Frey says recession has left Americans uncharacteristically "flat-footed"

a PSC In The News reference, 2010

"From hoarding to hiring: Some countries have successfully preserved jobs. Now they must create new ones " - The Economist. 10/07/2010.

This special report from The Economist looks at cross-national unemployment, finding that the U.S. experience differs remarkably from other OECD countries such as Germany. The report examines a variety of economic, social, and policy factors. Bill Frey comments on Americans' post-recession tendency to stay put rather than move to where the jobs are.
