You can hide huge expenditures if GDP is growing by leaps and bounds and I honestly believe that if there is a glut of decent jobs it is in human nature for people to try and better themselves. Those opportunities just need to be much better than what they can get sitting on their asses.
As I stated in a different thread what is that next boom? Where do we go from here?
The next boom will probably be similar top the 'boom' created in the former-USSR, when the monolith control system fails and the vacuum left is filled with black marketeers who have the most readily available infrastructure to scavenge the wreckage.
