In the past, Nancy Pelosi has said that the fastest way to create jobs is through unemployment checks:

Has Pelosi pointed to this info from the Bureau of Labor Statistics as “proof” of her claim yet?

On the average day, an unemployed American is more likely to be shopping — for things other than groceries and gas — than to be looking for a new job, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Only 18.9 percent of Americans who were unemployed (in surveys conducted from 2009 through 2013) spent time in job search and interviewing activities on an average day, according to BLS. Yet 40.8 percent of the unemployed did some kind of shopping on the average day–either in a store, by telephone, or on the Internet. 22.5 percent of the unemployed, according to BLS, were shopping for items other than groceries, food and gas.

Using the Pelosi “unemployment checks are the best job creator” model, there can only be full employment in the U.S. when every single American is unemployed, living on UI and shopping. Pelosi’s economic science is settled.
