So as this article, points out, only 41,000 jobs were created in May. But as anyone can tell you, the real unemployment rate is over ten percent because we don't count most of the college grads who don't have jobs. 8 million people lost their jobs in this recession so we need another (8M/41K) 195 months or 16 years of stunning growth like this!

When will the boning cease?

    Also the market is down almost 2% right now. Is this an over reaction or were we over priced before? Will there be a rebound by the end of the day or not? Place your bets.

    I think we end down 100 points on continued Euorpean fears (i.e. Hungarian economy, Span, and Greece). I remain cautiously bullish despite what I think will continue to be a difficult global economic environment for the next 6-12 months. My biggest concern is all of the remaining outstanding floating debt, which will adversely affect US homeowners and corporate borrowers as interest rates eventually rise. Unemployment will creep back towards 10% but I think consumer spending will pick up over the next 2 quarters.

    Thanks, I can't complain, I've been lucky enough to be on the right side of a lot of the big moves this year.
