The Great Unemployment Mystery
Monday, 23 November 2009 23:17
by Peter Stern

Unemployment in the U.S. is at its highest rate in many decades.
Apparently it is a mystery that only a Sherlock Holmes or Charlie Chan can solve because President Barack Obama has not fought significantly to bring jobs to hardly-working Americans despite his promises to the American people.
The U.S. Congress has turned its back on jobless citizens, merely offering short-term solace via extending unemployment benefits.  Who can live on such a paltry sum for any extended period?
The banks have washed their hands of millions of homeless indigents who foreclosed or walked away from their homes.  Some Americans, left with money, are finding good deals on purchasing these discarded homes.  Tent cities continue to grow across our nation.
How hard is it to provide jobs to those who need and want them?
It would be simple enough to issue tax reduction incentives to businesses who wish to expand their enterprises by providing jobs to unemployed Americans.
Equally, it is easy for the government to develop federal jobs to build, repair and maintain our depreciating infrastructures, e.g., bridges, tunnels, highways, dams, etc.
However, simple or not, jobs are NOT being provided.
Consequently, we must consider that the reason jobs are not forthcoming is that government and corporate sectors do not want to provide jobs since it is a great mystery to determine what other tangible reason there is for the highest unemployment among Americans since The Great Depression.
