Successful real estate investors go through many difficulties during their first five years in the industry before reaching their peak. If you want to overcome hardships, you must never stop learning and be patient in the process. While the learning curve may be painful, everything will become straightforward once you systematically organize your strategy.  Our guest experienced this during his first five years in business. In the early years, he struggled to manage everything; he faced failures and hardships; however, as the years passed, he was able to get help from others and grow his business.  This week in First Responder Financial Freedom Podcast,  Bill shares his story of growing his business in five years by learning continuously, acquiring advice from mentors, and adapting strategies within his network and his business partner Mike. Our guest speaker today will indeed teach you a lot. Tune in to learn more.  Bill Kenny is Mike's business partner, and they have been doing business together for quite some time. They currently do wholesale, private lending, and own self-storage rentals. In addition to owning multiple properties and storage spaces, he is licensed as a real estate agent in Maryland, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.    Why you need to check today's episode: Get a better understanding of why and how wholesale is important. Discover the best strategies from our guest expert. Hear why you must not stop lead generation and learn its importance for your business. And; Find out why you should seek a mentor when starting a business. And why it is important to have an assistant to help you run your business. “Businesses are a difficult journey because there are a million ways to do it. And there are a million ways to be successful. But it does take consistency in those small activities every day to grow that business. - Bill Kenny   Topics Covered: 1:09 - “Mike's been a fireman, as everybody knows, I've been a full-time realtor, and our business has been our second full-time thing going on since we joined up in like 2014 and put our business together in 2018.“ An overview of Bill's background and how he came to work in real estate. Bill describes how he and Mike met and how they became business partners. He also shared a brief introduction about himself.   7:09: “I was listening to the Dave Ramsey show, and he talked about the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad. But he talked about that as a different philosophy from what he taught, and I thought that was pretty interesting. And then within, I would say within eight months, I just started talking to a bunch of people and found a rental property, went out and bought a rental property, had no idea what I was doing.” He shares how reading Rich Dad and Poor Dad gave him the impetus to invest in Real Estate as soon as he finished reading it.   9:33 - “So what I did was I bought a course. I think it was like $500, and I don't remember anything about the course other than it said the first thing to do is go out and join your local REIA, Real Estate Investor Association.“ Getting a good foundation in real estate requires much more than reading books and listening to podcasts. It is for this reason he encourages himself to enroll in a course where he will have the opportunity to learn from and meet others with the same interest.   10:58 - “What wholesaling does is it teaches you how to evaluate deals, and it makes you understand the markets that you're in.” Bill explains what wholesale is and how it works. Also, Mike mentioned the advantages of buying wholesale. In his explanation,  buying wholesale allows you to get a house under contract and then sell it without buying it.   22:23 - “The effort that you need to put into that business and consistently do the right things. You have to do that nonstop, every day, for four to five years if you want to grow that business if you want to see any success in it. That's where you have to take that. That effort and consistency have to be there.” In Real Estate Investing, as in any other business, there are no shortcuts. Hitting your numbers requires dedication, courage, and a lot of effort. Before you hit your stride, it may take a while. But once you achieve that breakthrough, your business becomes solid.    25:44 - “The minute you stop lead generating, that's when your pipeline starts to soften up and slow up.”  According to Bill, your business will fall apart 90% of the time if you cease lead generation. Real estate investment leads should not be stopped. Bill explains why.   30:42 - “One of the things that really helped me was getting a real estate coach, somebody that's done it before, and someone that can mentor you through that process.” Bill admits that it was a roller coaster ride during his first five years in business. Fortunately, he found a coach and an assistant who helped him manage his business.   38:52 - “You know, like, hiring somebody to do QuickBooks data entry. It's just like, there are people that like that, and that is much, much better at it than you are. Yes. So it's just like, wow, instead of sitting there stressing out how to figure out how to market and put this stuff on social media and do all this thing. Guess what? There are people that, for a fair rate, will do an amazing job and do it for you.” Mike stresses the importance of having someone help you with your business. Instead of thinking that it is a waste of money, think of it as a way to alleviate stress and burden.   46:30 - “Underwriting deals as underwriting deals. Do the variables change the more zeros on the end of different people involved? Yes. But there's still a skill set to do that. And you can do it once you've once you figured it out. So underwriting a hard money deal is the same as underwriting a wholesale deal, right?”  Why is wholesale so important? Mike and Bill figure out why. Listen to them as they explain the reasons why.   53:26 - “I would say finding some account of accountability partner, a mentor, you know, someone that that's been down that road, a coach, whatever you want to call it, that stuff, like even if you got to pay for it that is valuable.” This a piece of advice Bill would give to his younger self, and it is also valid for anyone just getting started in the field. Key Takeaways: “Wholesaling is a good way to get started. If you're a new investor because you don't really have to own anything.” - Bill Kenny   “What it takes is the effort, like we were saying, the effort that you need to put into that business and consistently do the right things. You have to do that nonstop, every day for, you know, four to five years if you want to grow that business if you want to see any success in it. That's where you have to take that. That effort and consistency have to be there.” - Bill Kenny   "In real estate investing and in being a realtor, if lead generation is not at the very top, then your business is probably going to start to fall apart." - Bill Kenny   “You become a realtor, and they're like, Oh, I gotta get my business card, I gotta get my business card. They spent a whole day designing the business card. Nobody gives a shit about your business card, pick up the phone and start calling somebody. Do the things that matter.”  - Bill Kenny Resources Mentioned: Dave Ramsey Show: The Ramsey Show on Apple Podcasts Rich Dad, Poor Dad: Rich Dad Poor Dad: The #1 Best-Selling Personal Finance Book Ever Real Estate Reserve Podcast: Real Estate Reserve Podcast on Apple Podcasts Who Not How: Amazon.com: Who Not How: The Formula to Achieve Bigger Goals Through Accelerating Teamwork: 9781401960582: Sullivan, Dan, Hardy, Dr. Benjamin: Books   Connect with Bill Kenny Facebook: Bill Kenny - Real Estate Agent | Facebook Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bill_kenny_rei/?hl=en YouTube: Bill Kenny - Real Estate Agent - YouTube LinkedIn:(2) Bill Kenny | LinkedIn Website: Top Real Estate Agents Martinsburg or Hagerstown (billkennyrei.com)   Connect with First Responder Financial Freedom: Website: https://firstresponderfinancialfreedom.com/ Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/First-Responder-Financial-Freedom-104285545708905 Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/516680892660393

