  •  True, but having what we have now, (4+ / 0-)

    16%+ in U6, plus, what? ten to twenty million just banished from the books for having been unemployed too long or never...

    5 years now, and cure for the situation never even mentioned as something to look for by the Beltway...

    This is a "catch the whole planet in the trap" kind of unemployment and low-wagery. An order of magnitude greater, and more total, than ever seen before.

    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.

      We are in the midst of a strange and perfect storm -- the end of the industrial age, and the technologically age being the last "age" we are likely to see. Unbelievably grotesque over-population killing the planet because people simply cannot stop breeding. At the same time hovering on the edge of the reality where we don't need all people to work. Only a few. Living a nice life is a human right and will soon have nothing to do with  work at all. Current humans have a hard time coping with these emerging realities.

      Denial is a drug.
