  • Are we talking the U3 number or TRUE U6 number?! If U3, I say around 10%....U6 around 25%.

    I honestly don't see ANYTHING happening for the better on a national level in 2011! If anything, it's going to get worse as all of Obama's "propping up" of business, industry and housing programs begin to default!

  • I think you mean 2012. I say 8%

  • I hope it is back to Bush levels hovering around 5%, but I fear it will stay around 10% because PBO doesn't understand economics even though he said he read a book about it.

  • No firm #...

    However. That's because I agree with most of the #'s shared. I believe it will still be anywhere from 8.2%-9.2%......... the Jobs forecast honestly looks no better for this year than it did last year. There are no new industries being created to replace all that have been lost, there are no new jobs being created to replace the ones that so many companies cut.....
