US Has To Create 250K Jobs A Month For 66 Months To Return To December 2007 Unemployment By End Of Obama's Second Term

Tyler Durden's picture

It was difficult rerunning this chart with a straight face, make that near impossible, but here are the results. Following the most recent NFP disappointment, the simple math indicates that for the US to return to its December 2007 unemployment, when factoring in the natural growth of the labor force of 90k people a month, the economy will need to add 250k jobs a month for the next 66 months or until the end of Obama's now very implausible second term. Then again, considering what the alternatives are, we can guarantee that the 2012-2016 period in terms of job creation will definitely not look like what is presented on the chart below.

I'm bullish for reality peaking through the cracks at a more rapid pace.

Government stimulus does take a while to cause inflation but what if the Fed is buying stocks directly? Very little delay in that scenario, right?

jus_lite_reading's picture

Ben was trying to create inflation without actually creating inflation by making the rich richer... the bastard knew what he was doing when he did that.... just like tax cuts are supposed to create jobs!!!! LMAO!!

Thats easy... just give all the unemployed a sign to spin around like bruce lee... Thats a job right?  I see them everywhere now!

Sign up all the unemployed as paid demonstrators, like the ones that appear in Manhattan every day marching between the federal building and Wall Street.

Demonstration signs for the unemployed, that is the ticket.  We can do better than Greece:  We can pay for the demonstrators.

I've actually tried to think of a way to do a profit.

I can provide the signs. Use the sign money to give the demonostrators Taser Shockwaves, LRADs, and CTS Sting-Balls.

If I could find a way to at least break even, I would do this as long as my lawyer tells me I won't get jailed for inciting riots.

Libertarian777's picture

hire someone to incite the riot, then become a lawyer to sue the police...

No problemo.  Now if they can just find enough airports to put all those worthless new TSA emplyees in.

Good news is your crotch will now be certified free of explosive devices.

I called into the TSA to see if athletic cups were on the list of prohibited items as I didn't want to get my testicles tickled.  The "Customer Service Agent" explained that it is not on the list of prohibited items and could be worn. 

I guess I will see in a couple of weeks when I go flying.  I will be recording the event and anticipate that they will insist that I remove the cup.  I hope to get them to admit that my balls must be fondled prior to entering the "secure zone". 

Should be fun.  TSA "Patdowns" - Feel the Freedom.

I really want to hear the follow up on this.

Dr. Richard Head's picture

I will definitely post it on my ShakedownR3volution YouTube Channel when the time comes.  The video will also be streaming to and downloaded so destruction of the phone will not destroy evidence. 

Oh yeah - I will be wearing this T-Shirt too -  Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee..........

First laugh I've had all day in the midst of this grim economic news. Thanks!

Those TSA folks don't have much of a sense of humor, especially if they think you're intentionally fucking with them. You should plan on missing that flight and being placed on the infamous "no-fly" list.

Will you be posting your experiment to YouTube?

Dr. Richard Head's picture

FUCK the TSA.  I don't have much tolerance for men touching my balls.  Not intentionaly fucking with them though, just intentionally protecting my family jewels.

I'd go easy on the rank and file TSA folks.  They are their for a job, and I imagine would rather not fondle you... well, most of them anyway.  It's the policy makers where your rightful scorn and contempt should be directed.

overmedicatedundersexed's picture

quantum, you forgive the nazi guards at the ovens also as they were just following orders is that the logic you are using??

Dr. Richard Head's picture

Feel free to give away your rights without resistance, but I reserve the right to keep mine. 

I am not going easy on any of them.  You know, I have a quick story for you.  I went to work in the mortgage industry originating loans for a brokerage house back in 2004.  I walked away from a $20K commission check and refused to close the loans (of course the manager ended up hoodwinking these customers anyway).  I flat out refused to fuck ignorant people.  It took me a few weeks to figure out the mortgage game and how people were getting fucked, but once I found out I could not stay in that job.  You wanna know why?  It's called integrity and I have no problem getting on my soap box because I walked the walk. 

I had a choice.  A nice cool 20 g's and fuck someone over, trust me I needed the money for my wife and daughter to eat, or not take part in the game.  I decided on the latter and I have no pity for someone who fucks with others because they need a paycheck. 

The TSA can go to hell and fucking die.

Obama- FEMA just called.  They want to know when they can start unloading the buses at the detention facilities.

serotonindumptruck's picture

Not detention facilities. Resettlement camps.

Words have meaning, doncha know.

Van Halen's picture

Not resettlement camps, corrective reeducational institutions.

42,000 jobs a month still going to China. Have been for about ten years. That is the problem, we don't make shit here anymore. People are flat out stupid to shop at WalMart.

Fed to hire runners to carry QE funds to PDs. 

Expected to boost job creation by titrating size of QE to jobs needed

Once the QE train starts going the numbers will be cooked to provide those necessary numbers as the B/D model will add the majority of the fluff numbers and MCD will need more janitors and JPM will need food stamp processors.
