There just isn’t a lot of good news here.

The middle class is still struggling for something tangible, but things remain pretty frustrating for most people.

It could actually feel like things are going in reverse… and that each piece of economic interaction squeezes just a little bit harder.

via the Washington Examiner:

A new report on the economy finds that productivity growth is at a 50-year low and that much of the positive talk about the nation’s financial situation in the last election, much of it coming from the administration, was a lie.

The report from the U.S. Council on Competitiveness and Gallup finds that for many, the economy is in reverse despite claims that there is an active recovery ongoing, complete with new jobs.

The report makes clear that Obama Administration propaganda and media claims that a recovery is underway were carefully-coordinated lies… quite simply, there is no recovery and things are getting worse all the time for America’s swelling numbers of working poor:

The study finds there is no recovery. Since 2007, U.S. GDP per capita growth has been 1,” according to Gallup Chairman Jim Clifton.

[…] “productivity growth is in a serious multi-decade-long slump that is dangerously close to stalling completely.”

The executive summary hits the worst of the news.

“The people are right. The economy is not working well. But the problems did not start with the Great Recession. For decades, the nation’s income, measured as GDP, has barely grown overall; on a per capita basis, median household income peaked in 1999; the subjective general health status of Americans has declined, even adjusting for the aging population; disability rates are higher; learning has stagnated; fewer new businesses are being launched; more workers are involuntarily stuck in part-time jobs or out of the labor force entirely; and the income ranks of grown children are no less tied to the income ranks of their parents,” said the report titled No Recovery — An Analysis of Long-Term U.S. Productivity Decline.
