I'm beginning to think that this is an intentional conversion of the economy to a 30-hour work week, ala France. With office and factory automation eliminating workers, and with the bulk of the workforce too ignorant to do anything else, this is how liberals respond, spreading "job equality." In a sense, "stimulating the economy" with interest rates at virtually zero has made it easier to replace labor with capital.
It is definitely intentional. Whether they meant these results is the question. lol.
