Carol Roth breaks out the crayons to help media understand why people don’t ‘feel good’ about economy

While President Joe Biden attempted to add a victory to his win column over the latest jobs report, the media remained “baffled by why Americans aren’t feeling good about the economy” like the president.

One renowned entrepreneur and investor explained the reality of economic woes in a tweet so simple that even they would have to concede her points.

On Friday, Biden attempted to cite “record job-creation” as a major accomplishment for his relatively short tenure in office and boasted that his presidency could take credit for nearly 8 million jobs created in the past 14 months. He also boasted that the unemployment rate had only been as low as it is now in three months over the last 50 years as the U.S. added 431,000 jobs in March.

“What this means is clear,” the official Twitter account of the president stated. “Americans are back to work.”


Despite these claims, the president’s approval has remained low and corporate media can’t come to grips with why that is. Carol Roth, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton School of Business and author of “The War on Small Business: How the Government Used the Pandemic to Crush the Backbone of America,” simplified it for them.

Inflation is now estimated to be costing the average American $433/month more in expenses than last year. That’s currently $5,200 over the course of the year and that number is expected to rise.

Furthermore, even if wage growth was keeping up with the actual historic gains that had occurred during President Donald Trump’s administration where the median household income grew by seven percent in 2019, it would still not be enough to combat the near eight percent inflation since last year as the New York Post reported.

Additionally, Biden’s numbers on the jobs reporting aren’t grounded in reality. As the Post laid out, and many others can see this plainly without the presented figures, in February 2020 the nation had 152.5 million nonfarm employees. That number was the highest the labor force had ever reached.

Once the lockdowns began, that figure plummeted to nearly 130.5 million. Data from the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics show that the total of nonfarm employees has only reached 150.9 million while Biden has been in office. That further means that 12 million jobs were “created” in the waning months of Trump’s presidency.

However, the reality is much simpler. These jobs have been recovered as social welfare programs like supplemental pandemic payouts end and workers realize the gravy train is coming to a stop.

Unfortunately, the media is either blind to this reality as they remain in their elite circles distanced from the struggles of everyday Americans, or they are complicit in disingenuous claims by the administration and its surrogates.

Reality, it appears, comes to everyone sooner or later. Even CNN had to reevaluate its position from January when it attempted to argue inflation was good for lower-income Americans and only hurt the rich.

Nearly three months later, they admit to the truth.
