For this generation of “leaders”, never has The Gravity of the unemployment cycle been more glaring. And never is a long time too.
So no matter what your money (or the many who have none of that or a job) did yesterday, what are you going to do today? Tomorrow’s US Unemployment rate could be 17-20%. Does the % matter? Will that make everything about the future “better” off the bottom?
