This index of on-line job listings touched bottom in January at 160. It has now registered three consecutive increases and has risen back up to 174.
While business and consumer confidence are very low, we are now seeing real activity numbers that the economy has found its footing and may be posed to resume a healthy growth rate.
Why does the world think that everyone WANTS to work....full time?
I know many people who opt for part time, at home, "busy" work.

Get ready for the attack of the “Prophets of Doom” on this board. Any positive news is an anomaly in our decline into the great depression (part deaux) when gold, food, and guns will be the only things worth having. Or something like that.

(Liberals, The Other White Meat)
I'm not sure the economic situation we are in has been about jobs primarily because the economy has created jobs at the rate needed. The pundits who said we needed hundred's of thousands of jobs every month forgot that thousands of people are retiring every day and aging households do not need two income earners.
This economy is about inflation and the value of the dollar. Post Reagan conservatism (you know, the movement that has died) has failed to support the free market to support the flow of commodities. As such the true inflation has hit America for the first time in 30 years.
