In a depressed world, if one is not depressed, one surely is - be it mentally, emotionally or economically but the root cause is mostly the econ.

This article broke my heart. I just saw an amazing film called ONE MAN ONE COW ONE COUNTRY - about an Englishman named Peter Proctor - who is in India turning one farm land at a time into healthy farmland by using organic biodiversity measures - It was necessary to start all over due to the Monsanto and chemically treated diseased soil.
I suppose these folks were getting a chance to finally pull out of the cycle -
It's all seems too well orchestrated for me.

Idaho's jobless fund is going broke A law designed to ease unemployment

taxes backfired on the very businesses it was meant to help.


These days Roger Madsen, Idaho Department of Labor director, regrets not being more aggressive in ensuring that Idaho's fund for paying benefits to jobless workers could withstand a long recession's onslaught. But in 2004, Idaho was booming. National magazines were heralding the state's business environment. Idaho was in the midst of a tech, rec and building boom that some said made us resistant to recession.

GM exec says 1,600 will lose jobs in next few days



By TOM KRISHER – 5 hours ago

DETROIT (AP) — About 1,600 workers at General Motors Corp. will lose their jobs in the next few days as the troubled automaker accelerates cost cuts in order to qualify for more government aid.

GM North America President Troy Clarke said in an e-mail to employees sent Monday that the layoffs are needed to ensure the company's long-term viability.

"In these unprecedented times, GM is reinventing every aspect of our business, including our organizational size and structure, to create a lean and agile company," Clarke wrote in the e-mail obtained by The Associated Press.

Clarke said the next week will be "a very trying time for the entire GM team, but especially for those employees directly impacted by these actions."
