No, and it doesn't say that in your link, either.In short..
Labor force = those employed.
Labor Force is the number of Employed plus the number of Unemployed. Where did you learn math where you can have something in the numerator that's not in the denominator?
Stop! Where are you getting that definition????? Certainly not from your link.Number of those unemployed = those receiving unemployment benefits.
Why are you giving a link that doesn't support your claims? Not that any link could, since your claim is false.
I showed you the official definition. I showed you in bold where it said UI benefits were not a factor.

Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
So let see, did I cover the Reagan spending increases caused employment/GDP gains?
Yes, I did.
So what do you have now?
