Tonight we get the State of The Union. I don’t care about the speech or the politics. I do care about the actual state of the country. Here’s how I see the state of the union and a couple of other things.
State of the Union (Country) – Mature and overburdened with debt and a bloated political system.
State of the Economy (Business Conditions) – Pretty good, at least for the time being. Recovered from the bubble burst and moving forward with an anchor of debt and some other issues holding it back, but still pretty good. Hardened and stronger from the experience of the bubble burst.
State of the Recruiting Industry – Pretty good. Not only are business conditions better, but some time has gone by since the bubble burst to let everything soak in. Probably smaller, so it feels much more efficient.
