Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would note in my defense, since I'm tired of wasting my time responding to Drew, that I and most of the attorneys I'm in contact with around the country, do bankruptcies and small business reorganizations, and if you put us all together, we do thousands.  Actually a fairly reasonable sample size for misery.  We see a lot of faux self-employment and rampant underemployment.  As for what data agencies do and do not collect, having done my time in government service, I can say this: Agencies see, at most, what they have a legislative mandate to see.  If someone can show me how the growing collection of economic fringe dwellers is being accurately included in the stats, I'd be more than happy to look at it.  But I really don't think it is.
