U-Haul Indicators

From Carpe Diem:

From Flint, Michigan to Austin, Texas: $3,201

From Austin, Texas to Flint, Michigan: $540

Guess the demand is about 6X higher for one-way truck rentals TO Texas vs. TO Michigan?

Texas gained about 244,000 jobs over the last year, and Michigan lost about 67,000 jobs.
Also, the Carpe Diem Quote of the Day:
"Socialism is an ideology. Capitalism is a natural phenomenon.
Socialism collapsed because it is a policy of unrestrained intervention. It tries to fix what is 'wrong' with the spontaneous, self-organizing phenomenon called capitalism. But, of course, a natural process cannot be 'fixed.' ..."
