At the current rate of job loss and business closure....within 12-18 months, MOST of the private sector jobs will be lost.  However, based on massive leverage, it is likely the closing and job loss will accelerate going forward.....especially in the public sector as tax receipts evaporate further exacerbating the strain on the economy.

This is not conjecture.....simply the math of Concentric Contraction resulting from the Zombulator causing Zombulation.  And you are being told the recession is over????

Ostensibly, apartment vacancies are up because more people can truly afford a mortgage now that rates are at historical lows.

On the other hand, 09.09.09, a day that will live in obscurity.

That is less than last year as the contraction continues......and many of the jobs paying only $7.25 per hour....after withholding, few will be able to afford rent and food if they lived on their own.... not to mention of cost of getting to work.

The irony, if they actually needed the money, they would be better off on welfare and food stamps.

At some point...revenues to government will become so low that the life as we know it will change.....the only question now is how?

Actually vacancies are up and foreclosures are up.....not a good combination......from any perspective as fewer and fewer can afford simply property taxes and maintenance, even if they own their house free and clear without a mortgage.......that is clearly the case at $7.25 per hour.

Apartment vacancies have been rising along with home foreclosures as there is a decreasing demand for all types of housing. Inter-generational housing has been on the rise as a way to cope with current economic conditions.

Ah, so the way out of this mess is to bring the republicans back and stifle innovative leglislation that calls for a bit of corporate pain so that Joe the plumber can get painkillers better subsidized.

If you see how wrong that statement is, maybe you can start to empathize with me.
