On November 15, 1777 the representatives of the thirteen original colonies adopted the Articles of Confederation. Itprovidedstructure for aloose association of independent states,enabling themto cooperate on specific matterswhile maintaining individual state sovereignty. The Articles of Confederation failed for a number of reasons. Among those reasonswere,the inability ofthe national government to tax, regulate interstate and foreign commerce, and provide for central leadership. One major event that signaled the failings of the Articles was Shays Rebellion,an armed uprisingthat took place in Massachusettsin 1786 and 1787.Daniel Shay, a Revolutionary War veteran and Massachusetts farmer was being forced into foreclosure on his farm as the state raised taxes and interest rates to cover its war debt. Shay and fellow protesters shut down county courts to stop the judicial hearings for tax and debt collection.The governments inability to deal with the issues leading up to the rebellion signaled a break down in order and signaled that a new structure was needed. The countrywas becomingungovernable. Today, 226 years laterAmericans faceyetanother threatened shutdown of the governmentbut this time theres a difference. Shays Rebellion was an uprising led by a small band of citizens against the established order, the government. Today, the anticipated shutdown is being led by a small band of elected officials who are more focused on their narrow political ideology than operating in the best interest of the American people.They are also willing to misrepresent the facts and lie totheAmerican people to make their case.Congress unwillingness to work with the Executive Branch and its inability to pass legislation is a clear indication that once again, the country is becoming ungovernable. Conservative Republicans in the House of Representatives have passed a bill linking the continued funding of the government to the unrelated defunding of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is the posterboy for the conservative opposition to the ACA.

NCR believes that the decision of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, in Appleton Papers Inc. v. George A. Whiting Paper Co., No. 08-C-16 (E.D. Wis.), properly concluded that sales of CCP broke were sales of a useful product and not an arrangement to dispose of a hazardous material under CERCLA.

The ongoing recovery period started with a strong temporary job growth, a result of the severe contraction during the recession and subsequent rebound afterwards. However, the rate has stabilized recently at around 6%, consistent with a better economic environment. Employment placement agencies, executive search services and professional employer organizations will experience growth as the unemployment rate increases the competition for available jobs and some industries continue to experience shortages of skilled workers. Management & Technical Consulting Services (5416), Computer Systems Design & Related Services (5415). Both industries benefit from healthy corporate profits and ongoing investments in equipment and software. These trends will be reinforced by better economic conditions and ongoing technological progress. Going forward, U.S. firms are expected to continue investing in productivity enhancers in order to remain competitive in the global economy. Bottom Line Our ranking of industries based on employment growth confirms that industries that are positively driven by a combination of demographic trends, global demand and innovation are most likely to experience above average growth in the following years (table 2). However, because this analysis is based merely on employment, the ranking ignores other industries with strong potential such as freight transportation, medical device manufacturing or scrap metal recycling. The ranking also confirms our positive views on the healthcare and oil and gas industries, while shedding new light on opportunities emerging in education support services, and internet publishing and advertising.
