Why is this happening?

I got laid off about a month ago in NYC. Applied for unemployment insurance and got approved, no problems. Now I got a letter from the UI agency from my former former employer (2 employers ago) declining my claim and requesting a hearing on the basis that I voluntarily quit. This is true, and I was laid off from the place I worked at after that employer. Why is this happening? [more inside]

Why is unemployment being extended 7 weeks longer than it can be received?

Unemployment benefits have been extended 33 weeks in many states so some people will receive 26 + 33 weeks of unemployment. From the little I understand about how unemployment works, an unemployment benefit year is 52 weeks long. What is the point of extending unemployment to 59 weeks if seven of those weeks can't be claimed?

Weimar, USA?

Okay, don't know much 'bout economics, so can somebody please explain to me in simple terms how, with the US treasury handing out trillion-dollar bailouts like lollipops, the unemployment rate skyrocketing (thereby removing the real wealth generators from the economy) and no country in the world crazy enough to lend us a cent -- HOW can we possibly not wind up with hyper (and by hyper, I mean Weimar-style) inflation, sooner rather than later?

Help Me Hunt a Headhunter

I'm a post-Ph.D. (not computer science, alas, but history) and have decided to seek my fortune outside academia. I have lots of experience organizing and researching and analyzing and presenting and teaching all sorts of things in all sorts of contexts, and have made my CV into a resume that shows I'm not just another egghead. Unfortunately, I'm coming up empty handed after several months of a full-court press, and I'm thinking it's time to contact headhunting/recruiting agencies that might be interested in someone like me. I'd love your thoughts and suggestions on which firms to contact in the New York area. [more inside]
