A shared 'uneasy feeling' on the economy
If there was any doubt, we begin this decade in a hole. A deep one.
The "Uneasy Feeling" New York Times columnist Bob Herbert writes about today centers around the stunning job loss between 2000 and 2010. He highlights Saturday's story by The Post's Neil Irwin to make his point. "There has been zero net job creation since December 1999," Irwin wrote, which resulted in the past decade being "the worst for the U.S. economy in modern times."
The graphic accompanying Irwin's story, plus this February 2009 chart from the Bureau of Labor Statistics illustrate where we are, relative to where we’ve been, as far as job growth.
"This is a society in deep, deep trouble," writes Herbert. No argument here.
