These charts tell the whole story folks.... and this is data from the Fed. Get ready for another long 4 years. It's plain to see that this economy is running on fumes and that things will be stagnant for a while.







The unemployment rate has dropped from the peak, yes, but that is just an optical thing. A lot of folks have dropped out of the labor force and are no longer seeking jobs, which means they are no longer represented in the unemployment rate #'s.
