Great news! People are being hired! In an article from CNNMoney.com it states that the Department of Labor said on Friday that 169,000 jobs were added in August by the US economy. The unemployment rate also fell to 7.3% but this is largely due to the fact 312,000 people have dropped out of the labor force.
There is an improvement over the 104,000 jobs that were added in July, but the increase is still less than economists were expecting.
Stocks also rose with the reporting of the weak increase in jobs, even though the jobs that people are being hired in are in the weaker, lower paying sectors of the economy.

San Diego is a beautiful city, and for those of us who live here it is heaven on earth. We have beautiful weather most of the year, we have wonderful places to visit on the weekends, and we have less traffic than Los Angeles (so that is a major plus).
The problem is that tourism in San Diego has taken a hit. The San Diego Tourism Authority is on a tight budget, with a large portion of that budget frozen due to litigation challenging a citywide tourism marketing levy, the Tourism Authority has had to cut its work force to nearly half.
The Tourism Authority has had to make other cuts including in marketing, where the budget was at one point $3million and is now $1.5 million. Marketing promotes our city with television ads in other states, and sends PR representatives to drum up unpaid media coverage. This is a major loss for the city's revenue which depends a lot on tourism.

It should come as no surprise that in today’s economic situation most Americans would rather keep their savings in cash… But according to CNN Money this is a “big mistake.”
The article entitled “Uh-oh: Americans favor cash over stocks for long-term investments,” says that “26% of Americans prefer cash” (in the bank) to investing in stocks for their nest egg money.
According to the CNN Money article, people feel like with the state of the economy it is safer to keep their money “building” interest in the bank, which sounds reasonable actually. Yet, according to the article, because of the low interest rates, returns on your safely kept money will be minimal ten years down the line.
Now risking your hard earned money on stocks that are always going up and down can seem a bit counterintuitive, but the risk can yield high rewards.
The article focuses on the fact that investing in stocks with a probability of high yield will be a better way to prepare for retirement. The closer someone is to retirement the more someone should be investing in stocks (at least more than he or she had done before), this is so that even though he or she might not be working their money at least still is.
According to an article by Jonathan Horn of the Union Tribune, our amazing state of California is not generating enough funds from the state tax. Now that seems completely crazy considering that California has the highest sales tax rate in the US, but the state's Legislative Analyst's Office has said that Californian's are spening more on non taxable services and less on taxable goods.
It seems that even though the cost of non taxable services has gone up in the last decade, what hasn't really gone up is the price on taxable goods (which means inflation has not caught up). This means that the state does not have enough funds to go around all the municipalities in the state.
