Even in the ‘nightmare scenario,’ everything gets better, better, better.
This chart says a lot about American politics.
Also, remember that the ‘actual unemployment rate’ … isn’t.

The indefinite detention provision of the NDAA was struck down by a judge recently for being “facially unconstitutional,” after Administration lawyers could not assure the judge that the U.S. government would not indefinitely detain peaceful dissidents. Judge Forrest noted: “At the hearing on this motion, the government was unwilling or unable to state that these plaintiffs would not be subject to indefinite detention under [section] 1021. Plaintiffs are therefore at risk of detention, of losing their liberty, potentially for many years.” Who voted for this steaming sack of authoritarian anti-Constitutional garbage in the first place?

Pretty good little essay here from Joe Stiglitz.
Europe’s single-minded focus on austerity is a result of a misdiagnosis of its problems. Greece overspent, but Spain and Ireland had fiscal surpluses and low debt-to-GDP ratios before the crisis. Giving lectures about fiscal prudence is beside the point. Taking the lectures seriously – even adopting tight budget frameworks – can be counterproductive. Regardless of whether Europe’s problems are temporary or fundamental – the eurozone, for example, is far from an “optimal” currency area, and tax competition in a free-trade and free-migration area can erode a viable state – austerity will make matters worse.
Just listening to the news you’d think Spain and Ireland were deeply in debt prior to the fraudtastic financial crisis, but no.
