Unemployment

I don't think it's even possible for a state like this to have an unemployment percentage of 70-80%. Every able-bodied citizen will be needed for something; farming, road-building, military duty, and every cottage industry that supports those will be desperately needed. 100,000 people can barely manage that without unemployment. This is not to say that the nation will be prosperous, but this state has an economy straight out of the early 1800's frontier territories. Unemployment isn't a measure of economic health, because everyone is employed doing something; Per capita income is, because they're dirt-poor anyway. I think that needs to be changed due to lack of realism.--Loughery111 16:56, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

I have to agree with Lou. Considering the damange done thanks to Doomsday, I don't think there will be a shortage of labor in this nation. Mitro 17:50, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
I really disagree; Doomsday essentially kicked this state back into a pre-industrial economy; almost everyone has to farm. Have you thought about the agricultural yields that these people will be getting out of the American Southwest with no chemical fertilizers, irrigation, or significant mechanized equipment? I'm willing to believe that 60+% of the population is either farming or working in an "industry" (read: cottage handicraft) that directly supports farming. Which leaves 40% to support the (probably proportionally very large) military and existing infrastructure, and build more; that's a pretty tight labor pool if you ask me. It's been 20 years, some semblance of order has returned, even if the level of prosperity is nearly nonexistent.--Loughery111 17:59, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
Um...I'm pretty sure I agreed with you there big guy. Mitro 18:02, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
Ohhh. Sorry, I thought by "Lou" you meant "Louisiannan," not me. The way you worded it confused me a bit. Sorry about that.--Loughery111 18:10, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
No problem, though FYI I usually shorten Louisiannan to "Louis." Mitro 18:13, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
Alright, that makes sense. In any case, I'd say that unemployment is about as close to nonexistent as is actually theoretically possible, in most of the North American nations; we are no longer a satisfied market for anything, not even food. Anyhow, if the author isn't around to edit the economy section, I'll be happy to come up with something and then we can critique it, work from there.--Loughery111 18:20, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
I was confused, too. The original author was ShutUp Navi - and I haven't seen much of Navi in recent months. If you'd like to work up something, especially in light of current events, Loughery, that would be peachy. Louisiannan 18:31, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
