Another Old Unpublished Paper | The Blogora
Offered here, sans footnotes (I couldn't figure out the formatting, but if anyone wants the full paper, I'll be happy to email it). I partly disavow this now, because it was written before the "behavioral economics" revolution that definitively called into question the assumptions of rational choice, but I think the discussion of ideology might still have some relevance. Toward a Positive Economic Theory of Rhetorical Action Paper presented at Rhetoric Society of America convention Las Vegas, Nevada, May 2002 Since the 1960's "rhetoric" has functioned as a "dialectical term," in ... market research, surveys and trends
Institutional Economics: 'Light Reading It's Not' - Forbes
Ben-Ami maintains that, rather than challenging growth scepticism, the 2008 recession gave it greater impetus. The growth-sceptic outlook that prevailed prior to the downturn encouraged us to explain it by reference to unbridled greed, instead of structural economic factors. And this greed and excess were said to characterise all of us, not just a few bankers. Ben-Ami cites Neal Lawson of the UK Labour Party-linked think-tank Compass, whose book All Consuming criticises mass consumption. The subtitle of Lawson’s book – ‘How shopping got us into this mess and how we can find our way out’ – makes it ... market research, surveys and trends

 Thousands of workers paraded in both Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua City in honor of the May Day holiday. While union members heard speeches commemorating their traditional day, many others, including children, were out on the streets working.

According to the Center for the Attention of Border Minors (CAMEF) more than 2,000 children work every day outside their homes in Ciudad Juarez. An estimated 400 children labor as street vendors, car washers, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Dwindling Census Hiring Will Lower June Payrolls
expects the U.S. employment report for June, scheduled for release on July 2, to show a 140,000 decline in nonfarm payrolls on the month. The main factor will be a hefty 240,000 drop in government employment, reflecting a 226,000 decline in census hiring. Our forecast also includes what could be seen as a relatively optimistic 100,000 rise in private payrolls that will outpace the 41,000 gain in May, though it would fall short of the 218,000 jump in April and the 158,000 gain in March. We expect the jobless rate to rise to 9.8 percent, from 9.7 percent, the average workweek to hold at 34.2 hours, and average hourly earnings to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Economists React: 'Not an Encouraging Mix' in GDP Report
of a downward adjustment to consumer spending and higher than originally reported imports, which were only partly offset by upward revisions to exports and inventories. The composition of this report will not cause anyone to change their fundamental view of the economy. The biggest debate is over the path of the labor market recovery and hence the ability of consumers to help drive real growth. Time will tell whether the job market recovery will be a mirror image of the steep decline seen earlier, or if it will, as we believe, be a prolonged affair, with private sector job creation taking some time to gain significant traction ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What happened to all the entry level economics jobs? | Ask MetaFilter
I'm a recent graduate with an undergrad degree in economics. Where can I find an economics-related job that doesn't require a PhD? Location doesn't matter much, I just need a job. Here's the deal, I just graduated and I've been mostly searching for a specifically economics related job (economist/statistician). Just a month ago there were a ton of entry level economist jobs. However, at the time I was trying to find jobs in my home state (hawaii). While that turned out to be mostly unsuccessful, I've decided to reexamine those economist jobs out of state. However, upon looking today I've ...
