Ali Velshi and Jessica Yellin on unemployment.

January 11, 2010

My private thoughts as a psychologist about  how to find jobs stood out in contrast to the public comments by Ali Velshi or Jessica Yelling on CNN this morning.  Don’t get me wrong, these two economic pundits do a great job for CNN. Media thrives on satisfying public expectations within social norms, unlike people, who thrive by carving their own path in economic life.  My listeners, and CNN listeners, live in different economic worlds; the private domain where we set our own rules and the public domain where we follow the rules of society. People who have secure and successful careers live within the context of their own rules. The unemployed, under-employed, employed, skilled, semi-skilled or unskilled, live within the context of society’s norms. Both groups may watch CNN, but guess which group take what Ali Velshi or Jessica Yellin seriously? (I will continued to explain the psychological differences between the private and the public domains for the benefit of those who want to ‘carve’ careers for themselves than struggle).

      The more people like my ideas, the more I devote time to expressing them, the more people benefit, the more I feel good. Take care.
