Growing the economy

2009-08-18 11:46:56.028545+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

TechCrunch has a number of fluffy little graphs put together based on data collected by some new search engine on job seekers versus job offerings. Totally unscientific, bla bla bla, but it does put Washington DC on the top of the list by a large margin. Nothing that's created there is actually sold (well, okay, influence is sold, but it's really created back in the home districts). This does not bode well for the solidity of the economic recovery.