The nearly century-old, for-hire LTL carrier's trucks will deliver loads from its LTL service centers in Roanoke, Richmond and Manassas, as well as those in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Hagerstown, Maryland. ""We are thrilled to expand our direct service coverage and industry-leading expertise into West Virginia,"" John Luciani, COO of LTL Solutions, said in a statement. ""Adding West Virginia to our network allows us to build stronger relationships with our customers and positions us to continue offering exceptional service to the entire Northeast."" Pyle said its latest expansion strengthens its service commitment by growing access to key areas and clients across the state. Service in West Virginia represents a final step in the buildout of its Northeast/Mid-Atlantic core footprint. The move into West Virginia underscores the strategic value of Pyle's three new Virginia service centers, announced in March. In addition to West Virginia, they give the carrier's customers access to the Baltimore, Washington, Richmond and Roanoke markets — as well as some in North Carolina. The regional carrier has about 1,300 tractors, 27 LTL service centers and 16 warehouses across the Northeast. It provides asset and non-asset-based freight services including LTL, dedicated, warehousing and distribution and brokerage services. Pyle's service territory growth comes at a challenging time for the LTL segment, with many seeing volumes slow. FedEx Freight and XPO Logistics are furloughing workers, and many others are seeking cost savings. Old Dominion Freight Line plans to continue its multi-year network expansion plans despite lower demand. Yellow will sell 28 excess terminals as part of its One Yellow network transformation into a super regional LTL carrier. Saia expects to open another 10 to 15 new terminals next year, but it could delay those plans if the economy worsens. https://www.transportdive.com/news/a-duie-pyle-LTL-network-footprint-expansion-west-virginia/637549/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Issue:%202022-11-30%20Transport%20Dive%20%5Bissue:46338%5D&utm_term=Transport%20Dive "

It's November 24th. You're listening to the President's Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Thanksgiving of 1989.  There was a home in Hagerstown, Maryland that was full of a lot of joy. Probably a lot like your home today.  The Spessard family was celebrating Thanksgiving, with a dad named Jimmy, his young wife Debra, and their two small sons, Jared and Jason. The next day Jimmy would be leaving town for a while. For two weeks, was the plan. He's was heading to the country called Zaire – we now know that country as The Democratic Republic of the Congo. But as fate would have it, Thanksgiving of 1989 would be the last one that Jimmy would celebrate with his family. And you know what? He knew it. So today we're going to remember and celebrate the life of Jimmy Spessard. He's but one of the CIA Officers who died in the line of duty and is now remembered at CIA headquarters with a star chiseled into a very special marble wall in the Old Headquarters Building. I offer you this story of remembrance and celebration as we all gather today just like Jimmy did back in 1989. I hope it's a wonderful reminder to us all of how thankful we ought to be to so many who have been of service to this country. And of the many more likely to come. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief. Email: PDB@TheFirstTV.com Learn more about your ad choices.

But now is your chance to catch-up on all the action Last week, President Joe Biden spoke at a Volvo factory in Hagerstown, Maryland and addressed domestic manufacturing and the economy. During his speech, Biden accused Republicans of hoping for an economic downturn and blamed the financial struggles of the middle class on “trickle down” economic theory endorsed by the political right. But as Stanford Professor & Economist Thomas Sowell points out, “trickle down” is not a legitimate economic theory nor has anyone (economist or politician) ever advocated for it. “Trickle down” has simply morphed into a derogatory term for lowering taxes—which, according to data, has historically resulted in more revenue collected by the federal government with wealthy Americans paying a larger percentage of overall tax revenue. In “Trickle Down Theory and Tax Cuts for the Rich,” Sowell writes, “[t]he facts are unmistakably plain, for those who bother to check the facts. In 1921, when the tax rate on people making over $100,000 a year was 73 percent, the federal government collected a little over $700 million in income taxes, of which 30 percent was paid by those making over $100,000. By 1929, after a series of tax rate reductions had cut the tax rate to 24 percent on those making over $100,000, the federal government collected more than a billion dollars in income taxes, of which 65 percent was collected from those making over $100,000.” On Monday, the New York Times published a piece titled, “Biden, Storyteller in Chief, Spins Yarns That Often Unravel,” in which they documented President Biden's habit of “embellishing” his stories. Rich listens to some of Biden's greatest (and funniest) lies. Appearing on CNBC, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen insisted that the United States economy is doing well—particularly when compared to countries in Europe. Wait. Does Yellen sound like Buffalo Bill? In an outrageous editorial, Politico Europe argued that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been the most influential figure in Europe's push towards green energy. Politico writes: “It took a war criminal to speed up Europe's green revolution. By invading Ukraine and manipulating energy supplies to undermine European support for Kyiv, Russian President Vladimir Putin has achieved something generations of green campaigners could not…clean energy is now a fundamental matter of European security.”

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Show (10/11/2022): 3:05pm- On Tuesday, the United States Supreme Court vacated a decision that required undated mail-in ballots be counted in Pennsylvania. The court's ruling is likely to result in a Republican-led lawsuit challenging the legality of Pennsylvania's current mail-in ballot policies, specifically the validity of undated ballots.    3:20pm- Rich rummages through an Audacy garbage bin after finding a news article sitting on top that he thought was interesting…did he find more potential show prep in the trash? Or did he only find germs and tetanus disease?   3:45pm- State Senator Doug Mastriano—Republican Candidate for Pennsylvania Governor—joins the show to discuss his campaign, a recent Trafalgar Poll that has him down 2-points and within the margin of error of Democrat candidate Josh Shapiro, and how rising crime rates in PA's big cities like Philadelphia could potentially sway the election in his favor.   4:05pm- Former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard announced that she could no longer remain a member of the Democrat Party—citing the party's widespread embrace of “wokeness” and “racializing every issue.” Gabbard also objected to what she considers a pro-war mentality.    4:15pm- While speaking with CNBC, JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon explained that he believes a recession is likely to occur in the next six to nine months—stating that the Federal Reserve waited too long to raise interest rates. Dimon went on to implore the Biden Administration to drill domestically instead of relying on Saudi Arabia and OPEC+ for energy.    4:30pm- Justin Goodman—Senior Vice President for Advocacy & Public Policy at White Coat Waste Project—joins the show to talk about his organization's monitoring of medical testing on animals, particularly of the United States government which is the single largest funder of animal testing in the world. Goodman reveals that, according to investigations, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) distributed tax dollars to EcoHealth Alliance which performed gain-of-function coronavirus research involving bats at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Astoundingly, the Wuhan Institute of Virology remains eligible to receive U.S. tax dollars for gain-of-function research.   4:50pm- While speaking at the 2020 Advancing Excellence in Transgender Health (AETH), Dr. Jeremi Carswel—the director of the hospital's Gender Multi-Specialty Service at Boston Children's Hospital—revealed that doctors are handing out puberty blockers to young children like “candy.” Although an advocate for gender reassignment procedures, she conceded that she was sometimes worried that “in this field” it can be “dangerous” how easily doctors are “swayed” by their patients. Audio from the conference was recently unearthed by Breitbart.    5:05pm- On Monday, the New York Times published a piece titled, “Biden, Storyteller in Chief, Spins Yarns That Often Unravel,” in which they documented President Biden's habit of “embellishing” his stories. Rich relives some of Biden's greatest lies.    5:25pm- In Washington Post Magazine, reporter David Montgomery examined what might happen if Donald Trump was to become U.S. President again in 2024. Predictably, Montgomery layouts a dystopian vision—often hysterically exaggerated.    5:40pm- What's on Matt's Cut Sheet: JD Vance obliterates Tim Ryan during Monday night's debate, Jen Psaki avoids questions while on Meet the Press, Kamala Harris rambles on late night, and Greta Thunberg is back…but is she less woke?!   6:05pm- Last week, President Joe Biden spoke at a Volvo factory in Hagerstown, Maryland and addressed domestic manufacturing and the economy.

