I hope that it improves some! With an unemployment rate of 14% here I would hope that things wouldn't get worse. :( We have had a really rough run this downturn. Much worse than it has been for us in the past! Even 9/11 didn't hit us as hard as we have gotten hit this time. I think some of it has to do with the housing problem.

I just don't see anything that makes me think it is getting better.  In our state they are going to raise the unemployment taxes on those companies that laid people off or eliminated positions.  They had to do it to try to figure out how to pay a loan back to the Fed.  The borrowed the money so they could keep paying unemployment to thousands of South Carolinians.  Seems to me like now those companies will have to lay off more people because they won't be able to afford to pay the taxes. 

Everybody I talk to seems to be having a hard time.

Anytime I hear a positive report it seems like the next day one comes out that contradicts it.  I just don't see any positive signs in my community or hear about them online.  Everyone I talk to wants people to pray that their husband or wife doesn't lose their job or finds work soon.  I don't ever heard someone saying, oh wow, my husband just got this great job, or I got a nice raise this year.  Very depressing.  That is why I am working together with a bunch of online friends to pool our resources and help each other earn.  There are so many people hurting for income and we figured if we all share our specialties and skills we can create a place where people can learn and earn without a bunch of pressure or hype.  I think it is a great idea and encourage you to do the same.

I do not know for sure, It looks like it is starting to, jobs are coming out slowly but it took about 6 to 8 years to get to this point it will take about the same to get back.  I just hope it really gets better soon, I am tired of having to tell me girls NO to anything they want because my bank account is on RED.  tHINGS GOT TO STARTING GETTING BETTER SOON.

I personally don't expect it to. I am on Disability - no raises for I think 3 years now. Reason? Cost of living has not increased - hmmm wonder what world they live in? In my world, the cost of gasoline has increased big time, food is getting more expensive, not to mention the fact that the size of the packages are getting smaller. What is a person to do?  :BangHead:

Although it is difficult to see, the economy is already starting to improve. The recovery will be slow and very uneven. There are signs of hiring but a major difference today versus past recessions, is that people no longer move to where the work is. Many will not walk away from the home they are upside down in.

Hang in there, it will get better.

I think the Economy is getting worse. I have two family members that are getting lower checks because the Premiums on their Health Insurance raised.....why? And the health insurance companies don't really help at all anyways. I am though, have been fortunate enough to find a job online that pays to help my husband out.....I just hope that it can withstand the Economy.  :-[
I think we all just have to see......but with Obama as President....I don't see any changes coming.  :BangHead:

I don't think it is as simple as the economy is improving. I believe certain aspects and disciplines are improving but this is not straight across the board. There are many jobs that will never return and there is a need to train people in the areas that do need more people. The stock market seems to be improving which is a good sign that some people out there have made a transition and are employed again but there are also a lot of people who are still being very conservative with their money. I think this will be another careful year of testing the waters then conserving our money and resources.

I don't think that it is getting any better.  I find that people that I know and people in our community it is getting worse.  I also think that people are getting depressed about it and that makes it harder for them to look on the brite side.  Also I think that in our state they are going to increase the taxes and I think that is going to make it harder for the people that live on a fixed income and alot of other families.  I don't see it changes any time soon

Back in the late 1970s the media kept track of 'the misery index' an informal gauge of inflation, stagnation and taxation that put a damper on the economy for years. Laffer's recommendationóto cut federal taxes significantly and roll back the rate of government spendingówas employed in 1981 after Carter's bid for a second term was roundly routed by an angry American electorate.

Its funny that the last bad weather was in the late 70s also.  Was harp, chemtrails and weather modification around then also? The bill to OK this only came in around 2004.

Bottom line is more people need to get back to work but where is the work?

Sure it is going to get better!  We need to understand that we live in a governmental society that affords us the opportunity to be creative and work out of the box to compensate for these kind of days that, invariably, will come no matter who is in office, been in office, or coming in office.  For those of us that understand how our economy works do not burdened ourselves with politics and things that cannot be rectified when we want it to or measure up to our expectations.  As long as you and I have a portion of good health, good people who are movers and shakers, well defined goals and a dogged type will power, we will always overcome our shortcomings.  Think about what you and I are doing now!  We are doing things out of the box that most people would call CRAZY!  When the going gets tough, the tough gets going, like you and I.  The economy will get better but we don't have time to wait, and we don't have the influence to show congress everything.  I just want to encourage you and others, and certainly yours truly, the best is yet to come!

