James Galbraith has a piece in Salon on the much-criticized job growth prediction made by the Bush administration at the end of last year. Unfortunately, after reading it I didn’t really get the point that he was trying to make, other than that he believes the current employment problems are structural rather than cyclical and that it will take a commitment to some policy that he doesn’t exactly define to fix them. Hopefully some of the economists with weblogs will decipher this a bit. If they do, I’ll link to them.