On this Indigenous People's Day holiday, it's another installment in our series of Conversations with the Candidates: 2022. Today, Tom's guest is Del. Neil Parrott. He is a Republican candidate for the 6th US congressional district, which includes Frederick, Hagerstown, Cumberland and the area stretching to the western border of the state. He is running against incumbent Congressman David Trone, a Democrat. This election is a rematch of the 6th district contest in 2020, when Congressman Trone beat Del. Parrott by 20 points. But the boundaries of the district were changed this year after Republicans challenged a map designed by Democrats in the Maryland General Assembly. The 6th had previously included parts of heavily Democratic Montgomery County, but that's no longer the case, and the race between Del. Parrott, a Republican, and Representative Trone, a Democrat, is considered the tightest Congressional race in Maryland.We invited Rep. Trone to join us, but his campaign did not respond to our invitation. Neil Parrott was elected to the Maryland House of Delegates in 2011. He holds a Bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland, College Park and an MBA from Mount St. Mary's University. He is 52 years old. He lives in Hagerstown with his wife and three children.

According to National Review, Biden stated: “We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis.”   3:15pm- According to Wall Street Journal reporting, in response to OPCE+ announcing it will reduce oil production by 2 million barrels per-day, the Biden Administration has begun considering an easing of sanctions against Venezuela and its authoritarian president Nicolas Maduro—with the intention of ultimately importing more oil from Venezuela.    3:30pm- Appearing on CNN with Wolf Blitzer, former Treasury Secretary & Harvard professor Larry Summers stated the more natural gas America is able to produce domestically, the more secure the country will ultimately be—emphasizing, natural gas “is a good thing, not a bad thing” because it creates less carbon dioxide than many energy alternatives, like coal.    3:45pm- On Friday, President Joe Biden spoke at a Volvo factory in Hagerstown, Maryland and addressed domestic manufacturing and the economy. During his speech, Biden accused Republicans of hoping for an economic downturn. He also stated that he was in the process of building a new, better economy…and grossly wiped his nose in the middle of it…   3:55pm- Is producer Henry's production so bad that it's actually good?

Though the job pays nearly $180,000 annually, the AP revealed his schedule was “blank during roughly one-third of workdays”—and “in 2021, Fetterman's calendars showed 115 workdays with no activities or events listed.”   5:20pm- While appearing on Fox News with Jesse Waters, former Democrat Congresswoman suggested that the F.B.I. and other intelligence agencies attempted to alter the 2020 election by suppressing damaging information on Hunter Biden from going public and preventing that information from being shared on social media platforms.   5:30pm- Ryan-Marie Houck, the wife of Mark Houck, recounted the terrifying morning her home was raided by F.B.I. officials.

That is a radical statement! Being well is something we all want. We follow the latest diet trends. We take the recommended supplements. We become "fat phobic," telling ourselves we are not "good enough" if we are overweight. Debra Benfield, founder and owner of Body in Mind Nutrition, told me that there is an ageist diet/wellness culture that leads to a lack of body respect in the Pro-Aging movement. Deb wants to blaze a path into elderhood without the scales! Topics covered: Internal biases around eating, diet, weight and fitness, specifically focused on women over 50 We have learned that in order to be loved, be worthy or be of value, we must be thin, This belief leads to disordered eating, feeling badly about ourselves.  Intuitive eating - eat when you are hungry, stop when you are full. Stay out of your head, stop counting calories, stop tracking,  We can feel overwhelmed by so many different diets and even may have forgotten how to eat a healthy diet. Research shows that it is not obesity that causes heart disease, diabetes or other diseases, it is actually the behaviors or genetics or trauma. You can be fat and fit.  Being thin does not equal healthy. Episode Takeaways: 1. Wrap your head around the idea that all bodies are worthy 2.

