Yeah, Right, The Recession’s Over

We’ve been hearing more about “jobless recoveries” over the years, but it’s pretty profound how rapidly the trend is increasing. Calculated Risk:

Months to Return to Full Employment
1981:  28
1990:  31
2001:  47
2007:  ??

This multi-decade trend suggests to me that there’s something secular and structural at play. I suggest this.
