Even the Tooth Fairy Knows It’s a Depression
You sure don’t see too many idiots on TV talking about green shoots anymore… whatever happened to that?
After two years of “recovery”, does anyone see anything like a recovery in any of the unemployment figures (the blue line being reality and the red line being the government propaganda)?
Oh, that’s okay, they say, it’s just one of those pesky “jobless recoveries”. It’s like the 2008 Detroit Lions who went 0-16. They weren’t bad, they were just winless champions.
Pay Attention to Government Statistics At Your Own Risk
Feel sorry for anyone who still pays attention to any government economic statistics. It is pure, unadulterated lies and propaganda, plain and simple. You’d be better off listening to a financial adviser who uses the annual Tooth Fairy survey as a gauge of economic strength.
Visa does an annual survey of what the Tooth Fairy left American children in exchange for their teeth. In 2010 the amount was $3 on average. In 2011, it is down to $2.60. A 13.3% year-over-year decrease in tooth transactions. That is a much better indication of what is going on in the real economy.
