Here’s a pre-Christmas sampler of economic and workforce-oriented articles that we’ve paid attention to of late:

  • The New York Times’ Economix blog looks at numbers of “permament” and “casual” workers in the US.

  • New migration numbers are out, and the news isn’t good for Florida, Nevada, and California specifically. The big winner: Texas. “It added more people from home and abroad than any other state this year — 231,539. That is more than Florida, Arizona, California, Nevada and Colorado, combined.”

  •’s Joel Kotkin writes about the green movement and its “deep-seated misanthropy.”

  • The Wall Street Journal has this piece on the revival of the RV market in Elkhart County, Indiana, where the unemployment rate has dropped from 18.9% to 14.5%.
