Food banks get lesson in economics

Arizona food banks head into the holiday season having to buy more food, at higher prices, for more clients, with fewer donations to help them pay for it.

When they can get food at all.

“We have had to purchase more food to be able to keep up with demand and of course, we’re not able to purchase all of that food at the prices that we need as well,” said Angie Rodgers, Arizona Food Bank president.

The struggles are the result of a perfect storm of events as the holidays approach: Soaring inflation has driven more people to food banks, which have to pay more to feed them, and lingering supply chain issues have been made worse by a disease that wiped out more than 50 million birds for poultry farmers, 8 million of which were turkeys.

Inflation is at a 40-year high, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, with the Phoenix area posting the highest inflation rate in the nation for metro areas over the last year, at 12.1%. While fuel and housing were a large part of the increase, food prices were 12.6% higher this October than last, the latest month for which data was available.

Those higher prices mean more people are having to turn to food pantries to help make ends meet, a trend officials expect will continue through the holiday season. Midwest Food Bank – which distributes to local food pantries – said it expects to see as many as 50,000 more people seeking help over this holiday season than last.

“Every month, we have seen an increase in the number of people that we serve weekly and going into December, we are assuming because we’ve seen October and November increasing that December is going to be high as well,” said Janet Bean, treasurer for the West Valley Community Food Pantry.

The higher prices are hitting the food banks, too. The Arizona Farm Bureau estimates that a traditional Thanksgiving dinner will be 44.9% higher this year, with the cost for a 16-pound turkey alone jumping from $19.40 to $32.02. Everything on the farm bureau’s list was higher this year, from cranberries to stuffing.

The spike in turkey prices is being blamed on an outbreak of avian flu, which has led to the deaths or slaughter of millions of poultry that have been exposed, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“The supply of turkeys is lower and the cost is expected to be higher. So we were not able to procure a huge amount of them like we have in other years,” said Merliee Baptiste, executive director of Midwest Food Bank Arizona.

“We are having to pivot a little bit to find something that would still work for folks for the holidays,” Baptiste said.

The Paradise Valley Community Food Bank purchased turkeys and other holiday staples three months ago to avoid supply chain disruptions, said Kay Norris, executive director. But Rodgers said even ordering in time hasn’t always worked because of ongoing supply chain issues.

“We have seen loads canceled and that means the truck did not arrive. We ordered the food and it did not arrive,” Rodgers said.

On top of all that, food banks said they are seeing fewer donations in these inflationary times.

Norris said that for the first time in 30 years, the Paradise Valley Community Food Bank had to send out 1,500 fundraising letters soliciting donations that typically flow through the door.

“Our donations, food donations, and cash donations are not quite keeping up with the increase in our service numbers,” Norris said.

Officials are quick to remind people that Arizona offers a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for donations to charitable organizations, worth up to $400 for individuals or $800 for married couples, according to the Arizona Department of Revenue.

They also note that there are other ways to give. For those who cannot make a donation of food or cash this holiday season, food banks suggest starting a food drive or volunteering at your local food pantry.

“If there are people that have some extra time, whether it’s during the holidays or throughout the entire year, we really welcome them,” Baptiste said. “That’s equally important as some of the food or financial donations that they might have.”

Despite the struggles, officials said they are still optimistic that the holiday spirit will push people to donate, citing the typical spike in donations during the holidays.

“We’re still hopeful for a strong holiday donation season both in terms of food and funds … we’re hopeful that people still remember that there are people struggling to put food on their table,” said Rodgers.

He was among the leading thinkers to explain the economic shocks of the 1970s, and his work was critical to the supply-side economics of the ’80s.

Edward C. Prescott, whose work explaining the economic shocks of the 1970s catalyzed new ways of thinking about fiscal and monetary policy, a breakthrough that earned him a Nobel economics prize, died on Nov. 6 at a care facility in Paradise Valley, Ariz. He was 81.

His son, Ned Prescott, said the cause was cancer.

Dr. Prescott was a leading member of the generation of economic thinkers who in the 1970s confronted the collapse of Keynesian models, which had dominated policymaking since the 1930s but proved unable to account for the decade’s high inflation and low growth.

Keynesian economics is largely focused on demand, changes in which, it posits, cause the business cycle to fluctuate. But Dr. Prescott, working with his frequent collaborator Finn Kydland, asked whether the supply side — like energy costs, and especially technological progress — could be just as important, if not more so.

