Boring nerds for a boring economy
Here's a question for you Bonddad. The magic number I always hear in terms of how many jobs the economy needs to produce to keep up with population growth is 150,000. But I've been hearing about that number since at least 2000, before this B/D modeling came into play. So when we're hearing today with the added jobs from the B/D model that we're creating 150,000 jobs, is that really an apples/apples comparison? Or does the B/D model inflate the number, making that 150,000 jobs number somewhat less clear?
