Riddle me this

What do you call an economy that is

a) losing population to out-migration at a record pace,

b) facing worker shortages in most areas of the province (including Miramichi and the North)

and

c) has an increasing number of people with EI claims (check the year over year stats)?

We have 31,000 people on EI in December and from the annualized data we know that around 100,000 collect EI at some point in a given year.

That doesn’t make much sense folks.
