NEW YORK Businesses expect to boost hiring and capital spending in the first half of the year as the U.S. recovery from the recession slowly continues, according to a new survey.

Since the fall of 2009 demand has edged higher in the goods-producing, finance and real estate industries, while other sectors such as transportation are seeing less drastic declines in growth. While costs have been increasing, prices also have moved higher, allowing businesses to post improved profits. Job losses, meanwhile, have been moderating with a slightly better outlook for hiring over the next six months.

1. But the gubermint tells us a different story even when they manipulate the numbers.
From the BLS (Boldly Lying Statistics):

"Regional and state unemployment rates were generally higher in
December. 43 states and the District of Columbia recorded
over-the-month unemployment rate increases,
4 states registered
rate decreases, and 3 states had no rate change, the U.S. Bureau
of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the year, jobless rates
increased in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

In December, nonfarm payroll employment increased in 11 states and
the District of Columbia and decreased in 39 states."
