    "The economy" is not stagnant.

    GDP has grown in every quarter starting in 2009, and was just revised upward for last quarter: http://www.forbes.com/...

    Just look at how corporate profits continue to skyrocket: http://research.stlouisfed.org/...

    "The economy" is doing just fine, thanks. The problem is that more and more Americans are superfluous to "the economy."  

    How can that be? Nobel winner Stiglitz explains--offshoring & automation--and that long-term those will get worse, not better: http://www.vanityfair.com/...

    "The true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals." - Barack Obama
