We’ve now lost 8.4 million jobs in this recession, and a vast majority of them are gone for good. The politicians are clambering aboard the jobs bandwagon, belatedly, but very few are telling the truth about the structural employment problems in the U.S. and the extremely heavy lift that is necessary to halt our declining living standards and get us back to an economy that is self-sustaining.Howie P.S.: Is this another example of "the fierce urgency of now"? Or is it the "decline and fall" of another empire?
It’s time for serious people to step forward and help lead on these critically important issues. Time is short.
