demand, not an increase in supply,” Antoni told The Daily Signal in a statement.

“In other words, people simply cannot afford these items at current prices, so consumers are buying less, driving prices down. It is more a sign of desperation than wealth,” Antoni explained.

The November report marked an improvement over some economists’ expectations that the consumer price index increased 0.3% last month and 7.3% since Nov. 2021, CNBC reported.

U.S. Treasury Department Sec. Janet Yellen said she “[believes] inflation will be lower” in 2023 during a “60 Minutes” interview with CBS’s Norah O’Donnell on Sunday.

“So I believe inflation will be lower. I am very hopeful that the labor market will remain quite healthy so that people can feel good about their finances and their personal economic situation,” Yellen said when asked what the new year will “look like for the average consumer.”

O’Donnell noted that “it’s been decades since the American consumer has had to deal with inflation like this.”

Yellen responded:

Yes, and I hope that it will be short-lived. We learned a lot of lessons from the high inflation we experienced in the 1970s.

And we’re all aware that it’s critically important that inflation be brought under control and not become endemic to our economy. And we’re making sure that that won’t happen.

Many Americans are struggling to afford groceries and have adjusted their grocery shopping habits throughout the past year, according to a Swiftly survey released last week.

The survey’s executive summary reads in part:

Inflation and rising food costs are impacting most consumers’ grocery shopping habits, with over two-thirds struggling to pay their grocery bills.

Nearly half [of consumers] are shopping based on discounts and promotions; however, a majority spend an hour or less planning their grocery shopping trip, including time looking for discounts.

Sean Turner, Swiftly’s chief technology officer, weighed in on Tuesday’s consumer price index report.

“The urgency facing retailers is clear following this month’s CPI data. Inflation remains stubbornly high, impacting consumer’s wallets hard,” Turner said in an emailed statement. “Retailers need to provide the flexibility and convenience their customers demand, connecting online with in-store and maximizing value to keep them coming back.”

The producer price index, which “measures the prices that businesses are having to pay,” rose 0.3% last month, up 7.4% since Nov. 2021, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Nov. 10 that the consumer price index increased 0.4% in October, up 7.7% from Oct. 2021. The food index rose 0.6%, the energy index rose 1.8%, and the fuel oil index rose 19.8%, while the used car and truck index decreased 2.4% and the apparel index decreased 0.7%.

The bureau plans to release the December consumer price index on Jan. 12 , 2023.

The White House did not immediately respond to The Daily Signal’s request for comment. ##

MHProNews note: Money supply graphic that follows was not part of the WND/Daily Signal report.

Note 1: a record inflation of the money supply was followed-paralleled by the highest inflation in some 40 years. This was not only predictable, but it was also predicted. Our market reports indicated early on in the Biden era the inflation was coming, and then when it hit, reminded readers that it wasn’t transitory as some on Team Biden claimed.

Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary 

Without contradicting Dr. Antoni’s core contention, it should be recalled that Janet Yellen initially dismissed the risk of inflation. Per left-leaning CNN, “Treasury secretary concedes she was wrong on ‘path that inflation would take’ on June 1, 2022. “I think I was wrong then about the path that inflation would take,” Yellen told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room” when asked about her comments from 2021 that inflation posed only a “small risk.”

Fast forward since then to Democratic House Majority Whip James “Jim” Clyburn’s pre-midterm remarks to left-leaning MSNBC. Clyburn admitted that Democrats who passed legislation that bloated the budget ‘knew’ they would be causing inflation. Yellen, by extension, also ought to have ‘known’ what was coming. That suggests her comments as Biden’s Treasury Secretary were likely more political in 2021 than clinical, based on factors she and others could see developing.

While economics may not be a perfect science when the money supply is being artificially and rapidly increased, the obvious outcome would be the phenomenon commonly known as ‘inflation.’ MHProNews predicted several times early under the Biden regime that inflation was coming. Once it came, MHProNews – using data and historic insights – predicted it would be harmful, as Antonin and others are now stating. Facts and figures may have partisan implications, but proper use of data is not necessarily partisan in the slightest.

Given the widely acknowledged housing shortage, combined with rising costs, it is tragic but, in some ways, inevitable that millions of younger adults have moved back to mom and dad’s home in 2022 alone.

A robust use of manufactured housing during such conditions ought to be a factor that could mitigate escalating housing costs by introduction more homes that are far less expensive than conventional housing.  That would be a commonsense approach. Indeed, the so-called Biden Housing Plan mentioned manufactured housing numerous times. But what went unmentioned were the two key words that could rapidly unlock access by millions to modern HUD Code manufactured homes in the 21st century. Those two words? “Enhanced preemption” – the term used by experts to describe the increased authority that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has over local jurisdictions which unjustly zone out HUD Code manufactured homes.  HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge bluntly stated that the current situation would continue “perpetually,” even as she declined to use “enhanced preemption.” See the report, details, and how the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) played an unstated role in the background of that exchange by Fudge with a congressman who asked about federal preemption’s possible use.

HUD Sec Marcia Fudge – Zoning, Manufactured Homes – “Until We Start to Address This We Are Going to Continue to be Perpetually in This Kind of Situation.” – News-Analysis, plus Manufactured Housing Stock Updates

Over three years ago, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) warned that key forces at MHI were trying to ‘run out the clock’ on the Trump Administration and their more pro-small business, pro-manufactured housing policies.  MHARR offered to team up with a state association to pick a test case to litigate federal preemption in order to make its enforcement authority clear. But given that those states are routinely MHI state affiliates, per MHI’s own remarks, it ought to be shocking that no state accepted MHARR’s offer.


Yet some of those same state association leaders made remarks that on the surface sounded like they were complaining about the negative impacts of zoning barriers. For instance, Amy Bliss – who sits on an MHI board – said the following.

Amy Bliss is a ‘loyal’ MHI member and sits on an MHI board. She may have thought of the quotes comments as a slam against public officials. But those comments also reveal a lack of effectiveness of MHI.

Bliss’ remarks being so, then why didn’t Bliss or other state associations take up MHARR’s offer? Or to a point more recently raised by MHARR’s founding president, CEO and now senior advisor – Danny Ghorbani – why hasn’t MHI initiated legal action to enforce ‘enhanced preemption’ on their own?  See the linked Q&A with MHProNews by Ghorbani.


These are more than hypothetical questions that have little or no relevance to our industry and the millions of new potential consumers that HUD Code manufactured housing could be serving. Oddly enough, Cavco’s Bill Boor – whose firm essentially holds two seats on the current MHI executive committee – made a relevant admission during an earnings call with investment analysts.

Bill Boor is correct in saying that the industry has an opportunity to ‘catch up’ – or even pass – conventional housing builders. But that opportunity existed 2 decades ago too. That means, that until the root issues are addressed, authentic progress will not be obtained. That noted, by addressing the root issues robust growth can occur.

But instead of deploying their capital building to build more production centers, and instead of investing in litigation to enforce the industry’s rights under federal law, what does Boor’s firm continue to do? They continue to consolidate the industry, along with their other Big Three peers at MHI.  Recall that Cavco recently settled the claims leveled against them by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  Those SEC pleadings read like something out of a fictional novel.


These are among the reasons that MHProNews recently reported that storm clouds appear to be shaping up that could lead to more litigation and risk for companies that appear to be more intent on consolidating the manufactured home industry than they are for doing what would be prudent and profitable business practices.
