Chocolate Rations Are Up

Another depressing thing about the rhetoric coming from Senior Treasury Officials was their emphasis on the fact that if you judge by GDP growth, things are so much awesomer than anyone could have predicted a year ago. That's true, but unemployment figures are much worse than predicted and their own latest future predictions for unemployment are horrendous. In fairness they did address the awfulness of the unemployment numbers, but still stressed...things better than expected! Well, better for whom?
