Gallup CEO Calls 5.6% Unemployment Rate "The Big Lie": What's a Realistic Unemployment

• http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com

And it is. I have talked about this for years, but perhaps it would be interesting to hear the same thing from a CEO of a big agency. I picked this story up from ZeroHedge. Emphasis in italics is mine.

Clifton first calls the unemployment rate "extremely misleading" but later on calls it "The Big Lie", and that is the title of his Linked-In article as well.

From Gallup CEO, Jim Clifton ....

Here's something that many Americans -- including some of the smartest and most educated among us -- don't know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we're hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is "down" to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

I wouldn't couldn't "The Big Lie" but "a big lie" this is not neither a unique much less the biggest lie the Fascist is feeding to its serfs. However, it is a lie just the same and one that makes the Obama administration's nose grow every time it tells it. In fact, at the rate they're going, by the time the Fascist/Communist/Muslim/Socialist/Kenyan leaves the throne, there will be zero unemployment in the US while millions of people have no work.
