Two Rules | Rule #1 Do Not Lose Your Principal | Rule #2 See Rule #1

Middle-aged people laid off and unable to find work are taking another way out. They’re killing themselves.Suicide rates are soaring, according to federal data released last week. Especially in economically depressed states and job-starved upstate New York. People in need of work are twice as likely to take their own lives as employed people, and people fired in their 40s and 50s find it hardest to get hired again.That makes boosting economic growth a life-or-death issue for many.
