  •  That's why the LPR is important to point out (9+ / 0-)

    People will try to tell you as they did me that it's all just old people retiring and it's a normal trend. Nope. If you look at the line from 1979 to now it is a big slope and now we are back down. Interest rates were on the rise back then intentionally to fight inflation so it's BS to say it's normal now with ZIRP now.

    The employment population ratio shows microscopic change from 2010 and is effectively unchanged. Those two metrics are important as is this diary.

    Thank you, Pheobe.

    I don't negotiate grand bargains with deficit terrorists!
