    With regard to the chart comparing current job loss to composite (2007-09 Compared to Post WW2 Composite)

    Thanks for posting this Barry. The Chart Store has put together some unique views not previously seen (e.g. the trend for different groups of workers as a percent of all private works) These add some new insights and understanding to the jobs picture.

Viewing PBS’s Frontline “Top Secret America” tonight piqued my curiosity to know what REAL ‘Total Government Payrolls’ and ‘Total Federal Government Payrolls’ would be if all the “black site” employees, contractors and operations were included. Since their operating budgets are Top Secret, there’s no way of knowing without more transparency, but one can well envision a notable bump in unemployment if we brought home 30-50 percent of the ‘private contractors’ (i.e. soldiers of fortune and other war profiteers) and ground troops from Af/Pak/Iraq.
