Announcing the 2013 finalists in “The World’s Most Dubious Recovery” Contest:
1. Barack Obama
For his “economic recovery” which is, by his admission, now into it’s fifth year. Unfortunately it has proved to be a “jobless recovery.” With 92 million Americans now “officially” deemed to be out of the workforce, we have a labor force participation rate of just 62.8% – the lowest since 1978.
With only 74,000 jobs created last month, the fewest in five years, the economy managed to create just 1 job for every 5 people who abandoned the American Dream and gave up all HOPE of ever finding a job.
The good news: with such a miserably low labor participation rate we’ve taken so many people out of the equation that we can now boast the lowest “unemployment” rate in 5 years! I know! It does seem like mathemagicals™!
Or, next candidate,
2. Fidel Castro
So take our poll: who do you think deserves this year’s “Most Dubious Recovery Award?
Keep in mind that Fidel is a former winner in the category “Most Dubious Caribbean Island Economic Recovery” for establishing “Promise Zones” to provide “aid in cutting through red tape to get access to existing resources.” Here are some of the results that won him the award:
On Big Guy’s behalf, I should note that having 92 million people out of the labor participation pool means that nearly a third of all Americans are now unproductive! That means we may well be on the way to becoming a “Third” World Country too! So remember that as you cast your vote(s).
