Getting better
The job markets are getting much better now. I am an I.T. Support and there are many jobs out there. I had a few interviews which is very good.

Re: High Unemployment NYC
Unemployment and underemployment have been around for a long time. Unfortunately, it looks like it's here to stay--but let's hope that something can be done to alleviate the situation and soon.

The concept of a barter economy sounds interesting and I'm sure it will bring about changes in society overall, and not just from the economic standpoint. Many will probably be going to that direction if things don't improve soon.

Re: High Unemployment NYC
You might find these sites interesting:

http://www.shareable.net/

http://www.triplepundit.com/

I came across them the other day in one of those browsing/surfing sessions that I still indulge in every now and then. They are having a campaign to raise money for some articles on a Sharing Economy.

I think it's an exciting concept. I have no affiliiation with these sites nor have I thoroughly vetted them, but the idea and the people look not only legit but exciting to me.

Re: High Unemployment NYC
@NewDream: Interesting. I wonder is there a place for a web site called eBarter for that sort of activity.

Re: High Unemployment NYC
The whole point of a barter economy is that it doesn't get taxed. People can't afford the taxes anymore. If they ever could.

The underclasses need to develop their own solutions to getting by.

Re: High Unemployment NYC
@NewDream: Is there really a barter economy being developed and if so, how does the transaction get taxed..?

Re: High Unemployment NYC
Mary, as we move more and more to a berter economy, the accuracy of statistics on employment will only get worse.

Re: High Unemployment NYC
Too true, NewDream.

As to underemployment, I hear you all. Statistics can only camouflage a problem for so long, however. The truth starts to bleed through the bandaid.