In fact, their work, especially in a seminal 1982 paper, demonstrated that supply-side shifts explained the vast majority of changes in the business cycle since the end of World War II. Their research helped ignite decades of policies, beginning under President Ronald Reagan, that aimed to reduce taxes and regulation in order to maximize supply-side efficiency.

John Maynard Keynes himself might have approved: As he once said, “Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist.”

And to be fair, Keynes didn’t have the advanced computer modeling systems that made Dr. Prescott’s work possible, and that gave him and Dr. Kydland perspective on the economy as a dynamic system.

That understanding of dynamism related to their second critical insight, regarding what economists call time inconsistency. As they explained in a 1977 paper, politicians tend to set long-term policies and goals but then undercut them for short-term expediency.

They pointed, as one example, to public flood insurance. A government might declare that an area is too risky to build on, and refuse to insure it. But once people do build there, politicians are likely to cave in to constituent pressure — and, in fact, people will build because they expect politicians to cave.

This credibility problem was particularly problematic for Dr. Prescott and Dr. Kydland when it came to central banks. The banks’ directors might make low inflation their primary long-term goal. But if they are subject to political pressure, they are likely to shift priorities to higher employment, even if it means higher inflation.

And because the economy is made up of individual actors — people, companies, governments — the results are dynamic, making it difficult to use the same policy tools in different situations.

“Macro policy is a game, not a control problem as we had thought,” Dr. Prescott wrote in an autobiographical sketch after winning the 2004 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, sharing it with Dr. Kydland.

Therefore, he argued, governments should set long-term rules and keep to them — by, for example, insulating central banks from political pressure and setting multiyear budgets.

Both of those insights came in the late 1970s. Dr. Prescott returned to public prominence in 2004, the same year he won the Nobel, with a paper exploring why Americans worked longer hours than Europeans.

Unlike other economists, who offered explanations that focused on cultural differences, Dr. Prescott argued that it was all about taxes, and he offered empirical data to prove it. In the 1950s, when taxes were lower in France than in the United States, French workers put in more hours than Americans did. But that reversed in the coming decades, as tax rates rose in France and dropped in the United States.

Dr. Prescott’s positions led him to endorse a number of conservative policies, and to attack liberal ones. In 2004 he joined 367 other economists in signing a letter criticizing a proposal by Senator John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, to roll back tax cuts on high-income earners.

“The idea that you can increase taxes and stimulate the economy is pretty damn stupid,” Dr. Prescott told reporters.

He was not without his critics. Paul Krugman, the Times columnist who won the economics Nobel in 2008, called Dr. Prescott’s work “foolish” in its emphasis on supply-side factors in the business cycle.

More pragmatic economists, Mr. Krugman wrote, “found the evidence that recessions are, in fact, demand-driven too compelling to reject.”

Nevertheless, in awarding Dr. Prescott and Dr. Kydland its 2004 prize, the Nobel committee wrote: “They offered a new and operational paradigm for macroeconomic analysis based on microeconomic foundations. Kydland and Prescott’s work has transformed academic research in economics, as well as the practice of macroeconomic analysis and policymaking.”

Edward Christian Prescott was born on Dec. 26, 1940, in Glens Falls, N.Y., a city on the Hudson River north of Albany. His interest in economics sprouted early, after he observed his father, William Prescott, an industrial engineer, manage factory operations. His mother, Mathilde (Helwig) Prescott, was a librarian and homemaker.

Edward played football in high school and college, even though he was physically slight, and worked summers as a golf caddy and in a nearby paper mill.

He entered Swarthmore College planning to study physics on the way to a career in rocket science, but he came to see the school’s department as insufficiently theoretical. He switched to mathematics and graduated in 1963.

He received a master’s degree in operations research from the Case Institute of Technology, in Cleveland, which merged a few years later with Western Reserve University, and a doctorate in economics from the Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1967, the same year the school merged with the Mellon Institute to form Carnegie Mellon University.

He married Janet Dale Simpson in 1965. Along with their son Ned, she survives him, as do their daughter, Wynn Prescott; another son, Andrew; his brother, William; his sister, Prudence Robertson; and six grandchildren.

Dr. Prescott taught at the University of Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon and the University of Minnesota before moving to Arizona State University in 2003. In 1981, he became a consultant for the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.

At one point he almost took a job at the University of Chicago, but decided against it because his son Ned was a graduate student in the university’s economics department, and he didn’t want to run the risk of a conflict of interest. Ned Prescott now works for the Cleveland Fed.

