McFlation: Revenue Soars After McDonald’s Hikes Prices

On Monday, McDonald’s reported that revenue was up 14% on the quarter in what the burger company attributed to “strategic menu price increases.”

While the company didn’t reveal which of its items had increases, and how they applied them to the company’s 13,513 domestic restaurants and 38,000 abroad, one branch in Darien, CT is charging as much as $18 for a Big Mac combo meal, which includes a medium soft drink and medium fries.

That same combo in Times Square costs $13.69 – so it’s all over the place, and we suspect ‘strategic’ doesn’t just mean which items they’re hiking prices on, but where.

‘I Was In Complete Shock’: New Dating Trend Sees Men Asking For Refunds When They Don’t See A ‘Return On Investment’ — How The Rules Of Romance Have Changed Amid High Costs Of Living

A new dating trend has been popping up, where men send money requests to women after they decline a second date. Some even express they’d like their date’s share of the bill back since they didn’t get a return on their “investment.”

A psychotherapist cited by CNBC pointed out that this new trend could be partially due to the skyrocketing cost of living. A first date costs an average of $77 according to LendingTree — a high price to pay in a time of wage stagnation and inflation.

The World Was Safer When America Was An Energy Superpower

Since the crumbling of the Iron Curtain and the dissolution of the Soviet Union, our leaders championed a New World Order.  Hamas’s barbaric attack has many wondering if our leadership has instead delivered a “New World Disorder.”

Commentators blame the U.S. blundering in and out of wars in the Mideast: Libya, Iraq, and the dismal Afghanistan withdrawal.  Appeasement of Iran by the Obama and Biden administrations, together with Trump’s “curious affection for autocrats,” are catalogued as causes of our unraveling world.  Seldom mentioned is the abrupt decline of the U.S. oil and gas industry. 

When Russia invaded Ukraine…, [Resident] Biden was confident that sanctions similar to those used by Trump so effectively against Iran would bring a quick end to the conflict.  After over a year and a death toll in the hundreds of thousands, it is clear that sanctions cannot work without American energy dominance.  Energy weakness also allowed Iran to evade previously effective sanctions to orchestrate the horrific Hamas attack on Israel.
