employment rate is 3.6 overall united states in francisco bay area. it's 1.9%. >> everybody's working showers to going up in inflation is is ready, not so it's really the inflation problem that we have to, you know, work on in the cost of money that are lending to companies to grow their businesses. >> getting focus more on the bay area in the tech sector. we always feel like that's kind of invincible they they don't they can shrug off a lot of the economic problems and other industries face for that may not be the case anymore. there could be some layoffs coming. >> not really that. you know, you're you're you're right on can i mean, prior to january, you know, stock prices for tech companies where, you know, soaring through the roof, high prices lower. evan of that's called the pressure. any stray show. it was very large. now we've got a big show up to try to get the price to earnings ratio down growth companies. tech companies rely on lending. they have to borrow money. they don't pay dividends haulage activists really grown get market share. so now fast forward, a lot of the tech companies are seeing interest
8:33 pm
rates are going to be raising costs. funds are going to be higher. and so that price to earnings ratios going to be hard to get down a list to get a fishing show. there are some some people think you know what, it's going to be layoffs and morgan county. we really don't think so. we think you're in the bay area. now check is mission critical and companies will just not let go a lot of czech people. these people are hard to find they may have a hiring freeze show for a while company confidence consumer confidence isn't really high right now because you're going to transition trying to work on, you know, getting u.s. inflation number down. >> the 3 things i think people see every day and everyday life that affect how they're feeling about the economy. according a gas station, signs that we all drive by every day you buy at the grocery store and also the wild swings on stock market. what are stay predictions. but what are you feeling about what's happening with those 3 issues? >> well, let's just look at the cost of living. i mean, headline inflation is a high number. it shot. you know, we project this month is going to come out probably about, you
8:34 pm
know, a point, you know, 6%. so it has to peak. but those numbers are looking in the rear. but if you take away headline inflation, if you take away just, you know, you know, food and gas, which of the 2 things that are hard to control other country would be touch of inflation. coming our supply chains that things are getting better. prices are going down even the commodity. while pam, you may notice unit was trading at $120 a barrel last week. now it's trading at that $100 a barrel. so this more more supply coming in and that that happened, you know, you know, week like the mandate will see price point try to come down. but people have to be patient. it's when impatient people overreact and the past money on 2 very patient people. so we have to be patient with this. and, you know, maybe we're going to drive less the more efficient what we're doing, you know, spend less because we have to be cautionary. consumer confidence is down because of all the headline news that's pretty negative. but, you know, we're in good position to weather the storm better than we were in the 70's and the 80's. so you know that that is if the senate effective, we're going to long getting inflation down. if
8:35 pm
government and companies get more supply into the supply chain, that will help get prices down to 2 more of a norm or it may be more come down next year can point to a lot more people into market. yeah, i was going to ask about housing and perspective on history is interesting because, you know, a few months ago, interest rates were down around 3%. >> now there are around during that, you know, the 70's and 80's. we're looking at 15, 20% interest rates on mortgages, right a huge difference. what how do you see mortgage changing as we get through this inflationary hump? well, good gauge for the mortgage rates is the 10 year bond that she and her media interest show banks really, shep. mortgage rates. >> don't want to get stuck there. years out with the really, really low rate when they could be getting a lot more money. so, you know, right now we're pushing the mortgage rate really double, which is carving a lot of people out of the marketplace. but again, in perspective, you know, 5, 6%, interest rate on mortgages is, you know, a lot lower than it had been in history. that doesn't help
8:36 pm
somebody right now who watch by house, especially the bay area because candidate, you know, if you own a house in your refinance to 2 and a half 2% rate. you really don't want to show your house. you want to hold on to it because if you go buy your next house is going to be 6% mortgage rate. so that's kind of keeping the supply of houses down. and that's that's raising the prices up. you know, where million dollar house here, it's going to cost $400,000 nationally. so people have to kind of rethink if they really want to stay in the bay area. if they can afford to stay in the bay area because they could, you know, move to the east coast the florida make, you know, half their salary, but live better because the cost living for a lot lower so that the decision to people have to get really think about. >> so there are a lot of jobs out there. but nonetheless, people are starting to dip into their savings. some are even dipping into their retirement pension accounts and whatnot. the for a one give us some advice on what people should be doing as it pertains to how to stretch their money. what to do? should they dipping into savings? what do you think?
8:37 pm
>> we've been used to 10 years of really free money. interest rates have been low. people have been overspending. you can't do that whenever there's, you know, difficult time. she got to take difficult actions. you have to look really at your own, you know, budget and look at those things that you must pay for, like your food, your rent, those kind of things and all the other things, you know, you really have to cut back on those. i think things are going to be okay. long term. but you just don't know. the economy could many, many different ways. we think it's strong. we think it will do well. but the left to be a lot more conservative their spending. we've got to reduce credit card debt, get ready credit card debt. you've mentioned once before pm with you. you know, if you've got you've got a credit you're going to be directly affected by interest rates. rising. so get rid of that debt. and if you can't do that, switch credit card companies have to give you a lower rate companies to allow you to do that. watch your debt. what your get ready. you know, keep that you never take any money out of your 4 one k plan that money is designated for the future. when your paychecks stopped, that's what you're going to lie on that intial security. so you've got to be really just us here. take the
8:38 pm
tough action. you know, hard to do, but i don't think it's going to be all that long. i think we'll see him play should go down by the end of the year about 6.7%. and then in 2023 will probably training about tree nuts for the reserve. watch it. our supply chain will get better and it will become a lot more economical to live here in the bay area and throughout the rest, united states. that's what hopeful that that's important. yeah, yeah, that that's a great note to end on a george. thank you for your time. we really appreciate there's always the signs for optimism out there. if you look hard enough. >> so appreciate year. we're going to get thank you. thank you, still ahead tonight, at 8 o'clock, the biden administration stepping up efforts to get britney griner released from that russian jail. details on the negotiations and a possible swap. next. the wildfire in amador county continuing to party tonight. the latest update from cal fire as the crews battled the electra fire. >> and clouds moving on shore now. but a little broken out there for tonight. what does that mean for the day ahead tomorrow? we'll talk about that coming up next.
