The new bogus narrative for why the economy is missing in action, is because worker productivity is TOO LOW. As usual, the truth is the exact opposite. But we can't face the truth because that would require admitting that the de facto Globalized Corporate pseudo-economy is inherently flawed. And whatever happens, that truth must never be admitted, because that would imperil the almighty status quo: aka. Walmart heaven.
History will not be kind to the generation that laid itself off between episodes of American Idolatry.
