Everyone agrees that the lingering effects of the “Great Recession” won’t dissipate until the unemployment rate drops, but it’s interesting to consider why 10% of Americans (more if you include those who are underemployed or have given up the job search) aren’t working:

1) Business do NOT invest in uncertain times.  They save their cash until the economic outlook is brighter.

2) Consumers buy less when they’re worried about the future.

3) High U.S. Tax Rates (not greedy businessmen) are driving jobs overseas.
