Job creation - what is your mental model of how it works?

In your mind, is the number of jobs created per month something that can be changed instantaneously, like the acceleration of a car, or is it something that changes gradually, like the velocity of a car?

I don't want to have to deal with the jargon from the physics department to answer this question.

I don't want to deal with dragging out the old physics book .

So I guess you'll be getting us up to speed   (  :

I take it you've memorized the book for us this fine morning.

Yay.

Don't you know that our President has a Job Creation Button under his desk that he just refuses to push?  It would be automatic!

Very gradually, and in a bad economy, I think it's fairly typical to see private sector jobs disappear first, later the public sector jobs begin to disappear as state and local funding drys up. Both types of jobs affect our overall economy. Typically the private sector jobs appear first and the public sector jobs follow suit.

Even in milder recessions, it usually takes a couple years to get things back to normal. This recession was unusual in its length, so I would expect a recovery to be equally long. There have also been other changes such as globalization and the rise in outsourcing jobs, plus some industries (print media is one that comes to mind) have dramatically changed.

trans;lated- Clair is too smart and I do not understand what she posts.

Another example of how many Americans can not compete on a global stage-

Separation of church and state is for the protection of BOTH church and state.
Leading with hate and intolerance only leads to MORE hate and intolerance.

When my daughter was in an International graduate degree program, the Profs reinforced the concepts and skills needed to compete on the global stage. They also told the students that more and more people of this generation (young 20s) needed to think about starting their own businesses- NO, they did not mention asking the parents for the start -up money.

People need to understand that in terms of jobs, the venue and atmosphere has changed drastically.

Technology has replaced human labor in many sectors.

Socialist  sisteract  reiterating the problem with  ZERO SOLUTIONS.

Typical for a Lib.

No  realistic solution for anything.

Who the hell do you think doesn't know that technology has replaced labor?

Anyone who doesn't know that won't be starting a business anytime soon.

You truly are absurd.

the top economists in our country, are not sure how to turn the economy around.  I doubt anyone here has any specific ideas either.  I've thought about it long and hard, economics has always been an interest of mine.

Because interest rates are so low, many banks are not giving mortgages now unless one has impeccable credit.  They don't want to have such a low return for a 30 yr. mortgage.  less people able to buy homes, less construction of new homes as well which hinders the economy.

I don't know how we can get passed the issue of companies that will ship jobs overseas to save a penny on a part. One can not regulate greed. 

Get rid of military waste, no more earmarks, I've love to see no more lobbyists and campaign reform. I think lobbying and the monies for campaigning, have a negative effect on politicians on decisions they make for us.

Sure they do, but you listen to the ones that still cling to the Keynesian failure, so you likely just don't realize it.
