From a post at Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis, an interesting observation from looking at numbers posted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Those are the folks who tell us that the unemployment rate has fallen to 8.3% and that the economy is recovering.
In the last year, the civilian population rose by 3,565,000. Yet the labor force only rose by 1,145,000. Those not in the labor force rose by 2,420,000.
And I have a bridge in Brooklyn upon which I can make you such a deal.
