10.2% unemployment

November 7, 2009

Yay!

I know this came out yesterday but I am still a little sick and I didn’t get around to it.

I’m not an economist and barely remember the economics class I took but what is really alarming to me is not the 10.2 rate, we all knew that was coming, but the fact that the rate of change appears to be accelerating again. That can’t be good.

    And, as noted in this article, TG / TS unemployment can be 2x the mean. Urk!

      If DADT get repealed I would consider it. Living quarters could be awkward though 😛
