    I think this is all going to hinge on the passage of health reform. If it passes, we're going to see the bottom drop out of a lot of things.

    That is just one indicator.

    read the others that are up in the article.


    The nation's factories, however, are faring much better. The Commerce Department orders rose by 1.1 percent in November, more than double the 0.5 percent increase economists had forecast. The increases were widespread with the exception of autos and aircraft, which posted declines.

    The Institute of Supply Management had reported Monday that its key gauge of U.S. factory activity showed manufacturing was expanding in December at the fastest pace in more than three years.

    Missed this part?

    But there appears little risk a reversal in housing would pull the economy back into recession. Orders to U.S. factories posted a big gain in November, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. That data was the latest evidence of a strong turnaround in manufacturing as industries from China to Europe flash recovery signs.

    Taken together, the reports show that, while housing remains vulnerable, makers of steel, computers and chemicals are mounting a surprisingly robust rebound.

    Did the guy actually say "back into a recession"? I would like to know when we left this one?

    I will say one thing for sure.....

    Until I know the cost of an employee above base salary (what we refer to as statatory costs), it would be foolish to hire one.

    As most if not all business owners know, you must know the return on an employee before determining the value of such an employee...and the wqorhiness of such employee....andif you do not know the cost of the emplyuee, it is impossible to pewrform a cost benefit analysis.

    Now,of course,such is not the case when you have a dramtic increase in demand for your goods or services.....sometimes you hire regardless of cost bnenefit as such is necessary to simply meet the demands of your clients.......but we all know that NO ONE has an increase in demand right now...

    SO exactly how does healthcare on the table and cap and trade in the wings help our unemployment issue?
