Good, but...


There are many different and complicated ways of measuring income.

Many serious experts do not accept the idea that wages have been going down.

Including me ( a not-so serious expert )

Ben:

I am no economics expert, but I do talk to a lot of people in various economic situations. My far less than scientific sample tells me that some people have been doing okay - those in upper middle income jobs like management, major media journalism, and technology that have owned their homes for a number of years.

I have also talked a good deal with people who have not been doing so well - those people in skilled labor positions, teachers, those who work the cash registers, and those who are just starting out and looking for their first homes.

Certainly a mixed bag, but one where it is understandable that there are many people that have not been satisfied with the performance of the economy.

Mr. Wattenberg -

There are plenty of underpaid computer geeks who would love to teach you some HTML.

This would really help to improve the appearance and coherence of this blog. If you knew some HTML, you could link to others' commentaries and posts.

Outsourcing has hurt the wages of many computer pros.
