Why Is U.S. Unemployment So High? / Economics / Unemployment

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryone knows that the unemployment situation is very bad, but the official figures (not surprisingly) understate the problem. In this article I'll outline the severity of the stalled labor market, and explain some of the major causes.

U.S. Real Unemployment Rate 10.2%, Underemployment at 20% / Economics / Unemployment

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am very skeptical of BLS unemployment rates inching lower. Not only do the BLS reports discount millions of marginally attached and discouraged workers but BLS seasonal adjustments seem more than a bit unusual.

U.S. Jobless Claims, Too Soon to Question if Decline Represents Reversal of Trend / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims rose 26,000 to 397,000 during the week ended March 5.  The Labor Department noted that President's Day holiday in the prior week could have moved claims into the latest weekly count.  The four-week moving average of initial jobless claims offers an alternative in the event of temporary distortions.

15 Tips for Staying Sane While Unemployed / Personal_Finance / Unemployment

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is nothing easy about being unemployed. It is stressful. It depletes your sense of self-confidence and takes away any feeling of financial stability that you may once have had. The longer that unemployment drags on, the more it feels like it’s going to make you crazy. However, there are many things that you can do to keep your sanity even while you’re unemployed. While it may sometimes be tough to motivate yourself to do these things, doing so will improve your mental health during your job search and make you a more appealing candidate at those interviews!

U.S. Initial Jobless Claims Show Noticeable Improvement / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims fell 20,000 to 368,000 during the week ended February 27.  This reading is the lowest since May 2008 (see Chart 8).  Continuing claims, which lag initial jobless claims by one week, declined 59,000 to 3.774 million, the lowest since October 2008 (see Chart 9).  Both of these readings suggest a noticeable improvement in the labor market.  The number of applicants obtaining unemployment insurance under the special programs increased roughly 57,000 for the week ended February 13.

Ten Reasons Why it is So Difficult to Find a Job in America Today / Economics / Unemployment

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHave you been unemployed lately? If so, then you probably know how frustrating it is to try to find a job in the United States today. It now takes the average unemployed worker about 33 weeks to find a job. There are millions of Americans that have not been able to find a full-time job even after searching hard for an entire year. Some areas of the United States have been devastated so badly by the economic downturn that they are starting to resemble war zones. Unless you have been there, it is hard to even try to describe the extreme frustration that one feels when you are unable to pay the mortgage and feed your family. It can be absolutely soul-crushing.

Weather Distorts Initial Jobless Claims / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims fell 36,000 to 383,000 during the week ended February 5.  A large part of the nation experienced severely inclement weather during this week, which suggests that the initial jobless claims numbers of the past week did not capture the entire count.  Next week's report should give a better read on initial jobless claims.  Continuing claims, which lag initial jobless claims by one week, dropped 47,000 to 3.888 million after a decline of 74,000 the prior week.

Initial Jobless Claims Decline, Assessment of Labor Market Little Changed / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims fell 42,000 during the week ended January 29 to 415,000, reversing nearly the entire 54,000 jump recorded in the prior week. The Labor Department has indicated that declines in initial jobless claims were from states who reported storm-related increases in the prior week. Inclement weather in several states this week suggests that additional backlogs due to bad weather are likely to distort readings once again. Continuing claims, which lag initial jobless claims by one week, fell 84,000 to 3.925 million. Claims filed under special programs, which lag initial jobless claims by two weeks, show a small drop for the week ended January 15 (4.55 million vs. 4.69 million for week ended January 8, see Chart 8).

How Fast Has the Jobless Rate Declined After Prior Recessions? / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 9.4% unemployment rate in December 2010, an elevated reading, is down from a high of 10.1% in October 2009. The recent cycle low for the unemployment rate was 4.4% in May 2007. Although each business cycle is different, it is still worthwhile to recall how fast the jobless rate has declined in the past 60 years after each recession.

The Global Economic Slump: Dramatic Job Losses in all Major Regions of the World / Economics / Unemployment

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProf David McNally writes: I have never accepted the postmodernist contention that contemporary capitalism is all about smoke and mirrors. The notion that ideology and illusion make the system go round strikes me as another mode of reductionism – this one based on culture rather than, say, economics. But it must be said that, at first blush, the mainstream business media certainly offers some sustenance for the smoke and mirrors thesis.

Britain's Jobless Economic Recovery as UK Unemployment Hits 2.5 million / Economics / Unemployment

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe latest UK unemployment data caught the mainstream press and academic economists by surprise by showing a rise of 35k to 2.5 million (7.9%) for the three months to September 2010. UK unemployment is particularly hitting young people hard which risks creating a lost generation of increasingly angry youth (19.8% unemployed), as well as 1/2 million jobs expected to be cut from the public sector over the next 2 years, many of whom will find it difficult to adapt to the private sector jobs market.

U.S. Jobs Off Shoring Tsunami Quantitative Easing 3, a Perfect Stagflation Storm / Economics / Unemployment

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst most of the recent economic data seem to demonstrate a steady, albeit slow recovery in the United States, the November employment figures from the Labor Dept. threw a curve ball into the mix as the unemployment rate unexpectedly jumped to 9.8% from 9.6% held since August.

That brought the jobless rate to its 19th straight month of 9% or more, which is the longest stretch since World War II, while the unemployment rate of people with a college degree (25 and older) also hit a 40-year high of 5.1%.

More Economic Stimulus Means Fewer U.S. Jobs / Economics / Unemployment

By: Peter_Schiff

Today's payroll report severely disappointed on the downside and left economists scratching their heads to explain the weakness. The explanation, however, is plain as day. As I have been saying for years, the US economy will not create jobs as long as the Fed keeps interest rates artificially low, and Congress keeps stimulating spending and consumer debt, punishing employers with mandates, regulations, and taxes, crowding out private investment with massive government borrowing, and preventing market forces from restructuring our out-of-balance economy.

U.S. Labor Market Musings Prior to the November Employment Report / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLabor market indicators are sending a mixed message.  Today's jobless claims report continues to suggest that the economic recovery is not sufficiently strong to bring about a meaningful reduction in the number of jobless claims.  Initial jobless claims rose 26,000 to 436,000 during the week ended November 27.

U.S. Initial Jobless Claims Decline / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims fell 34,000 to 407,000 during the week ended November 20.  This is the lowest count of initial jobless claims since July 19, 2008.  The four-week moving average, at 436,000, is noticeably below 450,000, which has been the level around which initial jobless claims have been holding since April.  Continuing claims, which lag initial claims by one week, fell 142,000 to 4.182 million.  Unemployment insurance claims under special programs also dropped 262,000 for the week ended November 6 (see Chart 7).  The decline in initial jobless claims suggests that labor market conditions are improving