Personally I think we're going to stay pretty stagnant this year, but not get any worse, and then start getting better in 2012. But then again, I'm no psychic! We'll just have to wait and see. Even the smartest economists out there don't really know what's going to happen....

Personally I think that if we could get jobs that we could do it would get better. I think jobs are witheld for some. However, here are some statistics. :'(

Every 2 years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics prepares a set of projected U.S. economic factors that form the basis for the employment projections program. This article presents the projections of U.S. economic factors that underlie the 2002-12 employment projections. This set of aggregate economic projections presents some unique challenges. After the boom of the 1990s, the U.S. economy suffered a number of serious setbacks, including: the bursting of the technology bubble; the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks; significant losses of stock market wealth; a stagnant job market; corporate accounting scandals; and uncertainties related to the war in Iraq.

Although the economy has had difficulty shaking off a stubborn slowdown, recent statistical data suggest that we are now poised for a more sustained recovery. During the 2000-02 period, the U.S. economy has experienced low inflation, low interest rates, strong productivity growth, and a healthy housing market. Also, both government monetary and fiscal policies have been focused on stimulating economic growth. Under the assumptions used by the Bureau in developing these projections, gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to reach $12.6 trillion in chained 1996 dollars by 2012, an increase of $3.2 trillion during the 2002-12 decade. (Also see box on page 25.) (1) This translates to an average annual rate of growth for real GDP of 3.0 percent over the period, 0.2 percentage point lower than the historical rate of 3.2 percent from 1992 to 2002. A slower growth of civilian household employment, from 1.3 percent a year during the 1992-2002 period to 1.2 percent from 2002 to 2012, is expected to result in an increase of 17.3 million employees over the latter period, still greater than the increase of 15.8 million employees over the preceding 10-year period, from 1992 to 2002. The employment projection is accompanied by an expected unemployment rate of 5.2 percent in 2012, 0.6  :'(percentage point lower than that in 2002.

The economy can't be defined as getting better or getting worst; black or white because it covers a whole host of areas. I see the economy as in suspended animation /stuck in the middle.

GE is back on top & has paid back most of the monies they owe the government.                  Americans still can't afford to buy new economy green cars.

I think the bottom line will be what we each think, feel and do about our own economy.  All indications are that food prices will go sky high because of the unusual weather we have had.  Knowing this, people should stock up when they find sales.  Bread prices will most likely be the first to increase with sugar close behind.  Get a bread maker and buy sugar on sale.  Small things we do right now will help us in the long run.  Stock up now for the shortages later on.

You are absolutely right.  Egypt only supplies 3% of the worlds oil (so I heard on a news report though I thought it was more), and they are already increasing the cost of gas.  They will come up with many other things that will cost more because of the problems in Egypt.  This thing could have a very nasty domino effect world wide very soon.

The latest news reports that food prices have gone up 29% and the cost of clothing will increase because Egypt is a very large supplier of cotton.  With that said, everything we need to live will increase in price.  Gas has already begun to increase daily.  Since we now import fifty percent of the items we use daily, other countries are really controlling our economy.  Maybe we should all pool our money together and buy back America.

The ones on fixed incomes (SSI) have gotten the shaft.  While their COLA (Cost of Living Allowance), has been denied the last 2 years, everybody else in Government has gotten a raise, from the lowest fed. worker to Congress. People on SSI are governed by the CPI (Consumer Price Index) is the formula if they are approved for a COLA increase or not. Since our economy has been in the toilet, that has been low or non existent. Here's the rub: The CPI does not factor in raising utilities, rent, or food prices.  Everything that affects those on a fixed income. Here's something else....they are the only ones that must adhere to this outdated formula along with other agencies that aid the poor and elderly.

Congress voted down a one time payment to Seniors to help offset no COLA for the last 2 years, and then turned around and voted themselves another raise.  Wake up people, we need to scrutinized who votes for what in the house and VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE!!  That's the only way we can fight back.  Thing is, so many people are so ill informed about how they are being sent down the river, that they are letting these crooks get away with it by default.  We must get involved and start reading report cards on these people and make them give account on why they vote the way they do, and keep shafting the average American.

Our Middle Class is shrinking rapidly and the ever widening space between the rich and poor is getting wider. You need to ask yourself why, and educate yourself on the financial behavior of our leaders,and why they vote to keep lining the rich's pockets.

