Bill Tatro believes that before you trust any number issued by the government, you should probably have your head examined by several mental health professionals. Every number issued by the government is part of an agenda to make the populace feel better about things, even though they know that things are not getting better. Nowhere is this truer than with the unemployment numbers. The government says it’s around 5.6 percent, but the real number is much higher, just look at the labor force participation rate and you’ll understand why. It’s hovering at generational lows and keeps going lower. This is a sure sign that recovery is not right around the corner.
