2010: It's going to be about jobs, jobs and, oh yeah, jobs.

"Total profits of U.S. corporations, as compiled by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis, were at $1.50 trillion in the fourth quarter of 2007 and reached $1.59 trillion in the first quarter of 2010. Over that same period, the country lost 8.2 million jobs, or 5.9% of the job base. In other words, about one out of 20 jobs has simply disappeared:" -- Corporate profits have recovered, but job market still depressed by Lawrence Mishel (Economic Policy Institute 2010-07-14).