It really can be a program that can move you into your next chapter with great comfort and ease. So let's get to what we're talking about today. And I've been struggling with this topic a little bit, the toxicity of the wellness culture. I mean, I mostly try to eat healthy. I take supplements. I exercise some most of the time. No, probably not as much as I should. And I have to admit, I am a fair weather walker and hiker when it is cold and rainy. I am not the one that's out there, but I do get uncomfortable when the scale says I've gained a few pounds and all of these beliefs about weight and fitness and behaviors. These all are reinforced by my family and by the media. You know, we all hear comments like, oh, she's really put on some weight or, well, wouldn't she be pretty if she just lost some weight? Advertisements and TV shows portray happy, slender people and not so happy larger people. And if they're heavy older people, the images can be even more demeaning. So preparing for this show has shown me how much I've bought into these ideas that fat is bad and skinny is good. Did you know that we as a society spend over $35 billion on diet products annually? It is a lucrative industry. And diet culture is that collective set of social expectations telling us that there's one way to be. And one way to look. And one way to eat. So that we are a better person. And we're a more worthy person if our bodies are in that mold that we all hear about. So today we're going to dissect what it is meant by the wellness culture, how it can be toxic and how it affects us as we age. And I really want you to join in and ask questions, because a lot of this is learning for me, and I'm sure it's learning for you. So feel free to join us. And let me bring on our expert today. Her name is Deborah Benfield. Hi, Deb. Wendy. Hey, everybody. So Deborah invites you to join her on the intersection of pro aging and body liberation on her newest website. DebraBenfield.com. From her experience, she understands how aging creates vulnerability to the ageist, diet, wellness, culture, and how frustrating it is to find a profound lack of body respect in the pro aging movement. And I had to check with her on that quote because I was like, Wait, pro, aging? Aren't we, like all about accepting where we are? Well, you're going to hear about some of how it's not accepting. Deb is a registered dietitian nutritionist with over 35 years of experience in that field. She's also a registered yoga teacher. She is the founder and owner of Body and Mind Nutrition, a group practice of registered dietitians and nutritionists. And like I said, the founder of her newest site, which is more focused on the aging, she'll tell us more about that. Deborah Benfield She's passionate about preventing and treating disordered eating and eating disorders and supporting you in feeling more comfortable and confident in your relationship with food, eating and your body. So, Deb. Tell me how you got into this field in the first place and then kind of what your journey has been to move more into the aging space. Well, I first want to thank you. I really appreciate your openness to this conversation, because I know it's kind of tricky and surprising to think about how the pro aging movement may have some problems with how we look at bodies. And I think that may be more true for women's bodies. I also want to say that my pronouns are she, her, hers. And I want to talk just a minute about my vocabulary. I you'll hear me say obesity right now as a word that I will not be saying any further. I believe that the way we talk about bodies further stigmatizes pathologizing as bodies that are fat and fat, in my worldview is a descriptor just like you have red hair. Wendy I believe that it's just a descriptor of who you are. I have brown eyes, so it's a description of me. So fat in my worldview is not pejorative. It's a description. So you'll hear me say a fat and not the ugly words. And I'll talk a lot more about that later, too. So I got into this because I really like talking to people as whole human beings. So when I started my career, I pretty quickly started referring clients to therapists to talk about issues outside of what was going on in their eating and their relationship with their bodies. And I happened to develop a relationship with a therapist. That was amazing. Her name is Joan Wilkins, and she was my supervisor, and her specialty was eating disorders. So I, very early in my career, started developing this curiosity and interest in learning more. And it's just kind of become what I do. And I'm very passionate about the work. It's very rewarding to watch and work with a woman who starts to become more powerful in her life and doesn't kind of give her power away by wanting to shrink herself. So I hope that's all well. And so, you know, we talked about the early time we're getting into the eating disorders, but now you're moving into how it's affecting us as we age. So what brought your interest there? Well, I will be 64 in December. And when I turned 60, I also became a grandmother for the first time. Oh, congratulations. Thank you. So something happened in my head where I just wanted to do more research on what we know to be true about how to support aging with vitality and being who I am and understanding what I understand about diet and wellness culture. I was absolutely shocked by how the anti-aging messages hit me hard and fast that I had to get through what I consider to be a bunch of bullshit. I didn't ask you if I can say those kinds of words on your show. Of course, again, this is an adult show. But it just felt like I had to wade through a lot of things that I knew were not based in science and I knew were very adjust and what I consider to be phobic. So I quickly saw that I had to dig a little deeper and I really couldn't find what I was looking for. So I realized that I had to I wanted to create what I think people are needing, what I needed to start with. And it's been it's been fascinating to me to really look at how you can support aging with vitality without getting pulled into all of the you must lose weight. Yeah. So I want to talk about those biases and I want to talk about internal biases because those certainly do hold us back. I mean, and we have more control over those than we do some of the external biases we hear from the media. So in my world, I talk about living an engaged, meaningful life and getting over that internal bias of I'm too old, I don't have the energy anymore. I don't learn as quickly. And shifting that message. In your world, it's more about eating and diet and weight and fitness. And so what are some of the messages that you hear that are internal biases and how do we address those? Yeah, I think that it's I really love that we're kind of focused on a particular group of people right now because coming of age, when we all came of age, I went back and looked at the timeline of how women's bodies were portrayed in the media. The forties and fifties, women's curvy and voluptuous bodies were heralded as the ideal, the beauty ideal. And as a matter of fact, there are there is evidence of, like ads for weight gain products. Really? Yes. I'll show you. There are like you can't be too skinny in the forties and fifties. That's not appealing. Now, of course, all of this marketed to women. Right. And then guess what happened in the sixties? Twiggy, twiggy. Twiggy entered our lexicon and the diet industry took hold and just blew up. And women quickly believed they had to be like Twiggy and which, in my opinion, is unachievable and ridiculously thin and likely fragile. And if you pursue that kind of ideal, you have to diet. I mean, that's what happened is the women believed that in order to be beautiful, in order to be valued, in order to have worth, they must diet. So I don't know if you watched Mad Men. I watch some of that, yeah. I think the character Betty Draper is an amazing character to talk about when it comes to this, because that show took place when all of this happened and it's set in that time period. They did a great job of showing what happened, especially with women in that time. And she joined Weight Watchers and that was the classic choice. And they show her in several shows going back into the kitchen and sneaking her food and actually bingeing the foods that she was deprived of. So it's really interesting to look at how in the sixties. The dive industry took hold because women felt to be worthy, to be loved, to be valued, they must be thin. And I really feel like that's where it really shifted in a in a big way. And also what you're describing about the money that was to be made based on that. And there are a lot of people that believe that it's not surprising that that's also when the women's movement was taking place and that perhaps there was kind of this interesting way to get women to be disempowered. If they're really focused on dieting, they won't have as much of a voice. They will have as much power. So Naomi Wolf's book, The Beauty Myth, is a wonderful book to read if you want to dig into that concept. Interesting. She's not the only one that believes that, but that book is very powerful. And what's interesting, Deborah, is that if that started in the sixties, here we are. What. 60 years later and it's still going on. I mean, you