1. So... I recall from the 2009-10 years that we must add 145K jobs just to maintain.

That number was the baseline, and when we were missing that by a little or barely exceeding it, CNBC and Faux would get wound up. (Despite the steady improvement and the depths of the crash.)

Numbers like that would have gotten their "anemic" rating then. (Not that I have a problem; I know that there's no such thing as perpetual growth without dire consequences. I'd rather we aim for homeostasis and sustainability than explosive growth.)
