The "Beveridge Curve" predicts unemployment to recover by 2014.

I've never heard of the Beveridge Curve before, but here:



You can read about it more here, by Timothy Taylor.

Taylor writes that the Curve offers several insights to the current scenario:
  • Job openings are increasing, but the unemployment rate is not.
  • There are threey key reasons for this: "a mismatch between the skills of unemployed workers and the available jobs; incentives from extended unemployment insurance that have slowed the incentive to take available jobs; and heightened uncertainty over the future course of the economy and economic policy"
  • These three factors have a historical tendency of correcting themselves over time.
  • By early 2014, the curve will have righted itself, and unemployment will drop like a rock.
Well, here's hoping.

I don't see how that's relevant to anything.

And you'll have to define "fine and dandy." I assume you mean 100% fine with rising gas prices in their current trajectory, without reservation?

I would have made the stimulus package about $1 trillion based off what I was reading at the time, if I were emperor of the universe.

I think going radically far from that either way would either be too little, or too much.

He's either an idiot that has no idea what he's doing, or he's doing exactly what he meant to. You can't have it both ways...

So that's what you call Obama either doing what he wants or not knowing what he's doing?

I guess I left out the part where Republicans, especially while powerless, have impeded his every desire...

Just to be certain, you are arguing that the economy is worse now than it was during the recession in 2009, right?

That's what you're arguing?
