    These are just musings..but lately there's been alot of frenzied activity from recruiters. And I just went to the office party of my old job and while talking to some of the guys there, many people who were looking for a year or more are getting snapped up.

    What's going on?

    Well aside from the economy getting better, the Bush tax cuts are set to expire. And there's not much evidence they did anything to help. Employers are sitting on tons and tons of liquidity and playing "shell games" to keep making money..without adding to the overall economy. Given the present anger in the public at large, I have a feeling that to quell some of this..there will be a hiring boom.

    Who knows...:D

    Could you explain it in terms a non-wall street financier would understand, Mr. Sallow? What would a 'ton of liquidity' be?

    The economy has only produced 625,000 jobs in 5 months. That is a deficit of 125,000 when considering new people entering the market.
    I see no indication whatsoever to indicate anything other than a painfully slooooooow, slugish market.
    Anything else is wishful thinking.
    Having said that - I also believe this administration will do anything to make 2012 look better, we will see another bail-out. And just as in 2009 - it will have a positive/temporary effect. Just enough that the sheep will say "Obama has saved us".

    I hope you are right as my daughter hates her job and I would like to see her find another.

    Companies have been holding cash for a while now and without demand, there is no need to hire. They are making a profit without new employees. Other bad signs for the economy are:

    -the downward adjusted housing numbers
    -paltry GDP numbers
    -real unemployment rate

    Good news though include:

    -consumer confidence is up
    -durable goods numbers up

    What this great country needs now is the two sides to stop pushing agenda items and start making decisions that make economical sense.

    they have in place in most companies cutters and slashers.

    This only works for a few years.

    They cut and slash their way in a bloated system to profits.

    At some point there is no more fat to cut.

    The corps will settle for profit any way its made.

    When slash and burn is done you have to make profits some way.

    At the point that they need to hire to make more profits they will hire.

    No republican tricks like trashing the debt ceiling or refusing tax cuts to the middle (EVEN while they claim they are all about tax cuts ) will stop the corps from finding profits.

    Unfortunately for the right we have about hit the point where to make more profits the corps are going to have to hire.

    While the republicans will do ANYTHING for corporations you see the corporations are not as devoted to the republicans.

    They will not hold back jsut to help you get elected if there are profits to be made.

    You serve a disloyal mistress cons.

    I consider much of your comment just partisan hackery, However there has been an uptick. I still call complete BS on your vast conspiracy to not add to the economy.

    We've been hearing that bullshit for three years now from "Dear Leader" Obama.
