“Experts Citing Rising Hopes For Economy” by Sewell Chan (TIMES, 12/24/10)


          With little expectation of an imporvement in the employment situation, Republicans continue to accentuate the positive when they discuss the economy. Unemployment will remain high in 2011 but there will be a recovery, they predict; but how can this be so?

          If the unemployment rate remains above nine percent throughout next year, as they are saying, there can hardly be a recovery. Sewell Chan then concluded his column with a quote from Republican representative Kevin Brady of Texas: “Consumer confidence seems to be on the upswing and business angst is dropping…It hasn’t swung into the confidence column yet, but the negativity is lowering.”
