    1. Nice write up. Many have pointed that our unemployment rate done by government is actually mismanaged numbers. Many Austrian economic economists want the original formula form the 1970’s to show our true rate. I’ve seen ranges of our unemployment rate being anywhere from 14-22% with the old calculations.

  1. How are true unemployment rates estimated at all? There are many people who are unemployed who aren’t receiving unemployment pay, but are still out of a job and looking. There are people like me, who are stay at home moms just starting to get back into the work force. How do they count for people like us?
