    Unemployment
    A main effect of the recession is unemployment. In 2010, the Unemployment rat in the U.S is at 9.7%. “More than half a million Americans found work, a Labor Department report showed yesterday in Washington, helping push the jobless rate to the lowest since August. A separate survey of employers showed payrolls declined by 20,000 as construction companies and state and local governments cut back” (Business Week). Manufacturers are hiring for the first time in three years, which is hoped to start the stock market back up. Companies are saying that the new payrolls will not go as high as they were before the drop-offs, and one company is saying how there is no structure to the recovery.

    The Recession
    {recession.jpg}
    The economy is taking a dive in the United States; it is the biggest recession since the Great Depression. Much of the cause to the recession was the terrorist attacks in 2001 that demolished the World Trade Centers, which crippled the trade between the U.S. and other countries not allowing money to come in and money spent on the war overseas.

    TheT {johnroberts.jpg} he New Chief
    A new term opened with John Roberts as the new Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. The 50-year-old Roberts will lead a bench on which seven of the current nine members are over 65. Only Clarence Thomas, at 57, approaches him in age (CNN). Since John Roberts is the youngest people believe he will be there for a while. “One thing that will help Roberts in the transition is that he clerked for then-Associate Justice William Rehnquist in 1980-81, and colleagues say the young lawyer learned valuable lessons in law and leadership from his mentor. Rehnquist died September 3 after battling thyroid cancer for months. Two days later, Roberts was nominated to replace him. Years ago, when preparing for cases, the two men would walk together on the court grounds or Capitol Hill and discuss the issues” (CNN). This shows that the Chief Justice was a good decision considering he was learning from the old Chief Justice and was very aware of some of the issues that he might see.
    Roberts wants to increase the caseload of the Supreme Court because they only hear approximately 80 appeals a year and a lot of people think that the court is ignoring many issues that are very important. Roberts has heard two really large cases, one about abortion, and another about assisted suicide.
