The economy is improving, but it's going to take a while for job numbers to catch up. That’s according to Bill Valentine of Valentine Ventures. He says the President doesn't need to urge business to invest in more workers.   That will naturally happen as the economy rebounds: “Reality is that you don't need to tell business to put money to work. That is a natural thing. That’s like telling a rabbit to pro-create, that's in their blood, that's what they want to do. Reality is you don't have to tell business to put the money to work. Businesses look into the future and determine if there is something they need to do to increase productivity or ramp up my business.” Valentine does not agree with a belief that commercial real estate will be the next sector to fall.   He says high value properties are moving, prices are starting to come back up but the lesser value buildings will continue to be empty for a while.
