Why More Money Printing Will Increase Unemployment / Economics / Unemployment

By: Michael_Pento

Money Printing Doesn’t Create Jobs
The developed world’s central banks are now foolishly preparing for a full assault on their respective currencies in an attempt to lower unemployment rates. Spurring these central bankers into action is persistently anemic markets and employment data, which they believe can be rectified by creating inflation.

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims fell 26,000 during the week ended July 7 to 350,000. The sharp decline would be bullish if in fact it was not distorted by the July 4 holiday and fewer summer auto plant shutdowns. Typically in the summer, auto plant shutdowns and return of auto workers causes wide swings in jobless claims numbers.

Unemployment as a Lifestyle / Politics / Unemployment

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll one hears is that the lack of jobs is the number one economic problem. Well documented are endless examples of systemic destruction in employment opportunities. The negative consequences of off shoring corporate jobs are undeniable. Up until now, the little attention placed on the psychological mindsets that build the structural impediments for a healthy main street economy, keep a serious discussion on jobs, just going in circles.

U.S. Payroll's Disaster Made Worse by Grossly Distorted Unemployment Statistics / Economics / Unemployment

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJobs +69,000, Employment Rate +.1 to 8.2%, April Jobs Revised Lower to +77,000; Long-term Unemployment +310,000

Quick Notes About the Unemployment Rate

  • US Unemployment Rate rose .01 to 8.2%
  • In the last year, the civilian population rose by 3,653,000. Yet the labor force only rose by 1,307,000. Those not in the labor force rose by 2,345,000.
  • This month the Civilian Labor Force rose by 642,000.
  • Those "Not in Labor Force" decreased by 461,000. If you are not in the labor force, you are not counted as unemployed.
  • Those "Not in Labor Force" fell to 87,958,000 from last month's record high of 88,419,000.
  • By the Household Survey, the number of people employed rose by 422,000.
  • By the Household Survey, over the course of the last year, the number of people employed rose by 2,479,000.
  • Participation Rate rose .2 to 63.8%
  • There are 8,098,000 workers who are working part-time but want full-time work, an increase of 245,000
  • Thus of the the net of 422,000 people presumably hired by the household survey, 245,000 were for part-time jobs.
  • Long-Term unemployment (27 weeks and over) rose by 310,000.
  • Were it not for people dropping out of the labor force, the unemployment rate would be well over 11%.

Europe An Accident Waiting to Happen, or 'Ever Closer To The Cliff'! / Economics / Unemployment

By: Ian_R_Campbell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy Read: Because Youth Unemployment has to be at or near the top of both near-term and long-term economic issues that must be addressed, or if they aren't, bring the 'edge of the economic and societal cliff' ever closer.

Featured Article: A May 14 article focuses on Europe's youth unemployment numbers. The article reports that not only do many European countries currently suffer from serious youth unemployment rates, but also points out that while this may be a somewhat exacerbated problem currently, it is not a new phenomenon in many European countries. For example, the article reports that while youth unemployment rates have reached 51% in Greece and Spain, 36% in Italy, and 30% in Ireland, the average youth unemployment rate for the past 40 years has been:

U.S. Systemic Jobs Crisis / Economics / Unemployment

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJoseph Kishore writes: Only 115,000 jobs were added in the US in April, according to Friday’s report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This was significantly below expectations, and was the smallest gain in six months. It was well below the revised figure of 154,000 jobs added in March.

The official unemployment rate, which bears little resemblance to the actual level of joblessness, fell from 8.2 to 8.1 percent. This was due largely to the fact that more people gave up looking for work, and therefore are not counted as unemployed.

Making 9 Million Jobless 'Vanish': How The U.S. Government Manipulates Unemployment Statistics / Economics / Unemployment

By: Dan_Amerman


Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen we look at broad measures of jobs and population, then the beginning of 2012 was one of the worst months in US history, with a total of 2.3 million people losing jobs or leaving the workforce in a single month. Yet, the official unemployment rate showed a decline from 8.5% to 8.3% in January - and was such cheering news that it set off a stock rally.

How can there be such a stark contrast between the cheerful surface and an underlying reality that is getting worse?

Different Measures of U.S. Unemployment, but Consistent Story is Visible / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe civilian unemployment rate declined to 8.3% in January from 8.5% in the prior month and is noticeably lower than the year ago reading of 9.1% (see Chart 1). The jobless rate in the Great Recession peaked at 10.0% in October 2009. The elevated unemployment after ten quarters of economic growth remains one of the top concerns of the Fed. Frequently, measures of unemployment different from the headline number are cited to drive home the message that the underlying fundamentals of the labor market are softer than what is inferred from the official rate. The aim of today’s comment is to sort out the different measures of unemployment and draw a meaningful conclusion of the status of the labor market.

Increase in Initial U.S. Jobless Claims Could be a Timing Issue / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims rose 24,000 to 399,000 during the first week of the year. Timing could be playing role in the large increase of initial jobless claims. The four-week moving average at 381,750 will be tracked closely to estimate if the recent downward trend of initial jobless claims has been reversed or if it is beginning of the year distortion. Continuing claims, which lag initial jobless claims by one week, moved up 19,000 to 3.628 million.

Given this state of affairs, if the working class wishes to continue its struggle with some chance of success, the national organisations must become international.” (Karl Marx)
