    I wasn’t looking at the soon to be adjusted unemployment number but the 300k who left the workforce. That’s greater than the number of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan at the height of the wars. It is like 3/4 of the population of New Orleans moving out in a month. It is as if the city I live in disappeared. We are in the era of big numbers but this is scary and I can’t believe the media isn’t expounding on its significance.
