It is. Without further ado:
- An economy with nobody working is boring. The share of the population that is working simply has not recovered.
- An economy full of the unemployed is boring. Broad measures of unemployment remain elevated for those in the labor force.
- An economy with poor growth in work, and flat pay, creates little income to spice up one's life.
The U.S. recovery is as dull as a dead parrot.
