The CCC was a government program that put 3 million back to work.

( What I also wrote was “However, the reason for higher unemployment is because there is a surplus of labor. That is there had been a decline in the number of jobs available and the number of people who want jobs now is greater than the number of jobs being offered.” ))

I agree. However, a government program that takes taxpayer money to put unemployed people to work doesn't wash in my opinion. It is true that the 'newly' employed folks will have money to spend, however, this money came from other people's pockets....now they have less money to spend.

The economics of this just don't work, IMO.

( PS I’m interested in your name. Do you own a spotted pony?)

Yes. :)
