Instead of measuring the GDP which doesn't measure shit
They go by the GDP increase which by the way govt spending constitutes 18% of it, so no shit sherlock of course it looks like our economy is growing.

GDP does not measure standards of living it does not measure inflation it does not measure education or healthcare it doesn't measure quality of job growth.

These fucks outta converse with recent college grads and I don't mean people with BA's in basket weaving or something I mean especially those of us who really busted our asses for degrees in business and science.
