Mark Steyn calls this “the dead parrot” economy, after the Monty Python “Dead Parrot” sketch. Despite the apologists for the Flatline Administration constantly ranting about how the economy is really and truly out of a recession, (No, this time we really mean it! Really!) businesses still aren’t hiring. This report shows why, and with what suspicious timing, the jobs aren’t there.
“It’s not pining, it’s passed on! It’s rung down the curtain and joined the Choir Invisible! This, is an ex-economy!”
