The economy declined the first quarter 2.9%. Why?

Great job by the Administration. The tea party wants 2008 back to have something to be mad about.

I hope we can put the partisan bickering on hold for moment and celebrate what is certainly good news for everyone. Who cares who gets the credit?

The economy is growing. More people aren't looking for jobs so they don't count as unemployed.

"The economy declined the first quarter 2.9%. Why?"

Many good reason.

Weather slowed construction projects- reducing demand for hard goods.

Fewer goods being sold decreased demand for transportation.

Weather kept people from going out as much... they hunkered down at home - reducing eating out, movies, and many forms of discretionary impending.

For some reason it doesn't surprise me that the DN and Foxnews didn't have this as front page news - the fastest job growth rate over a 5 month period since 1999 when the tech bubble was going on. Which begs the question... why?

Yeah, as lost in DC pointed out, all jobs are not the same. I didn't notice in this article any indication of just what kind of jobs these are that are being added. I doubt that the big paying high tech ones have been replaced. And truth is, our current work force is smaller now than it has been in the past. And with a much bigger population, the simple fact is, a lot less people are working today. These numbers are not telling the whole story.
