Jobless numbers


  1. The Real Unemployment Rate and that doesn't even count the discouraged and underemployed.

    Here is a more accurate number.

  2. To quote from the first link i posted above, "It won't surprise anyone that as of December, the real implied unemployment rate was 11.4% (final chart) - basically where it has been ever since 2009 - and at 2.9% delta to reported, represents the widest divergence to reported data since the early 1980s. And because we know this will be the next question, extending this lunacy, America will officially have no unemployed, when the Labor Force Participation rate hits 58.5%, which should be just before the presidential election."

    How convenient.
