    The economy has improved, generally, over the last year. It would not be fair to judge the president based on the initial slump because of the downturn conditions that he inherited from the previous administration.

    Not in my little world.  I do not see the economy as improved and it depends on what statistics and economists you listen to.

    no. for the reason the economy is the way it is , is investment bankers not starting any project to start jobs. they combining commercial papers  and business to make money. the repeal of Glass- Steagall is why the country is in this mess. investment banker have to go back making there money by using there money to leverage other investor to start project that new business use to start making jobs, instead of robbing people of there home value and debt tax money. debt is a tax. wake up fools. the average U S citizen has a commercial account. got to be very very wealthy to have an investment account so the U S people are not on a even playing field and any so-called improvement can fall again for the problem HAS NEVER BEEN FIX. Reinstate The Glass-Steagall Act and investment bankers will HAVE TO INVEST TO MAKE MONEY. NOW. THEY JUST ROBBING EVERYONE WITH CONGRESSIONAL HELP.

WE ALL ARE BEING ROB YOU WILL SEE MORE AND MORE MAJOR CORPORATION JOIN TOGETHER FOR THAT HOW THE MAKING MONEY TOO. many have

    Yes, the stock market has returned to being around 12k on a normal basis.  Inflated unemployment numbers are a product of the extensions continually being placed on unemployment benefits.  Normally, when the benefits ran out, people would either find another way of getting money or becomed discouraged.
