Speaking with Marketwatch's Rex Nutting, I learned yet another incredible
datapoint: Over the past decade, the U.S. private-sector has lost 203,000

That's right: Zero job growth for 10 years.

In the 1940s, we created 10 million jobs. In the 1990s, we added 19 million
new jobs. Even during the much-maligned 1970s, we added almost 16 million

The government has created 2.1 million jobs over that period - primarily
teachers. And, that's the weakest government job growth in nearly two

Happy Labor Day!
