I sure am glad we have experts like this in government who can figure out these difficult concepts for us.

I wonder is she needs someone to tell her when her slacks are on fire?

My Lord, what a git.

Ya think?

Commentator on FoxNews this morning said we need to be creating 300,000 new jobs PER MONTH just to reach the ‘break even’ point.

Per an article earlier this week, in the private sector:
42,000 jobs added in July,
19,000 jobs added in June.

We are still losing over 400,000 PER WEEK.

==

Team Obama on economics and job creation have been EPIC FAIL, and the $Trillion+ stimulus bailouts have apparently done little, if any, good.

Too bad she doesn’t understand that to save money you don’t spend it.

When we stop farming out to other countries WITH LESS RULES and cheap labor, we will again become an industrial nation.

Our damn country won't even let us produce our own energy with their rule after rule after rule.

This is all planned and on track. They know exactly what they’re doing.

As I posted on another site, I believe she has had it with carrying the bad water for this regime. Although she is on the Advisory Board, the Regime listens to her, then does what a Euro-centric socialist regime would do - raise taxes. Althouigh not my choice, she wants no tax increase or even tax cuts, until the economy improves.

IMO, another one jumping ship.

When the number of jobs is falling, it doesn’t make sense to say we need “stronger job growth.” How about, “We need job growth.” Or, “We need strong job growth.” Those would be clear statements. Maybe that’s the problem. She has to imply there is job growth when there actually is job decline.

“With an “expert” advisor like this, how can Obama go wrong?”

Well, she could have said the best way to reduce unemployment would be to encourage millions more to drop out of the labor force (and hence not get counted in unemployment statistics). So maybe we should count our blessings.

When she resigns, they won’t have to replace her with a full-timer. Just a searchable version of Das Kapital.

That should give you some indication of the caliber of buffoons in this regime.

OMG, she’s a genius.
Where did she get her PhD? We should all all write letters of gratitude to her alma mater...

Your remark, sir, is an example why I am addicted to the wit and wisdom of Freepers. I salute you.

Just wait until new taxes kick in, or rather, when current tax cuts expire.
No poor man ever gave me a job....

How would her views change if the University of California began a policy of hiring illegal aliens - professors of economics, but illegal aliens, nonetheless - as professors, for half the current salary, and replacing such as herself?

It would represent job growth, or at least job stasis, with the potential for growth.
