The Real Employment Picture

In the earlier days of this blog I'd go into length about various economic statistics and why they're more relevant than some of the headline statistics.  I realized people were falling asleep, so I just do a quick and dirty version instead.  SO here it is.

Employment to population ratio.

Specifically, this measures the percent of the population that is working.  Today about 58% of the people work.

Translated into English this means there's very roughly 1 parasite for 1 worker.

In short if you are working, you are not just paying for yourself, but paying for another person.

There is one way, however, to make sure you are not supporting a parasite.  You just have to Enjoy the Decline!
