19. their rosy numbers are lies
the economy has been reset at a level about 50% of what it was five years ago

they simply eliminate all the disaffected from the statistics

My "economy" is in full melt-down mode. Nearly all my friends have far less money now, a lower standard of living, work multiple jobs in order to barely hang on (or are either grossly underemployed or full-on unemployed), and are so deeply in debt that the new bankruptcy corporate protection laws are knives at their economic throats.

The middle class is dying just as surely as the glaciers in Montana.