Thank you Sherene, while I'm heading for the Senior group rapidly, my hope and Faith is in our God for financial health. I'm indeed blessed!

While my burden is for the elderly, I feel acute concern for those with children and no jobs for the parents. I cannot understand why the richest nation in the world still have children going to bed hungry, and families going without the basic necessities to sustain life. It's shameful, and smacks of lousy stewardship in our Government, and the greed of the selfish.

Well, apparently its a little better for my company. Last year we had furlough days every other week starting in May. This year we were told not to expect them. But that's just my small corner of the world. I realize not everyone has work.

The stocking up on sale is a great idea! we do that here to - i have my stock pile shelves I try to keep full with whatever I can get for a great price that we'll use and will keep.

Good luck to all weathering this economic situation!

Not only that, but each congressman continues to get paid even when they step down or get voted out.  Not one person in the senate or congress have to rely on social security checks or worry about health care.  The budget cuts are being made in areas where the people can least afford it.  We vote these people in office to stand up for us, their constituents, but instead they are voting for what's popular or what special interest groups can pay them the most in kick-backs.  Our country has literally been taken away from us.  We have no voice unless we stand up and speak up.  My hat goes off to the people of Wisconsin.  They have had the intestinal fortitude to just say "NO".   :notworthy:

It is my perspective that our economy is an interdependent economic system.  In essence, our governmental system ultimately depends on the consumer to become knowledgeable about how to financially work within the system, in essence, we must understand what we MUST to do to fulfill our role.  Hence, the business owner, the entrepreneur, and our government must work together for our economy to return to normalcy.  What we, Fusion Cash surveyors, are doing now, as social and business network marketeers, to supplement our income, and becoming self-sufficient covers a multitude of bad politics over the last 25 years.  WE WILL RE-COVER AND WE WILL ULTIMATELY STEP BACK INTO OUR GLOBAL ECONOMIC LEADERSHIP ROLE AS THE ENTIRE WORLD, IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD, IS EXPECTING US TO REGAIN OUR ROLE AS THE WORLD CLASS LEADERS WHO ARE THE MASTER MIND LEADERS OF THIS ENTIRE GLOBAL SOCIO-ECONOMIC SOCIETY.

In some areas and some industries I think will see a small improvement unfortunately many more will not have recovered. It will be a slow recovery, but as I listen to the news and hear them talk of the burst of the housing bubble in 2006-07, we have really been in this for a while and I predict that the powers that be will finally say that the housing market went into double dip in late 2010 and early 2011. Many of us were feeling the recession long before the news or government admitted it, so no action to help (cut spending) equals a longer recovery.

If all the companies would stop giving all the jobs to the illegals or giving them to people in places like India and china that would help. They say it is because their labor is cheaper but we did not have high insurance premiums until all the illegals started coming here and using the Emergency room as their regular doctor checkups. Don't get me started on how they screw the welfare system in ca either.

There are just so many problems going on at the same time and if we continue to do nothing it is only going to get worse. Just my 2 cents.

I hope you are right, but the unrest in the Middle East is very concerning due to our oil dependency on the Middle East.  Things are so unstable there now, that almost anything can happen.  I wish them all peace & harmony.  I think our economy (barring political unrest) is very shaky and it's going to take a long, long time.  I believe our current government hinders economic recovery with too much policy.

Well, we can thank Clinton and NAFTA for that.  After that bill was signed, jobs that Americans used to do started moving out of the country. The bottom line for business was to produce the same and pay out less.  They never even considered that ultimately it would hurt the US.  I don't even think they cared.  We are in the shape we are now because big business does not care about people.  They care about their bottom lines and the government allows them tax break just to continue doing business.  The best we can do is pray for the best and prepare for the worst.  Stock up now on non-perishables for those lean days which are definitely coming.  If the price of oil continues to rise (and it will) and the scarcity of jobs continue, you just might not be able to drive to the grocery store to buy food you can't afford.  Just saying.

Think about how the economy will be in the future instead of 'now,' and I don't mean in the next decade or so. More like in the second half of this century.

If USA continues to operate our country with the same assumptions we have now, the economy will eventually collapse. Things need to transform radically from within and strip America from its roots for things to get better.

Frankly, I would not be surpised if America "the greatest nation on Earth" would fall within this century, considering that our consumption of fossil fuel and other natural resources won't be able to sustain the rate at which our population is growing, at least from the past couple of centuries to the next 60 years or so.
