We actually had more jobs created last month than the population increased, just barely. There is nothing to cheer about unless it was you that found a job. There is no magic trend line, it takes a manufacturing base to have a modern economy and we don't have one.
The USDA is predicting a record corn crop but not any decline in food prices because of it. The USD is continuing to weaken and oil is up again. We have an ever larger surplus of gasoline as demand weakens and we already had record supplies but the price continues to go up.
Supply and Demand only works in a market of equals which never occurs in nature.
