When Will “Experts” Stop Expecting Positive Jobs Numbers?
It seems that every week, we are confronted with rampant spin by desperate reporters and White House surrogates (as if there’s a distinction between the two) telling us unemployment claims rose “unexpectedly” or the number of new jobs did not meet “expectations.”
I’m no financial expert, as a perfunctory review of my bank statement would attest, but I know better than to expect positive employment numbers from an administration doing everything in its power to prevent such trends.
Anyone actually surprised at the consistently-elevated unemployment rate has no business delivering economic news.
