New Reichert Report Updates 1970s Misery Index

Unprecedented depths of economic despair shown in Colorado, nationwide

Lakewood, Colo. (June 22, 2022) — Economist Tim Reichert, a Republican congressional candidate in Colorado’s 7th District, has updated and expanded the 1970s Misery Index that was crafted to measure suffering and economic distress among America’s working and middle class.

The results of Reichert’s extensive new research show that high inflation, combined with drug and alcohol use and rising crime rates, have Coloradans and all Americans facing unprecedented depths of despair.

The research confirms Reichert’s observations on the deteriorating state of the nation’s economy, and reinforces his motivation to run for Congress.

The higher the index climbs, the more miserable the circumstances consumers face.
