“Primitive tribes are naked, and wretchedly fed and housed, but they do not suffer from unemployment. […] Nothing is easier to achieve than full employment, once it is divorced from the goal of full production and taken as an end in itself. Hitler provided full employment with a huge armament program. The war provided full employment for every nation involved. The slave labor in Germany had full employment. Prisons and chain gangs have full employment. Coercion can always provide full employment.”
— Henry Hazlitt.
