Little things locally:
Rural Walmart's shelves are pittifully bare,produce bins 1/2 full.Prices higher,of course.
My local gym (non-chain) puts a piece of paper on the door looking for $10.00 an hours mostly maintainance help: over 150 people hear about it and pop in to fill out an ap.
This is in an area of maybe 4000 residents?
Seeds and plants in every local nursery sell out almost immediately,some wait for "trucks" to arrive on Mondays.Heirlooms are twice as much and you literally have to grab them or they are gone.
Service industries locally are hurting: no funding for large commerical jobs at all and I'd venture to guess that 85% of newly created strip malls in the area are vacant.

Hi Slayer,

That's the problem "pumping money into the global Economy" doesnt work.

History has proven this. It will lead to Hyperinfation, where it takes a wheel barrel full of money to buy a loaf of bread.

I wont be surprised if several make bank runs today.

The stock market was way up but took a sharp turn down today. Very volatile !

Creepy!

Flint Contemplates Shutting Down Some Neighborhoods
www.publicbroadcasting.net...
ANN ARBOR, MI (2009-03-18)

Nearly a third of the homes in Flint have been abandoned. Some Flint officials say it's time to consider shutting down parts of the shrinking city. Interim Mayor Mike Brown said last week the city might have to consider shutting down depopulated neighborhoods. His spokesperson later stressed the remark was hypothetical. But Dan Kildee says it's time to seriously consider it. He runs the County Land Bank, which tears down blighted houses in Flint. Kildee says the city just can't afford to provide public services for its large, underpopulated footprint. sustainable part of Flint.

Flint MI May Close 8 Schools

Wrong on all counts.

U.S. unemployment today is 8.3%, in 1980 it was 12.5%, in '32 it was 25%.

Although 4th qtr. GDP in the U.S. was down significantly, it was still up for FY2008 overall. Obama projects 3% growth in FY2009.

!980-81 and 1991 recessions were deeper than current retraction.

25,000 banks failed in 1932, 15,000 failed in '80s recession. Last year saw much fewer, and the pace is lessening so far this year.

Not a depression by any outrageous stretch of the imagination.

Just because Obama's administration cries "CRISIS" (BHO's, Kissinger's, Emanuel's and Clinton's favorite 'opportunity') does not make it so.

The crisis mentality is a means of diversion so BHO can run his socialist/leftist ideologies through Congress and feed them to his electorate before they realize "they been had."

The Weekly Layoff Report: Double-Digit Days
Klaus Kneale, 03.27.09, 06:27 PM EDT

More than 9,000 jobs were cut at America's biggest companies this week.

-excusssseeeee me - can we please include even the little companies -
We saw 9,000 cut in one day - A little BS to go with your breakfast...

cont....
Layoffs are causing tension everywhere now. The manager of a 3M plant in France was held hostage by angry workers for more than a day this week after it was announced that 110 of the 235 employees at the plant would be let go.

According to U.S. Department of Labor data released Friday, seven states are now enduring double-digit unemployment. In California, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island and South Carolina between 10.1% and 12% are out of work. (Highlights of the week's activity are recorded by the Forbes.com Layoff Tracker, which counts the layoffs at all the nation's 500 largest corporations.)
