It is trends that count.

Does that help explain what is happening?
I have no trouble understanding what is happening. And you are correct in a limited way, but as usual looking for the dark clouds instead of the silver lining.

Big fucking deal, Jay.

Recession or not, many people are out of a job. And many more not even trying to look for one.

So do I point out the dark cloud on an already very cloudy day OR do you look for a silver lining in a hurricane?

As a systems analyst, I am paid good money to look at the whole picture and find ALL the weak spots. That has been my training for decades. It helps me build much better systems that are less likely to fail.

You need to find a job where you are paid good money to look at the whole picture and find ALL the strong spots! You might become a Republican!!

FLASH: ECONOMY REBOUNDS IN 2Q AT 3.3%; 'RECESSION' ON HOLD...

Economy rebounds at better-than-expected pace in the spring, mostly spurred by exports

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The economy shifted to a higher gear in the spring, growing at its fastest pace in nearly a year as foreign buyers snapped up U.S. exports and tax rebates spurred shoppers at home.

The Commerce Department reported Thursday that gross domestic product, or GDP, increased at a 3.3 percent annual rate in the April-June quarter. The revised reading was much better than the government's initial estimate of a 1.9 percent pace and exceeded economists' expectations for a 2.7 percent growth rate.

The rebound comes after two dismal quarters. The economy actually shrank in the final three months of 2007 and limped into the first quarter at a feeble 0.9 percent pace. The 3.3 percent growth in the spring was the best performance since the third quarter of last year, when the economy was chugging along at a brisk 4.8 percent pace.

Still, the growth pickup is not likely to be seen as a lasting sign that the fragile economy is back on solid ground.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke recently warned the economy will be weak through the rest of this year. A growing number of analysts fear that the country will hit another economic pothole in the fourth quarter, as the bracing impact of the tax rebates disappears. And there are concerns exports could tail off as other countries' economies slow down. ...
