US Economy May Still Face Recession

After 3 years of Covid related issues, the US economy is still facing a recession as the Federal Reserve has raised interest rates, leading to a slowdown in economic growth. The US Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, has expressed a guarded optimism that mentions positive changes in CPI reduction (the Consumer Price Index that measures how expensive goods are in the US), but still, she voiced her concerns about the current state of the economy and warned that the US could be heading for a recession.

Interest Rates –

How Did We Get Here?

When COVID lockdowns first took ahold in early 2020, the US economy was particularly vulnerable to the effects of an economic recession, with unemployment rising to its highest level since the Great Recession of 2008-2009 due to an inability to engage in normal economic activity.

In that moment, the US Federal Reserve responded by cutting interest rates to near-zero levels and launching quantitative easing programs to inject liquidity into the financial system. This enabled money to flow into the financial system from middle class and working class individuals who had less overhead and increasing government support to supplement their usual income. This led to a prolonged stock valuation that lasted all the way until the latter end of Fall 2022, with December and January proving to be difficult months.

High Interest Rates

The Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates has had a profound impact on the economy, and it could be setting the stage for a recession. The Fed has raised rates four times since December 2015, with the most recent increase coming in June 2018. The goal of these rate hikes is to keep inflation in check and ensure that the economy is growing at a sustainable pace. But while this may be beneficial in the long run, it can also have negative consequences in the short term.

When interest rates are increased, borrowing costs go up for businesses and consumers alike. This makes it more expensive to buy homes, cars, and other big-ticket items, which can slow economic growth. Higher rates also make it more difficult for companies to borrow money for expansion or investment purposes, which can lead to job losses and reduced consumer spending. In addition, higher interest rates can lead to a decrease in stock prices as investors become wary of investing in riskier assets. This can further dampen economic growth as businesses struggle to access capital and consumers become less confident about their financial future.

Ultimately, if the Fed continues to raise rates too quickly or too aggressively, it could trigger a recession as businesses cut back on spending and consumers become more cautious with their money. While this may seem like an unlikely scenario right now, it’s important for policymakers to keep an eye on this situation and take steps to ensure that any rate hikes are done in a measured manner that won’t have an overly negative effect on the economy.

What is Chat GPT3?

ChatGPT is a new natural language processing (NLP) technology developed by Microsoft and OpenAI. It’s designed to help developers create more natural conversations between humans and machines. ChatGPT is based on the same underlying technology as OpenAI’s GPT-3, which has been used to create powerful AI applications such as language translation, text summarization, and question answering.

However, ChatGPT takes this technology a step further by allowing developers to create more natural conversations between humans and machines. The ChatGPT research preview was released in April 2021 and has already seen tremendous success. Developers have been able to use the preview to create conversational AI applications that can understand natural language input from users and respond with appropriate responses.

Microsoft and OpenAI have been working hard to make sure that ChatGPT is ready for production use. They’ve been making important updates based on user feedback, such as improving the accuracy of the model, increasing the speed of response times, and adding support for more languages. The team is also working on making ChatGPT available through our API and Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service soon. This will make it easier for developers to integrate ChatGPT into their applications without having to build their own models from scratch.

Canelo Alvarez Launches ‘Canelo Energy’ A Network Of Gasoline Stations

Guadalajara’s boxing hero, Canelo Alvarez, is also trying to KO gasoline prices in this tumultuous time for energy markets. Also, Alvarez has a series of convenience stores called ‘Upper’ already operational.

In a sport that is so rampant with broken dreams, loss of cognitive abilities and riches, but Canelo is among the best to buck this trend. The world’s number 1 P4P fighter may take risks in boxing, but does not take risks in his financial planning. The professional boxer is currently diversifying his assets and looking to become a high-powered businessman in Mexico.

The ‘Upper’ network of stores is shown in video below. In Guadalajara, Jalisco, a network of stores shows that various hardware tools are also available within the store. No other convenience store in Mexico possesses hardware tools for car repairs, a practice more common the United States. The store has those more varied conveniences along with fresh high quality bread, healthy foods, conventional snacks found in other stores, but also the prices appear to be slightly below market or within the average.

In general, the observation can be made that some of these modernization techniques are sourced from conventions born outside of Mexico, like a well maintained convenience store in the US or Germany or a mix of any other high end convenience store in Europe. Apparently, their workers make several times the average minimum wage, hovering around 12 to 18 thousand Mexican pesos.

Upper Convenience Stores are gaining a positive reputation throughout Mexico.
