Chart of The Month Club Shows How Fed Stimulus Actually Worked

Let it not be said that Fed policies of ZIRP and QE were not stimulative. In this installment of the Chart of the Month Club, we show the naysayers that it is abundantly clear that the Fed stimulated growing leisure time for millions of Americans not only in total numbers but as a growing percentage of the population. Under QE and ZIRP both the number of people not in the labor force and their percentage of the population have grown at a faster rate than in the past.

We congratulate the Fed for stimulating increased leisure time for a growing number of Americans. Keep up the good work, ladies!

Fed Stimulates Growth In Leisure Opportunities for Americans

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also provide analysis and charts for David Stockman's Contra Corner which I developed for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs in the past 44 years, including a stint on Wall Street in both analytical and sales capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I worked as a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. My perspective is not of the Ivory Tower. It is from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches of the industries that I analyze and write about today.
