Nothing to see here folks! Move along...

The labor participation rate has conveniently continued to crash since the administration took over enabling the unemployment rate to be lower than reality!
This administration and the economy has been the recipient of 0% rates since becoming President...the recipient of $4 trillion-plus of printed money here and depending on the abacus you are using, $15-20 trillion of printed money around the globe...leading to a responding market to all the printed money creating a faux wealth effect that now goes into reverse. Very simply, the easiest monetary policy in the history of time!
Deflation almost everywhere except for your healthcare premiums and deductibles.
GDP under 1%.
The Baltic Dry Index hitting another new all-time record low.
U.S. factory orders that have now dropped for 14 months in a row.
Orders for class 8 trucks (the big ones) declining a measly 48 percent from a year ago.
Junk bonds continuing to crash!.
The Restaurant Performance Index falling to the lowest level since 2008.
A major slowdown in rail traffic!
Corporate profit margins peaking during the third quarter of 2014 and heading lower since.
Food stamp or near all-time highs.
Homelessness...not good!.
Welfare spending...a measly $1 trillion/year through over 80 different federal programs

Well, the amount of people collecting unemployment went down though!

I guess we just produce so much so fast that we don't need to be producing things all the time anymore.

How about a new system for finance and wealth?

How about we put the United States corporation on the sting exchange and give every American x amount of shares of said corporation and see if people take more stock in how choices are made and for what purpose.

a reply to: onequestion

Republicans tried to give the general public ownership of corporations with the attempt to privatize a small part of social security. The Democrats didn't want the general public to have access to the wealth created by companies. That, or they didn't like the idea of losing control over us.

Standard Obama gerrymandering of statistics for his agenda.

This guy is better than Houdini.
