A quarterly survey by the National Association for Business Economics released Monday shows half of the economists polled now expect real gross domestic product the value of all goods and services produced in the United States to grow between 2 and 4 percent in 2013.

About half expect sluggish or negative performance, down from 65 percent in October.

2. Well I hope so...

The end of next month it will be 18 months since I had a job - unless of course I find one between now and the end of February. It took my best friend - an IT person - 18 months to land a job. He just went back to work this month.
The beginning of the month there were a load of jobs and there seem to still be quite a few so I suppose it is looking better - I'll see.
