No recession signs for US IT jobs


With the US trade war with China and slowing growth, particularly in manufacturing, some economists believe the US is heading towards recession as 2020 approaches. According to the National Association for Business Economics, there's a 60 percent chance the country's decade run of expansion will see a downturn at the end of next year.

But the IT industry seems unabated by such forecasts. According to research and data collected by Janco Associates, 102,400 IT jobs will be added in 2019, as CIOs and CEOs budget for increased headcounts and approve the use of outside contractors and consultants for 2020.

At the same time, there is an ample supply of skilled and qualified professionals to fill those roles - while more active recruiting in the sector seeing a compression of pay grades for some key positions.

Will Bitcoin or Facebook'entry imact national currencies

Bitcoin and electronic currency  development have a number of unique challenges

Electronic Currency ChallengesThe promise of a cheap, anonymous, distributed, fiat cryptocurrency that is detached from any country’s sovereignty is a pipe dream. It will never happen as the impact bitcoin has been minimal since itfirst hit the market in 2009. People will play with it, some businesses will accept it, fortunes will be made and lost, but it isn’t a threat to any nation’s fiat currency on that level.
