Except if pre1980 GDP metrics are used

Except if pre1980 GDP metrics are used (see shadowstats) then the GDP is 4/5 of what it was in 2001. Shadowstats show 9 years of shrinking GDP

Which seems verified by the 20% unemployment.

So $8 Trillion down from $10 Trillion in 2001 is probably more accurate. That puts us a trillion dollars behind China and they hold trillion dollars of our debt.

Twenty percent shrinkage would be around 9000 on the Dow.

Free includes debt-free!
