This may just be the start of a serious recovery in the job market. According to University of Michigan economists, the economy could add as many as 3.5 million jobs over the next two years. These jobs will largely come from an automotive industry retooling to make smaller cars, and a booming alternative energy industry. Let's hope these economists are right.
