    From the production side: GDP is the value of the final goods and services produced in an economy during a given period. GDP is also the “value-added” that all the businesses added to the economy during a given period.

    1) The burst of the housing bubble has finally happened. Sub prime mortgage crisis fills the news. Nearly 1.3 million homes subject to foreclosure. Declining home values are a fact in many parts of the country. Mortgage debt by some homeowners exceeds the value of their home.

    There is a magic number when you look at the data. That number is 65%. If your total expenditures for food, housing and transportation require less than 65% of your take home pay (That would be what’s left of any income after taxes and mandatory fees for Medicare, employee parking, etc. have been taken out.) you fall into a category of people who seldom have financial difficulty. And since the average for 2008 was 63.7%, according to the BLS data, we would expect most households to be in fairly decent financial condition as far as paying the day-to-day bills.

    Next, I considered the number of people who were not working, either due to unemployment, retirement, disability, or stay-at-home spouses. Finding the number of unemployed was rather easy, finding retirees and disabilities was a little trickier, so I checked on statistics at the U.S. Social Security Administration. As to spouses, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics was helpful.

    According to the Federal Reserve student loan debt has surpassed credit card debt and now tops $1 trillion. It is also estimated that 9.1% of new graduates default within the first two years, according to the US Department of Education. Unfortunately, the news just keeps getting worse. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports an unemployment rate of 7.8% for the month of September. So, the risk of default seems pretty high considering underemployment and those that have simply given up are not included in current unemployment statistics.

    The growth in freelance writing jobs has been steadily increasing over the last decade or so. It makes sense, because this parallels the growth of the internet. Hence, web writing jobs and online writing jobs present a lot of opportunities for freelance writers.

    You can either be a professor, guidance counselor, or even the coach of the school team . Educational services occupy the second largest industry in 2006, accounting for 13.3 million and receiving a median earning of $77,790, as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    The stock market should fall at least 10-percent in the first quarter. When it comes down to it, at the moment, only dumb money investors – average Joes – are buying stocks. Smart money investors – professional investors – have been quietly taking their money out of stocks.

    15% of 200000 According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is a growing trend for older employees to delay retirement and therefore work longer. This has implications for employees of all ages. In 2000, 12.9% of people older than 65 were in the workforce. By 2010 that number grew to 17.4% and by 2020 that number is predicted to be 22.6%.

    The biggest problem facing truck drivers today is finding the right company to drive for, who will deliver what they promise. Unfortunately, over the road driving needs to be looked at very diligently by new drivers before signing on with a carrier. The 128% turn over rate speaks for itself. Knowing what to look for, understanding how the trucking industry works and thinks and knowing what to expect out of a life in trucking, will help you make the right choice in a trucking career BEFORE you sign on the dotted line.
