Jobless claims reaching pre-recession levels.
This graph sums up the economic recovery:

The jobless claims last week were the lowest since the recession started. This is a huge development and it's interesting to track the entire recession.

RE: Jobless claims reaching pre-recession levels.
ou know, with all the bitter arguments people have had during this recovery, it's interesting to remember that the consensus back when this started was that it would be far worse than past recessions where the word "jobless recovery" had already been bandied about. I don't know if we're on schedule with those predictions, but the general trend seems to match the predictions. That said, great numbers - it's nice to be able to fret less about this - it's been a long time coming.

Confirmed, Fox "news" makes you stupid

The ones you are noticing are more terrified than anything else. They are lashing out because they are comfortable; and to acknowledge what is happening is a threat to that comfort. Ignore them, for they are not the voices that will rise in the coming days, months and years. They are not the voices of our collected humanity. They are the old voices of fear and impotence. - Anonymous

We're definitely improving, slowly but surely.
