Good Point

Why is it that no one inside the Beltway seems to give a crap about unemployment?  I think Brad DeLong hits on several of the reasons: the collapse of unions as a political force (and the attendant whoredom of the Democratic Party to the “global free trade” mantra) and the new status of the media as part of the economic aristocracy.  Nobody has any incentive to give a crap anymore.