know, I can look in my in my cabinet, you know, I have the whole body diet. I have, you know, diet for a small planet. I have South Beach diet. I have like all these books because I'm like, oh, gosh, you know, I've got to lose a little weight. And every trend changes. You know, it's like, Whoa, och, don't eat carbs. Well, now you should eat carbs. Don't eat fruit. Well, now you should eat fruit. You know, it's like count calories don't count calories. And it's so confusing and no wonder it creates disordered eating. I don't know about eating disorders, so maybe you can differentiate that for me because I don't understand that. Yeah, we're definitely going to talk about that. I don't know if you want to jump into that now, but I think we're we need to talk. I know it's way outside the scope of the show to get to details about eating disorders, but I think it is helpful to look at what is normal and what is disordered and what is an actual diagnosable eating disorder. Yeah. Do you want to do that now? Well, first of all, Angela says, what was the name of that book you mentioned? It is titled The Beauty Myth. The Beauty Myth. And the author is Naomi Woolf was written quite a while ago, but it's exceptional when it when you look into the principle that we're talking about. So yeah, we can go one of two ways. Why don't you describe the difference right now? And then we'll talk a little bit more about the dieting and intuitive eating. How about that? Okay. So perhaps I feel that eating occurs on a continuum and most of us kind of travel up and down that continuum, hopefully not too far toward disordered eating, but normal eating is. Easy. Normal eating is messy. It's eating when you're hungry. When your body says it's time to eat. And stopping. When you're full and. Even a variety of foods that satisfy you. So that you can actually notice when you're satisfied and full. It is not being in your head, counting and calculating and tracking at all. It is only listening to your body and therefore not struggling with feeling guilty or even ashamed of what you're doing. So there's no reaction in your emotional life and there's no space taken up in your head. You're very simply easily eating when you're hungry. Stop it when you're satisfied. And disordered. Disordered eating is likely getting much more in your head with it. And much more rule based, much more tracking, and therefore more reaction. More in your head following rules, and therefore feeling like you're being bad if you've eaten something that you've decided is bad. And eating disorders are. We have many we have anorexia nervosa. We have bulimia nervosa. We have binge eating disorder. We have arfid, which is a new diagnosis, relatively new ARFID stands for If I Get All This right, avoidant restrictive food intake disorder. And it's really about having a negative experience like choking or vomiting, that's created an anxiety about eating or a sensory issue where there are many foods that you feel like you can't eat, that you can only eat a shorter list of foods. And there's also something called Orlistat, which is basically a group of disorders that don't fit into any other boxes. So it's like a catchall phrase, but there is a disorder to the point of some debilitation in your lifestyle, so we can break each of these down. There's a lot to talk about with you. I know this is where I get hung up, because when you describe normal eating, just eat what you want, when you want until you're full. I mean, I think I had mentioned this to you once, you know, like if I had a plate of chocolate chip cookies here, which is my go to dessert and I have a refrigerator with carrots, celery and lettuce, I'm going for the chocolate chip cookies every time. You know, it tastes good. It's easier than putting together a salad. How is that normal eating? Of course, I'm probably going to beat myself up about it and say, Why did you do that? You know that's not good for you. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I do want to say you mentioned before that, you know, there was this diet and that diet and sometimes they contradict each other. I do want to say that. Probably every single client that I work with comes to me with that particular feeling of overwhelm by all the different kinds of diets that have they've heard about feeling kind of lost and like, Which way do I go? Because they're so contradictory. Also really noticing that they feel kind of like they have forgotten how to eat. Like, actually, like I forgot eat. I've lost my way because of all the diets that they've been on. And they may not have a full blown eating disorder, but they are feeling all of those things. They're trying to find their way back. So the way that we find your way back is by trying to get out of your heads and starting to realize that your body carries innate wisdom that your body actually knows. When you need to be nourished and what even what foods would nourish you and when you've got enough. Now there's a look on your face that is to look at people's faces. It's like, I can't believe that could possibly be true. But if you think about if you've been around a baby, you know that a baby cries a very distinct I'm hungry cry. It's very distinct. And babies pull away when they've had enough, when they're satisfied. We know that if children are allowed to eat with the structure of family meals, with some security around the fact that there will be food and those variety provided without a lot of food rules, without a lot of judgment, without pressure, that over time they will eat a variety of foods and their bodies will go where their bodies are genetically dictated to go. And sadly, nobody really allows that to happen. I think it's more and more true because parents are being taught that this is the way to sorry, actually raise competent eaters to prevent children from getting eating disorders. Because eating disorders are very much on the increase right now, and we're all born with that capacity. It's the culture, the cultural messages, the diets, the millions, billions of dollars that market, those diets that make us no longer trust ourselves. Yeah, I think you're right about parents today. I know when I was raising my kids again, I went through all these different diets, tofu and vegetarian, and then know we're having roast beef and whatever. And, you know, my daughter and this is where. You know, was it because I was putting the pressure on or not? But I mean, she didn't want to eat what I was cooking. And I was like, this is healthy food. You need. To be eating. This. And she does not do that to her kids. And I mean, and we got into some battles over food, you know, which is unfortunate. And Martha makes the point that even when we were young moms, I mean, we had our babies on a schedule, you know, every 3 hours you need to eat at. And so we were raised with that belief that there is a right way and a wrong way to eat. How do we undo that? Well, you know, boy, I don't even know which way to go with this. There's of talk about when I was a mom. Young mom. I was well, I was already a dietician, so I was reading certain things. And the reading that I was I mean, there were folks that were telling young moms to follow the baby. Baby led weaning there. There was that phenomenon that we should say up away. And I don't know if you want to get into all this, but Ellen Satter is the woman's name who wrote all of those books. Those books were available in the eighties and they're still available. There's also a new book called Intuitive Eating for Kids. So it's like parenting with intuitive eating. So this can be prevented or we can develop a little bit more resilience in our children when they hit all the diet messages, when they get to school or when they go to grandmother's house. Because I think that's what you're describing. I don't know. I've heard so many clients talk about that rub in the family around what people say to the children about how they're eating. If you if you think as the grandmother that there are certain rules or that you have concerns about the size of your grandchildren's bodies, you know, you can get all into like, well, should you really do you really need that or like, don't you? Should you eat your vegetables before you get your cookies? All the things you clean your plate or not clean your plate, all those things are not helpful. The children actually can be trusted to feed themselves well if we stay out away again. Very hard for people to believe. But the more you follow this intuitive eating way of feeding yourself and your family, the more you'll prevent disordered eating and eating disorders. So that's why I'm talking about it. And we haven't gotten into aging bodies yet. That's a whole nother. Yeah. And I think I think June raises a good question here. You know, eating because we're hungry or are we eating because we're angry or bored or lonely or tired or. Yeah, so discerning that you can't discern that if you're not slowing down and paying attention if you the principles of intuitive eating. We're way into this really fast. Yeah, let's. Go. The principles of intuitive eating. Start with ditching diet mentality. You have to get rid of the good bad list in your head first so that you can. Really listen to your body. If you're still in your head with what? I shouldn't have