Top links: Economist DeLong ‘very afraid’ for U.S. recovery

A roundup of what The Globe and Mail's market strategist Scott Barlow is reading this morning on the World Wide Web.

University of California Berkeley economics professor Brad DeLong is extremely concerned about U.S. employment, particularly for younger age groups. He notes that females in the 25-54 demographic have only recovered one-ninth of the jobs relative to before the financial crisis and males in the same cohort have only recovered 40 per cent of the jobs.
