Reuters Revives Misery Index

Unexpectedly, LSM fits Carter Era descriptor for Obama
An unofficial gauge of human misery in the United States rose last month to a 28-year high as Americans struggled with rising inflation and high unemployment.

The Misery Index -- which is simply the sum of the country's inflation and unemployment rates -- rose to 13.0, pushed up by higher price data the government reported on Wednesday.

The data underscores the extent that Americans continue to suffer even two years after a deep recession ended, with a weak economic recovery imperiling President Barack Obama's hopes of winning reelection next year.

USA punch line: 'We came, we saw, he died.' (from dailymail.co.uk)

Hillary Clinton joked with a TV news reporter moments after she learned that Muammar Gaddafi had been killed in Libya.

She told the reporter: 'We came, we saw, he died' as she learned of the dictator's grisly end.

When the TV reporter asked if her recent visit to Libya had anything to do with Gaddafi's downfall, the Secretary of State quipped: 'No,' then rolled her eyes before adding 'I'm sure it did.'

"... the Libyan people now have a great responsibility — to build an inclusive and tolerant and democratic Libya ...

We look forward to ... a stable transition to Libya’s first free and fair elections."

Obama Touts Leveling Success

Promises kept, but unfinished business remains
Not since at least 1960 has the US standard of living fallen so fast for so long. The average American has $1,315 less in annual disposable income now than at the onset of the Great Recession.

Think life is not as good as it used to be, at least in terms of your wallet? You'd be right about that. The standard of living for Americans has fallen longer and more steeply over the past three years than at any time since the US government began recording it five decades ago.

Bottom line: The average individual now has $1,315 less in disposable income than he or she did three years ago at the onset of the Great Recession – even though the recession ended, technically speaking, in mid-2009. That means less money to spend at the spa or the movies, less for vacations, new carpeting for the house, or dinner at a restaurant.
