Im sure in his feeble mind this makes sense.
(NewsOK) White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that the number of people dropping out of the work force, which artificially depresses the unemployment rate, can be regarded as an economic positive.
A lot of that is due to younger people getting more of an education, which is an economic positive, Carney said. He had been asked what would happen when people inevitably raise the unemployment rating with their return to the work force.

Full title: Obama Propaganda Minister Jay Carney: People Leaving The Workforce In Droves An Economic Positive
Many have involuntarily accepted the oath of poverty in support of Obama and his cause. Thousands upon thousands supporting Obama! Truly valiant!
Yeah, getting that masters degree in gay, black womyn's studies is sure to make a big difference when they finally enter the job market.
We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.~Winston Churchill (1874-1965)
“Carney suggested that the focus on the number of people dropping out of the work force is politically motivated.”
Of course it’s politically motivated but it also happens to be a fact and we’re in an election year. I credit this person who asked because we know 99% of the Lame Stream Media won’t.
Love is Hate
Truths are Lies
War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength....
I wonder if enrollment stats show any uptick at all or if Carney is just blowing smoke. Anyhow, even if there is an uptick, I would attribute it to the time tested strategy of young people entering a brutal job market to retreat to the ivory tower for another degree. This looks better than a two or three year gap on the resume. If dad is paying for it, it might be an ok plan. If it means drowning in more debt, maybe not so much.
Advanced study can pay quick dividends if someone with a degree in identity politics and grievance studies parlays it into an advanced barista certificate. Upward mobility for sure.
No. A lot of that is due to the food stamp president enabling 45,000,000 now on food stamps; a lot of that is having the govt writing all kinds of hand-out checks, creating a scarario where 50%+1 are on the government dole.
Talk about a spin. Unbelievable
Carney is 50 years too late.
He should drop out of the work force.
Carney can’t be that stupid. He just meant to say ‘politically positive’. A smaller workforce benefits his Kenyan boss.
These people are shameless.
Carney can be that stupid because he has been taught to be that stupid - unquestioning, always obeying, always lying with a straight face, always smiling like a robot. Oh, this looks and sounds like one of Hitler’s boys, Joseph Goebbels.
I thought Carney’s predecessor was bad - a lying little shit whose name I have fortunately forgotten - but this twerp wins the Darwin Prize for Reverse Evolution.
I can’t even picture this little prick in Nam. He’d last about a minute before one of our patriots would have wasted him and done humanity a favor.
I met VC and PAVN soldiers who had more integrity than Carney. What does that say about Obama? (You can’t print it here, unfortunately).
I don’t think young people can afford to return to, or even initially enter, schools nowadays; even with the borrowing, if there is little hope of landing any kind of meaningful work, the schooling makes no sense.
Believe me, if there is a “hot” major right now, a lot of time and effort is being sent to have the work in question done to Asia; certainly specializing in it 2 to 4 years down the road won’t be much use. If the jobs are still here they’ll be done by H1-Bs.
