Recent discussion of economics

Recently, I ran through this with an engineer that I worked with and it seemed like news to him, so I thought I would share it with you.

Do you want to know how the economy is really doing?
  • Do a quick job search -- look for the position that you would target for your next job. How many openings do you find?

  • Do a quick search for apartments in your area. Think about your "minimum requirements"... How much is your monthly rent these days?
While this isn't an exact science, if you do it once a week (or maybe once a month), you'll get a better idea of what the economy is doing -- or you'll get a few of the statistics that matter -- what the economy means to you.
