Unemployment Rate Doublethink

January 13, 2014 by  

War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength, the unemployment rate dropped to 6.7 percent so more people are working, the recovery is full bore.

It’s all doublethink. It’s the new normal. Call it cognitive dissonance.

Only a piddling 74,000 jobs were added to the workforce in December. That falls far short of even enough to keep up with population growth. Yet the Bureau of Labor Statistics says unemployment fell three-tenths of 1 percent.

BLS unemployment numbers are as phony as President Barack Obama’s birth narrative. For every job added, five people left the workforce. There are now 92 million Americans of working age outside the workforce.

But we are in a recovery aren’t we? After all, look at the stock market. More cognitive dissonance.

The stock market is also phony. It’s propped up by funny money: the $85 billion pumped into the banks every month.

There is no recovery. There are no jobs. There is only doublethink.
