The “labor shortage” hasn’t been accurately analyzed, until now. The real problem is there’s simply not a labor shortage in the right industries. Por ejemplo, I wish there were too few political commentators to fill the time slots on the news networks, such that the media itself would have no choice but to go off the air for a few hours every day due to a shortage of tedious loudmouths. The silence would do everyone a world of good.
By the same token, too bad there’s no labor shortage for advisors to the President of the United States, because the advice President Biden is getting is dubious at best, and of little benefit to people who need a lot of help right now.
Alas, we can only dream.