ASU alum expands senior care business to Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Fountain Hills

After opening Right at Home Arcadia in 2019, Christian Slagle has expanded his business footprint in the community and will begin offering in-home senior care services throughout Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Fountain Hills.Right at Home employs professionally trained caregivers to provide care and assistance to seniors and adults with disabilities who wish to remain in the comfort and safety of their own home or current living arrangement.

After opening Right at Home Arcadia in 2019, Christian Slagle has expanded his business footprint in the community and will begin offering in-home senior care services throughout Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Fountain Hills.

Right at Home employs professionally trained caregivers to provide care and assistance to seniors and adults with disabilities who wish to remain in the comfort and safety of their own home or current living arrangement. With more than 600 locations in eight countries, Right at Home has become one of the world’s largest in-home care franchises.

Slagle moved to Phoenix to attend Arizona State University where he achieved a bachelor’s degree in business marketing. After graduating, he began a career in the travel industry. He worked for America West Airlines, which eventually became American Airlines. Slagle left America West in 1992 but remained in the travel industry until 2018.

A former co-worker first introduced him to Right at Home, but it wasn’t until his dad got sick that Slagle realized the true need for the services that Right at Home offered.

“I watched how hard it was for my parents to move out of their home and uproot their lives due to care needs and thought, there has to be a better way,” Slagle said.

Now, he is making a difference in the community and helping seniors age safely in place with the expanding of Right at Home into Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Fountain Hills.

“As the baby boomer generation reaches its senior years, we’re seeing an increased demand for quality in-home health care services across the country, and the Phoenix area market is no exception,” said Right at Home President and CEO Margaret Haynes. “These are fantastic communities, and Christian and his team are dedicated to supporting the many families here.”

When the COVID-19 crisis struck in 2020, Right at Home was quickly deemed an essential business, making the brand one of the few businesses to not only maintain its existing customer base, but to also take on new clients throughout the pandemic.

Now, the brand is leveraging that momentum to bring its best-in-class in-home health care services to families in new markets across the country, including Scottsdale and surrounding areas.

1-acre lot in Paradise Valley sells for record $3.5 million

In the midst of a newly challenging real estate market, Frank Aazami and Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty continue its streak of breaking local records with the sale of a Paradise Valley lot.

It should be no surprise that economic forces have created some recent obstacles in the housing market but Frank Aazami and Arizona’s Luxury Leader Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty has managed to cut through those obstacles by transacting properties and making robust sales regardless of what is happening in our economy.

This is demonstrated perfectly by Aazami’s sale of 5405 E McDonald Dr. 1, Paradise Valley, which closed Wednesday, July 20th for the record selling price of $3,500,000. The property encompasses just over an acre at 46,910-square-feet, and the selling price represents a record high transaction price for undeveloped lots in the town and all of Arizona ranging up to even 60,000-square-feet. Aazami represented the seller.

For some added context, local transaction data for Paradise Valley between 40,000 and 60,000-square-feet was researched. 10 such lots were sold in 2022, with the most expensive price being $3.4 million in January. 24 such lots were sold with a high-water mark of $2.9 million, and 33 such lots sold in 2020, with the priciest closing for $2.525 million.

Aazami, who is no stranger to record sales says this is further proof the luxury sector is still strong and when properly marketed, new records can still be achieved.

“Even though the number of units was in decline, just as all luxury goods around the Globe, the values for these premium goods increased. So you must be wondering what’s Pending or Under Contact still in this category?” asked Aazami. “The correct answer is – None Under Contract or Pending to Close. The sale at 5405 E McDonald Drive broke the record high at $3.5million and it’s all by design, never by luck. In fact, we searched this category’s all time recorded sale on ARMLS; this was it. We welcome your call to find out how we successfully accomplish these transactions.”

Aazami added this shovel-ready Candelaria Designed property site, and its brilliant views of Camelback, Mummy and the Phoenix Mountain preserve make this an incredibly compelling location for a one-of-a-kind estate. The location is ideal for both entertainment and exercise as Sanctuary Resort, Paradise Valley Country Club, and the Mountain Shadows event center are within a short walk, as are the Echo Canyon and Phoenix Preserve hikes. Also, the property sits within a 15–20-minute drive from both the Sky Harbor and Scottsdale Airports, making it a convenient and ideal location.

While economic headwinds may make for a rocky ride in real estate for some, Aazami and Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty show why it still continues to transact at such an incredible pace; there is simply no substitute for the incredible, bespoke properties that buyers and sellers routinely trust it with.
