Wednesday, August 11, 2010

The 9.5 percent unemployment rate does not count a huge number of Americans: People who are out of a job and have given up looking. With millions of people out of work and competing with each other for the small percentage of open jobs, it makes sense that a significant portion will call it quits – at least for the time being – and cease searching for employment all together.

Numbers Show Poor Economic Growth

Friday, July 30, 2010

The commerce department revised growth figures for 2007 - 2009, taking down the numbers and essentially showing that the economy performed more poorly than was thought. The economy shrank at a rate of 2.6 percent last year; this is the steepest drop since 1956. On Wall Street, stock futures fell in the wake of this report.

Dan Gross, columnist for Newsweek and Slate says that there's a dichotomy. Things associated with business, industry, and global industry are strong, while anything tied to the consumer is weak. Personal consumption is only rising at 1.6 precent rate.
