The Unemployment can be seen from space on Google Earth
I am completely serious you can SEE the lack of industry from space. Construction Rental of Venice has all it's equipment in the lot, from their driveway you can see the Hansen Pipe Building with it's huge closed doors. The pipes used to be stacked so tall you could not see the building from the road. Now you see stacks no more than 2 high. Hansen has had the doors closed for a week after running 24/7 for years! http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=27.082074,-82.42659&z=17&t=h&hl=en
^Construction Rental with no equipment in the yard.^
You can see the economic depression and unemployment from SPACE!
Actually I need to go make a vid of the places now to compare to. The Google images are about 4 years old and show what it looks like when construction was going pretty strong. You can see bridges and roads being built commercial buildings being re-roofed and land being cleared.
