Well, the GDP rose by 5.7% which is a continuation of a trend of rising GDP, so the stimulus and other economic policies appear to be helping a bit: U.S. GDP grows at 5.7% rate in fourth quarter - latimes.com But unemployment continues to be dismal. What's the reason? US Companies keep sending their jobs overseas, to save money, thanks to reliance on market self-governance. So the corporations reap record profits, Wall Street continues to climb, and US citizens continue to have no jobs. So what's the solution? Obama believes it's giving tax breaks to companies that keep their jobs in the US. I say that's a good start. Anyone have any other good ideas to keep jobs here?
