hmmm perhaps something else that happened this year that was a bit unusual, like shutting the whole fucking world economy down for over a month
might have something to do with it

Ignore phoneutria's interrogation, smears. She just votes for the guy who lowers taxes because she fuckin hates paying taxes. That's her whole platform; LMIA (leave my income alone).

That’s because...

How much of Trump's wall is done?

On December 17, 2019, acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan stated that 93 miles of barriers has been built during the Trump administration; according to CBP figures, at least 90 miles of that replaced existing structures.

Trump wall - Wikipedia

Old barriers have been reinforced or replaced, but the wall isn't much longer than it was to begin with. There are also 40 million unemployed Americans. Where are you getting your information?

Perhaps they started, with replacing the old section, and then will continue, by starting on the new section, from there..

I believe that the new higher US unemployment figure has already been resolved/explained, by Phon.. a naughty move, on your part MrR. :eusa-naughty:

I'm reading up on the pareto fella. The period during which he was working was the industrial boom, a very young stage of capitalism that led very quickly and directly to those kinds of unbalanced distributions. He just noted this happening. But the distribution laws are obviously things that can be consciously modified if they become known.... because you can purposely redistribute and defy that rule.

Course some will argue that these ratios express the natural, deserved distribution of wealth... that talent controls this... that it is meritocratic. But then a critic raises and excellent point:

"The maximum success never coincides with the maximum talent, and vice-versa,” and that such factors are the result of chance."

Discuss.

the distribution of success and the distribution of talent, the distribution of workload, the distribution of effort, the distribution of wealth, etc are not necessarily coincident
but they all tend toward pareto ratios

cuz as far as i know there is already an equal obligation of all to work
but you can hire 10 dudes to do a job and 2 of them are going to do 80% the work
It be like that
