    Though I'm an optimist like bbro - I do worry about service jobs that support the workers in oil fields. Restaurants, goods stores, etc.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Is Good Economic News Now Bad For Investors? [View article]
    I also agree. I took two years of calculus in college in the 70's. My kids were learning the same stuff in high school in the 2000's.

    I lived near Endicott NY during my boyhood. Getting a job with IBM was a dream come true back then. My brother-in-law is one of maybe 200 left there (out of thousands who once worked in that area).

  • More hourly wages increases seen for retail sector [View news story]
    Topcat - agree. I am very curious as to how all this pans out. This is what is needed for to begin (and it is a very small beginning) cracking wage disparity.

    Happened during the Asia crisis in the 90's. The last time we had low gas prices was during the recession/depression. Of course that would not have an effect at high unemployment rates.
