Good point. The only reason I prefer shadowstats 24% over the wall street advisor’s 37% is that 40% of the people I know aren’t unemployed. But there certainly are some that are unemployed and some are barely subsisting. And my circle of contacts is rather limited and I live in an area that is doing pretty well economically. I would think if it’s truly 37% we’d have demonstrations in the street.
24% are getting by because of help from family and friends, government help, dissaving, etc.
I would think if its truly 37% wed have demonstrations in the street
Take away their food stamps and welfare checks, then stop all the people from Fraudulently collecting SSDI, Force these people to go to SOUP KITCHENS and CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS, like the old days before LBJ’s “War on the Family” Began, and there will be.
