    The public sector does very little but create debt as evidenced by the 3.8 trillion dollar Federal Govt. You should be quite informed on massive govt. as evidenced by your own state. It is the role of the Federal Govt. to create the atmosphere for private sector growth but not in your state or the liberal utopias wherever they are

    It has to do with massive government spending, not the private sector, ending the Great Depression.

    I know how to read BLS reports, and they don't report on anyone collecting unemployment benefits. I suggest you learn to read them to know that the official unemployment numbers have never ever been based on eligibility or receipt of benefits.

    My number comes from the Employment and Training Administration, the part of DOL that reports UI claims http://www.dol.gov/ui/data.pdf page three gives the number collecting from all programs.

    Your 20 million is still way off, even counting tot a l unemployed…Hell, it's higher than the total number who say they want a job, regardless of whether they're actually doing something or could accept a job if offered.
    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.

    How old were you during the Great Depression? It was FDR that prolonged the Great Depression and it was the war that ended it

    There were 9.7 million unemployed last month and another 700,000 discouraged that were discouraged. In 2010 that number exceeded 16 million which is a lot closer to 20 million than your 2.8 million number

    It's not?

    this has nothing to do with Marxism; but merely socialism via our social contract.
