@theMarket: Beware the Hikes of March
By Bill Schmick,
03:08PM / Friday, January 14, 2022
There is a more than an even chance that the Federal Reserve Bank hikes interest rates at least 25 basis points by the end of March 2022. Several analysts expect another three hikes by the end of the year. As an equity investor, this should concern you.   This week, both the Consumer Price Index (CPI), and the Producer Price Index (PPI) came in as expected. But "expected" does not mean anything like good on the inflation front. On a year-over-year basis CPI was up 7 percent, while PPI hit 9.7 percent for all of 2021.   And while economists debate whether inflation and economic growth will subside over the course of this year, the Omicron variant is throwing a big kink

The Retired Investor: No-Shows Threaten Economy
By Bill Schmick,
04:18PM / Thursday, January 13, 2022
Last week, economists calculated that almost 5 million workers failed to show up at their jobs. Given the present upsurge in cases of the Omnicom variant, that should come as no surprise. However, it clearly has Wall Street economists reducing their estimates of first quarter 2022 GDP.   Slower economic growth normally has a negative impact on everything from the stock and bond markets, interest rates and employment. How this will ultimately affect the economy in the months ahead is a question worrying every trader and portfolio manager in the financial markets.   The first warning sign that this wave of coronavirus infection was impacting business came during the holidays.

Letter to the Editor,

To the Editor:

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s family has requested that there be "no celebration" on the upcoming weekend in his honor until the federal voting rights legislation is enacted.

A group of concerned citizens, in an effort to honor Dr. King's memory, met to discuss what to do. We represent a number of organizations across Berkshire County.

To truly honor that legacy, we agreed that it is time to rise up to "make some good noise" to protect and strengthen our democracy by doing all

The Rev. King waves to the hundreds of thousands gathered on the Washington Mall in 1963 when he gave the 'I Have a Dream' speech.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — School and town officials are hoping the town is now on the right track with the election of Jeffrey Levanos to the Select Board and the hiring of a town administrator.   Levanos, who attended the School Committee meeting on Thursday, said he was excited to be back but noted the special election on Dec. 7 and the holidays had slowed things a little. The next critical piece will be hiring a town treasurer and tax collector, he said, but it will take some time to get things righted.   The town's been without essential personnel since a wave of resignations from elected and appointed positions in late summer.
