Your unsourced, context-free graph convinced me. We obviously must abolish the Fed, switch to the gold standard, and make dogecoin the reserve currency. RON PAUL.

Ben was a guy,
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays,
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes,
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles,
That kind of guy.

She's a girl,
A girl who is warm and dovish during the day,
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the profit from a cup-and-handle,
A girl whose rate policy stays loose when night comes,
A girl who liked Operation Twist...

Hey.... dovey lady!
Nu-Nu-Nu-Nu - Nuna is Federal style...

So what's all this fuss about a decline in the Forced Labor Participation Rate?  Who likes forced labor anyway?  And doesn't what goes up go down, so everyone's better off right back where they started?

What that graph says to me: "the labor participation rate has remained very consistently within the 63% to 67% range for at least 36 years now, so it's barely worth mentioning."
