Hints of Economic Recovery

November 28, 2010

For the first time since the Economic Crisis of 2008 hit the Americans, there are some signs that the economy is recovering. Four states have reported an increase in jobs during the month of October.

California, New York, Florida, and Texas have reported an increase of 134,300 jobs combined while there has been no change in the unemployment rate. There is hope in that the income taxes derived from hiring people to fill the jobs will help the budget deficits of each of these states. There is also some speculation that younger people may be finding jobs or people who are unemployed are now regaining confidence in looking for jobs.

whatever the case, it is refreshing and encouraging that there are new jobs available.

I have spent many years in financial services and just as many, if not more in developing my creative side, which started out as a hobby. You will se some of my works on my website.

Consumer demands are changing and shopping habits have changed. I am pleased theat the economy is showing signs of economic recovery. I will continue to keep you posted on important developments. Thanks for your faithful following. I have enjoyed the comments.

Japan, China South Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, and Hong Kong are all reporting quarterly growth for the first time in a year. Blaine Harden, of the Washington Post Foreign Service reports on August 17, 2009 that the growth is due to “a spurt in manufacturing, an easing of credit, and the health of Asian banks that were largely unscathed by the U.S. and European debt crisis.”

Germany and France are also showing growth, but not to the degree of the Asian countries. The U. S. on the other hand suffered a decline in growth for the second quarter as the Federal Reserve will pull back its intervention in the economic recovery soon.
