  1. Cripes, GDP is meant to be a *purely economic* indicator, it’s not supposed to measure nebulous abstract concepts like “social progress” and “human happiness.” And since when does a shrinking economy and higher unemployment create happiness and social progress anyway???

  2. #1, higher unemployment does create happiness and social progress in the liberal view of the world…dependency upon the benevolent State is liberal utopia. Dependency is the liberal Zen achievement of the individual’s connection to the State. The dependent individual is at one with the State in a perfect symbiosis balancing the receiver and the giver. Think of it as the 12 step program for the anti-social, the first step is acknowledging you are powerless against your natural impulses of selfishness and greed and can not do this yourself, Step 2: you need the State’s control over you to subdue your impulses for you to be connected to society…
