    I found this posted else where on the internet and thought it an excellent visual to share. Watch the light of employment across the country go black from 2007-2010.

      Thank you for the post. I found this very interesting and scary at the same time.

    Yup... thank God for that stimulus plan... FDR would be proud of Oby and his ilk.

    I agree with Tony, scary. Isn’t it interesting that the fall began in coordination with the National Conventions in August of 2008, and continues at a frightening pace with no end in sight?

    Isn’t it also interesting that the markets began their downfall at the same time?

    Some market information suggests that trillions of dollars were withdrawn from the markets beginning during the same period.

    Perhaps, just perhaps, more than a few business investors knew what this new administration was going to do to businesses and our economy.

      The damage was done by Bush and Greenspan with help from others including Rubin and Clinton who repealed Glass-Steagall.
