I came across this article on job losses and growth by R. Paul Herman and Tom Bowmer. I’m not sure I fully buy in to their “impact sector” job growth category – jobs that have a positive impact on the world are growing faster than those that don’t. Interesting thesis – I guess I’d need to study what gets grouped by category and why.
But one chart presented in the article caught my
attention. A stark representation of the depth and longevity of this Great
Recession we’re in. If you project out the slope of the current jobs trend line
it looks like we’re 30 months or so away from getting back to the null point.