this or I should have that. It's very hard to get the discernment to give yourself space for this discernment. So to slow down and eat as mindfully as you can. I know we're all really distracted and moving really fast, so it's not that easy to slow down and notice your body. I mean, I'm a yoga teacher, and the reason I'm a yoga teacher is because I think you have to have embodiment practices where you kind of ground yourself like perhaps if you say grace or if you try to have gratitude for the food in front of you to also notice your body. And I do this because this is what I do. I put my hands on my heart and my belly to notice my own body's hunger first. And the principles of intuitive eating are to dismantle diet culture in your head, to notice your hunger sensation, to eat foods that are satisfying. And we can talk more about that so that you can stop when you're full and emotional eating as the question that's in front of us. That's very real. Emotional eating is normal human behavior. Nobody likes to hear that either. Is actually that's very normal. And can you develop some skills that help you manage your emotions in other ways as well so that you have choices like, I know I'm really angry, so I need to like. Go punch the pillows for a walk or call a friend or write in a journal, or just sit and let yourself feel. Let yourself ride the. Wave of anger because it does pass. All right. So that's a lot. That's a lot. Not easy. I mean, you started by saying, yeah, yeah, okay, good. There's a distinction because I'm going to say you started by saying normal eating is simple, but it's not easy to be mindful to slow yourself down, you know, to be out in a group or to feel frustrated and not want to just go grab a chocolate bar or something. So let's talk about aging, right? So, so easy for me to see how the anti aging movement is displaying perfect bodies and get rid of the wrinkles and all of that. And they're trying to sell something just like the diet industry. But talk to me about how the pro aging industry is not respecting the way we look. Well, what I am noticing on social media especially, is a lot of thin white bodies. So. My the person who taught me the most about all of these issues in our culture is Sonya Renee Taylor. She wrote a book called The Body is Not an Apology. The Body Is Not An Apology. And she talks about how we live in a culture that has a body hierarchy, the default body that's at the top that everybody knows without knowing is thin. Young, male, heterosexual, cisgendered, able bodied, white. Probably neuro normative, you know, all of those things, that kind of body people that live with that kind of body have power and easily belong in our culture. If you are. Anything other than that. And you may have one or more things that are not in that description. You're more in the margins, therefore more marginalized. We marginalize people based on their bodies. And the more marginalized you are, the more marginalized your identity is, the more your risk of wanting to be thin. Because the feeling is, well, I can at least be thin if I am a woman, I can at least be fat. Then if I'm old, I can at least be thin. If I am disabled, I can at least be that great black or brown. I'm can be thin because it brings you into feeling like you may belong. You may have more of a sense of power. In our culture. You're not quite as invisible either. Right. So there's increased pressure and increased pressure to be thin as you age. And if you have any other marginalized identity, it's even more so. In fact, I noticed in the most recent AARP magazine talk about they're all about pro aging right there. One of their articles was How to Stay Thin If You're a Chef. It's like I would not even have noticed that, Deb, if I hadn't been talking to you. But, yeah, it's like. There's a lot of pressure. There is a lot of pressure. A lot of there's a lot of pressure. But now I'm going to be devil's advocate. But we hear that if you are overweight, it's hard on your heart. You are at risk for diabetes. It's harder on your joints and it's not healthy. So how do you how do you deal with that image that we have, that belief that we've been told from the medical world and for years, I mean, even with COVID, oh, you're more at risk if you're overweight. You know, I have so many references for what I'm about to say. It's this is not my opinion. This is I try not to say anything. That's my opinion because I am an old fashioned scientist. I really like to read and learn and speak with an expert, you know, kind of. Status and through that lens. So what I'm going to say is I can send you lots of like links to articles and podcasts, etc.. So all of the resource that talks about. I'm going to say that medical term obesity causes hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, even COVID, and not that it caused COVID. We can talk about that in just a minute. But all of that research is correlational. And not causal. We have no causal research that shows that being a certain way causes a disease process. What we have is certain activity patterns, certain particular dietary patterns. Definitely genetics. Definitely stress. There are many things that we actually do have research on that causes those diseases. And people assume people have assumed because of correlation that's correlated, but it's actually the behavior. I have worked with many folks that are fat, that have high levels of fitness, that have perfect labs. I've worked with very thin folks that are not at all fit and have high cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension. You cannot tell by looking at somebody that they're healthy. Being thin does not equal healthy. Losing weight does not equal healthy. As a matter of fact, what we also know is that yo-yoing weight cycling actually does cause hypertension and other aspects of heart disease. So we also know that 95% of people who go on diets regain the weight plus. So dieting is not a solution. So if I understand you right. What you're saying is that. Being fat does not cause. Hypertension does not cause diabetes. It's the lifestyle around that that's causing those illnesses. It's the particular kinds of behaviors. And it may be genetic. It may be stress and anxiety. We also know that trauma having trauma experiences, especially early in life, is related to certain body sizes and diseases. So it's much more complicated than we are, we assume. We make a lot of assumptions that make it very black and white and simplified. And there's a lot of problems with that because then people who are in fat bodies are stigmatized. They especially are stigmatized in the health care setting so that that kind of stress and we also have research that weight stigma is a stressor that can contribute to disease process. So it's such a mess. Because you're afraid to go to the doctor, because you're going to be embarrassed. And it's how you treat it when you do go to the doctor. There's shame. There's fetching, there's body shame that's experienced. That's very legit. So, yeah, it's very, very messy. It's not. I'm afraid in our culture we see it very simply that losing weight is good. Being thinner is good. Certain foods are superfoods and goods, and it's so much more complicated. Then there's also access. Access to food. I think that we actually believe that there is a moral value to food and a moral value to thinness, that people are better people if they're thinner and that certain foods are good. I mean, if you listen to what people say, I'm being sinful. Yeah, I mean, it gets really convoluted pretty quickly. I still need to learn a lot to shift my beliefs and to think that I'm not going to eat those chocolate chip cookies instead of the. Well, something we should talk about with intuitive eating is that there is a psychological phenomenon called habituation. But if you have something that you're deprived of, of course you want to eat it all. That's a normal reaction to deprivation if you have permission to eat the food consistently. Like if you start to bring chocolate chip cookies in and you eat them, you know you can eat them and you know you can have them whenever you're hungry again. You will start to lose interest in the chocolate chip cookies over time. You habituate to cookies and they have less and less and less power over you. Okay. Well, we're getting towards the end here. I mean, we could probably talk for another couple of hours. There's so much to talk about. I know. But give me a couple of takeaways that those of us who are just learning about this for the first time, what we can do to take this into this next chapter of our lives as we are aging. I think the first thing is to wrap your head around the fact that all bodies are worthy. I mean, we can't. White knuckle and control. Our bodies into a particular size and shape. As a matter of fact, the more you try to do that, the more likely you are to get disordered in your eating. And you could you could end up with an eating disorder. And we didn't really get into that very much today. But it's a real problem with midlife and older women because you do feel like you can't control your body. And the more you like knuckle, the more disordered you become. So trying to. Be a little bit more compassionate with yourself and understanding that all bodies are worthy. Number one.

