J. Bruce Llewellyn Dies

I was pretty young when I was inspired by J. Bruce Llewellyn who ran the coke-cola bottling operation in Philadelphia.

Another neighbor lost his job

It is kind of funny when they talk about the recession. It is really a recession among the middle and even the upper middle class. This time the recession has reached a little higher.

My neighbor, the real estate lawyer, lost his job. He used to do locations for large big box retailers: sporting goods stores, toys, outlets, retailers, and new specialty retailers. Now he got cut. Another neighbor across the street used to marketing and advertising and now he drives a limo to the airport. Both are set since their wives work and the house is almost payed for but I can see loss of pride.

Both will be fine in the long run, but short term they have to cut back. The kids will get collage but not ivy league. No more eating out or movies. But I can see the psychological blow taking it toll. One guy has not hair and the other is prematurely grey. Well good luck to both.


Were back !!!

We Are Back

It has been a tough month and a half with the new job, travel, kids, volunteer job and other stuff going on. I have been working about 65 hours a week for three week. It has been crazy.

But we are back and dedicated to bring you the best blogging on Black Economics. Whether is Obama's latest, BLS new reports, key people, wealth management, consumer trends or other interesting topics we will be covering it. We will have more links, more analysis and more explaining what the heck is going on. The focus will be the same: bridging the gap between complicated real life economics, complex economic theory and every day life for Blacks in the US.

All the best
