15. A predictable result because of the unemployment trend

As more people go back to work, the spending on unemployment goes down and the revenues - from taxes on the new employees goes up. Also, as more people go back to work, they start spending more, leading to more employment.

(There is also likely some impact because the states where you can collect extended unemployment are far fewer. This helps the numbers, but the long term unemployed are suffering more because of it.)

I wonder if this could be used to reduce the amount of spending cuts required.

This trend will also make it seem as though the President in office made the economy better.
