Charts Show Unemployment Situation Reality

Unemployment

Of all the many banners being waved around the world by disgruntled protesters from Chile to Australia the one that reads, “We Are the 99%” is the catchiest. It is purposefully vague, but it is also underpinned by some solid economics. A report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO)… confirms the contentions of the 99% that a system that works well for the very richest has delivered returns on labour that are disappointing for everyone else and that the people at the top have made out like bandits over the past few decades, and that now everyone else must pick up the bill. [Take a look at the graph which shows just how unequal income distribution is in the USA.]

Mitt Romney Slams Saving Auto Industry Jobs

Auto Jobs Rebound

Mitt Romney [GOP frontrunner this week] bashed the Obama administration for the wildly successful bailout of the auto industry that saved 100,000s of jobs. As Jonathan Alter points out, if he’s the nominee, he can kiss Michigan goodbye. The Dems will use that clip over and over and over to hammer him. As President Obama said, [W]e decided to do more than rescue this industry from a crisis. We decided to help it retool for a new age, and that’s what we’re doing all across the country – we’re making sure America can out-build, out-innovate, and out-compete the rest of the world.

Duchamp
