Great person. Hope he moves up the ladder. The GDP should write more about this guy. Young and smart. In fact, he should be invited to write a column for this paper instead of Robinson.

Regardless of guarantees that the recession is supposedly over, there is still a much higher-than-normal joblessness rate.
