Obama’s advisers differ http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/12/13/is-the-recession-over-obamas-advisers-differ/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: jstaf http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/12/13/is-the-recession-over-obamas-advisers-differ/comment-page-1/#comment-405551 Tue, 15 Dec 2009 21:34:15 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=23240#comment-405551 I agree that the investor class has seen some gains but to call a return to 10,500 from 14,000 a recovery is clearly incorrect, the market has no gains to show for the last decade.

Employment always lags in cyclical recoveries and this one will be no different, in fact the chance that jobs will take longer to return has much less to do with Bush, Clinton or Obama and more to do with a major change in the technology that we use to do work.

These structural breaks are very tough to ride through as they require the right mix of Government incentive and private sector job creation.

For the working class, the recession will go on as the country experiences another jobless recovery. Until the model of supply side economics used by every administration since Reagan is changed to one of demand side economics, the gap between the haves and the have-mores will continue to widen.
