Where Have All The
Jobs Gone?


Most jobs created in the U.S. over the past two
decades are in Housing, Finance, and Service


Most of
the
jobs
lost are
not

coming back to the
level they were; not any time soon


How are new jobs created in the future?





We will have much to discuss following
the presentations to come….