Pig-Heart Transplants in Two Brain-Dead People Offer Chance to Improve Tests for Pig Viruses https://www.wsj.com/articles/pig-heart-transplants-in-two-brain-dead-people-offer-chance-to-improve-tests-for-pig-viruses-11657638000 According to WSJ: Two brain-dead individuals received genetically modified pig-heart transplants, part of growing efforts by scientists who want to improve tests on pig organs for pig viruses and gather data that could help launch clinical trials of animal-to-human organ transplants. Scientists at NYU Langone Health, where the research studies took place in June and July, said the pig hearts were flown from a facility hundreds of miles away and then transplanted into two recently deceased individuals, Lawrence Kelly, 72, a former welder from Beaver Meadows, Pa., and Alva Capuano, 64, a former teacher from New York City. Mr. Kelly was driving alone in his car when he suffered a heart attack, according to his fiancée, Alice Michael. Ms. Capuano, who had been the recipient of a kidney transplant from her son many years ago, had a heart attack while at home, said her husband, Richard Capuano. Both individuals were later declared brain-dead and maintained on ventilators. Their families agreed to donate their bodies to science, to take part in the research studies. In the U.S., brain death is defined as the irreversible cessation of all brain function, even if heart and lung activity can be maintained with machines. The pig hearts weren’t immediately rejected by the recipients’ bodies and functioned for the duration of the three-day studies, according to Nader Moazami, surgical director of heart transplantation at NYU Langone Health, who led the pig-heart procedures. The data haven’t been published yet or peer-reviewed. The issue was highlighted by the recent case of David Bennett, a 57-year-old handyman from Hagerstown, Md., whose pig-heart transplant was conducted at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. The emergency procedure was aimed at extending the critically ill man’s life. Mr. Bennett died in March, 60 days after the transplant surgery.

Euro, dollar a penny away from parity for first time in 20 years https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/euro-dollar-penny-away-from-parity-first-time-20-years For the first time in nearly two decades, the exchange rate between the euro and the U.S dollar is about equal. The euro dropped to a 20-year low on Monday, approaching parity with the dollar on fears that an energy crisis in the European Union could drag the region into a recession. The euro traded at around $1.007 on Monday afternoon in the U.S, down roughly 15% from the start of the year. The parity between the two currencies comes as Russia shut off a key pipeline – Nord Stream 1 – carrying gas to Germany for annual maintenance. While the routine work that includes "testing of mechanical elements and automation systems" is scheduled to end on July 21, German officials fear the suspension of Russian gas could last longer than anticipated because of the war in Ukraine. The strong U.S. dollar is good news for Americans traveling to Europe this summer, who can expect to pay less for a plethora of goods while they are overseas. Atlanta Fed GDP Tracker Still Negative Even After Blowout Jobs Number https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2022/07/08/atlanta-fed-gdp-tracker-still-negative-even-after-blowout-jobs-number/ The jobs number for June was much better than expected but not good enough to push the Atlanta Fed’s real-time GDP tracker back into positive territory. The Department of Labor said the U.S. economy added 372,000 jobs in the month of June, far better than the 250,000 expected. Wholesaler inventories grew by 1.8 percent in May, slightly lower than the initial estimate of two percent. The growth of employment and inventories was not enough to overcome the disappointing news in the weeks preceding it. The real-time GDP tracker run by the Federal Reserve, called GDPNOW, fell into negative territory weeks ago and remains there even now. On Friday afternoon, it registered a 1.2 percent contraction in the economy in the second quarter. If that turns out to be right, this would be the second consecutive quarterly contraction. In the minds of many, that constitutes a recession—even if the official arbiters of recessions at the National Bureau of Economic Research may not declare it to be a recession because unemployment remains so low. The odds are that the Atlanta Fed’s tracker will not rise into positive territory. There are only three more readings left before the official read of second quarter GDP is published on July 28th. On July 27th, we’ll get the final read. It will include figures from estimates of manufacturing in June, likely to show evidence of the contraction that has shown up in surveys. The final data source that will inform that GDPNOW estimate will be the Advance Economic Indicators, which are an amalgam of what we learned from inventory and trade data. In short, GDPNOW is more likely to fall than rise. Big upside surprises in the economic data could turn it around but that looks unlikely. Housing Could Provide More Fuel for Inflation https://www.wsj.com/articles/housing-could-provide-more-fuel-for-inflation-11657618231 Climbing housing costs are set to keep inflation elevated this year, creating another challenge for Federal Reserve officials who want to see signs that price pressures are easing before slowing their interest-rate increases. Overall annual inflation rose to 8.6% in May, while core inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy costs, hit 6%, according to the Labor Department’s consumer-price index. The June figures are set to be released Wednesday. Rising fuel costs and supply-chain disruptions from Russia’s war against Ukraine added to inflation that was already high due to surging demand from the economy’s reopening and aggressive government stimulus. Annual housing inflation, as measured in the CPI, hit a recent low in early 2021 at 1.4% and it has since rebounded, to 5.4% in May, well above the annual average of 3.5% between 2015 and 2019. Because of the way the Labor Department captures rental prices, rent inflation could continue to rise this summer before peaking at around 6.5% over the next several months, said David Wilcox, a senior economist at Bloomberg Economics and the Peterson Institute for International Economics. That would be a 36-year high. Fed rate increases have led to a broad pullback in financial risk taking, sending up borrowing costs and leading to stock-market declines. Mortgage rates have recently jumped to a 14-year high, and home builders and real-estate agents are reporting a significant pullback in sales. But demand for rental housing could continue to rise, keeping rents high. “These rent-based components in the inflation indices are likely to prove relatively impervious to the tightening in financial conditions we’re seeing right now,” said Mr. Wilcox. Other inflation forecasters see less scope for an additional, large run-up in housing inflation. Based on recent data, Omair Sharif, head of the advisory firm Inflation Insights LLC, expects housing inflation to rise to 6% by the end of the year. Meanwhile, he expects other service prices, such as for health insurance, to drop at the end of the year, providing enough downward pressure to monthly inflation readings to more than offset any strength from housing.

