The unemployment rate in the U.S. has fallen to 6.3%. Good news, superficially. However, the bad news is that many long-term unemployed workers give up seeking jobs—in other words, they are no longer listed as labour force participants.
The financial crisis ended years ago. The U.S. economy works almost normally, except for the "small detail" that it does not generate jobs. Maybe it's time to cut taxes and leave households a larger slice of the pie. If the government cut the tax burden, it could also cut welfare expenditure–and the economy would be healthier as a whole.
The conundrum is perhaps quite easy: the tax burden is too high, the size of the government is too big.
