The Master Media Manipulator Tricked You Again

New York Times reporter observes the wallet inspector failed to return her wallet yet again.


The Great Shirk

Even if you were someone who believed - and trust me, even most of the "good guys" believed this - that the financial crisis was caused by poor defenseless banks being conned by tens of millions of borrowers who couldn't afford to take out those mortgages, it didn't follow that the resulting recession and unemployment which impacted a lot of other people were the fault of those other people. Still unemployment went from fuemployment (lazy people enjoying their vacations!) to a "skills gap" (stupid people getting the wrong education) to a "worker mobility problem" (lazy people unwilling to move to where the jobs where) to, finally, a period of people just preferring to play video games over work.

This will happen again.

Gotta Mock Them

We're going to move from rosy predictions about the future, to denial about the reality, to a collective "wellwhatchagonnado," to "Actually, the natural rate of unemployment is 17%."

Unemployment levels were seen as insanely high at the beginning of the Great Recession. And then they barely dropped. And then they weren't seen as insane at all anymore. And then they weren't seen as a problem at all. 10% unemployment is going to look hilariously minor compared to what we have now.

They Shape Of Things To Come

My prediction! That's the unemployment rate against time. Invert it for jobs over time. Not a V!

How local media covers things because facts don't exist anymore.

Just Give People Money

So always trying to target things to supposedly worthy people just adds unnecessary complexity, leaves "deserving" people out, and makes everyone mad because their neighbor is getting more than they are? Wow who knew.