Pig-Heart Transplants in Two Brain-Dead People Offer Chance to Improve Tests for Pig Viruses https://www.wsj.com/articles/pig-heart-transplants-in-two-brain-dead-people-offer-chance-to-improve-tests-for-pig-viruses-11657638000 According to WSJ: Two brain-dead individuals received genetically modified pig-heart transplants, part of growing efforts by scientists who want to improve tests on pig organs for pig viruses and gather data that could help launch clinical trials of animal-to-human organ transplants. Scientists at NYU Langone Health, where the research studies took place in June and July, said the pig hearts were flown from a facility hundreds of miles away and then transplanted into two recently deceased individuals, Lawrence Kelly, 72, a former welder from Beaver Meadows, Pa., and Alva Capuano, 64, a former teacher from New York City. Mr. Kelly was driving alone in his car when he suffered a heart attack, according to his fiancée, Alice Michael. Ms. Capuano, who had been the recipient of a kidney transplant from her son many years ago, had a heart attack while at home, said her husband, Richard Capuano. Both individuals were later declared brain-dead and maintained on ventilators. Their families agreed to donate their bodies to science, to take part in the research studies. In the U.S., brain death is defined as the irreversible cessation of all brain function, even if heart and lung activity can be maintained with machines. The pig hearts weren’t immediately rejected by the recipients’ bodies and functioned for the duration of the three-day studies, according to Nader Moazami, surgical director of heart transplantation at NYU Langone Health, who led the pig-heart procedures. The data haven’t been published yet or peer-reviewed. The issue was highlighted by the recent case of David Bennett, a 57-year-old handyman from Hagerstown, Md., whose pig-heart transplant was conducted at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. The emergency procedure was aimed at extending the critically ill man’s life. Mr. Bennett died in March, 60 days after the transplant surgery.

Euro, dollar a penny away from parity for first time in 20 years https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/euro-dollar-penny-away-from-parity-first-time-20-years For the first time in nearly two decades, the exchange rate between the euro and the U.S dollar is about equal. The euro dropped to a 20-year low on Monday, approaching parity with the dollar on fears that an energy crisis in the European Union could drag the region into a recession. The euro traded at around $1.007 on Monday afternoon in the U.S, down roughly 15% from the start of the year. The parity between the two currencies comes as Russia shut off a key pipeline – Nord Stream 1 – carrying gas to Germany for annual maintenance. While the routine work that includes "testing of mechanical elements and automation systems" is scheduled to end on July 21, German officials fear the suspension of Russian gas could last longer than anticipated because of the war in Ukraine. The strong U.S. dollar is good news for Americans traveling to Europe this summer, who can expect to pay less for a plethora of goods while they are overseas. Atlanta Fed GDP Tracker Still Negative Even After Blowout Jobs Number https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2022/07/08/atlanta-fed-gdp-tracker-still-negative-even-after-blowout-jobs-number/ The jobs number for June was much better than expected but not good enough to push the Atlanta Fed’s real-time GDP tracker back into positive territory. The Department of Labor said the U.S. economy added 372,000 jobs in the month of June, far better than the 250,000 expected. Wholesaler inventories grew by 1.8 percent in May, slightly lower than the initial estimate of two percent. The growth of employment and inventories was not enough to overcome the disappointing news in the weeks preceding it. The real-time GDP tracker run by the Federal Reserve, called GDPNOW, fell into negative territory weeks ago and remains there even now. On Friday afternoon, it registered a 1.2 percent contraction in the economy in the second quarter. If that turns out to be right, this would be the second consecutive quarterly contraction. In the minds of many, that constitutes a recession—even if the official arbiters of recessions at the National Bureau of Economic Research may not declare it to be a recession because unemployment remains so low. The odds are that the Atlanta Fed’s tracker will not rise into positive territory. There are only three more readings left before the official read of second quarter GDP is published on July 28th. On July 27th, we’ll get the final read. It will include figures from estimates of manufacturing in June, likely to show evidence of the contraction that has shown up in surveys. The final data source that will inform that GDPNOW estimate will be the Advance Economic Indicators, which are an amalgam of what we learned from inventory and trade data. In short, GDPNOW is more likely to fall than rise. Big upside surprises in the economic data could turn it around but that looks unlikely. Housing Could Provide More Fuel for Inflation https://www.wsj.com/articles/housing-could-provide-more-fuel-for-inflation-11657618231 Climbing housing costs are set to keep inflation elevated this year, creating another challenge for Federal Reserve officials who want to see signs that price pressures are easing before slowing their interest-rate increases. Overall annual inflation rose to 8.6% in May, while core inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy costs, hit 6%, according to the Labor Department’s consumer-price index. The June figures are set to be released Wednesday. Rising fuel costs and supply-chain disruptions from Russia’s war against Ukraine added to inflation that was already high due to surging demand from the economy’s reopening and aggressive government stimulus. Annual housing inflation, as measured in the CPI, hit a recent low in early 2021 at 1.4% and it has since rebounded, to 5.4% in May, well above the annual average of 3.5% between 2015 and 2019. Because of the way the Labor Department captures rental prices, rent inflation could continue to rise this summer before peaking at around 6.5% over the next several months, said David Wilcox, a senior economist at Bloomberg Economics and the Peterson Institute for International Economics. That would be a 36-year high. Fed rate increases have led to a broad pullback in financial risk taking, sending up borrowing costs and leading to stock-market declines. Mortgage rates have recently jumped to a 14-year high, and home builders and real-estate agents are reporting a significant pullback in sales. But demand for rental housing could continue to rise, keeping rents high. “These rent-based components in the inflation indices are likely to prove relatively impervious to the tightening in financial conditions we’re seeing right now,” said Mr. Wilcox. Other inflation forecasters see less scope for an additional, large run-up in housing inflation. Based on recent data, Omair Sharif, head of the advisory firm Inflation Insights LLC, expects housing inflation to rise to 6% by the end of the year. Meanwhile, he expects other service prices, such as for health insurance, to drop at the end of the year, providing enough downward pressure to monthly inflation readings to more than offset any strength from housing.
