Bombshell: The US Spent $20 MILLION Per Job Created From ’08 Onward

Since the election [of Barack Obama] in 2008, the financial media has been proclaiming that the US was in a “recovery.” This argument was used to justify the insane monetary policy of the Federal Reserve, which maintained ZIRP for seven years and spent over $3 trillion in QE.

Well, it turns out there was no recovery to speak of when it comes to jobs. According to a report posted on Friday, an incredible 93% of ALL jobs created since 2008 were in fact… based on accounting gimmicks.

Yes, 93% as in more than 9 out of 10.

The implications of this are astonishing…

First of all, the “recovery” was made based on a spreadsheet, not reality.

We’ve long suspected this. After all, how can the unemployment rate be just 4.3 percent (essentially full employment) when some 102 MILLION Americans (1 out of 3) are not working?

Second of all, the US doubled its debt load during this time period. Previously I’d noted that when you account for all of the debt added to the public’s balance sheet form ’08 onward, the US had spent something like $900K per job created.

But now, it turns out that even 93% of those so-called jobs were fake. So the US spent… $20 MILLION per job created.

Yes. $20 MILLION. Per job. Created.

Keep your job and give me the cash!

And that was a so-called recovery which prompted stocks to break out to new all-time highs!

A Crash is coming… and it’s going to horrific.

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
