UE numbers look promising


Private Sector alone added 215,000 jobs. Couple that with all the Tax incentives retained by the Fiscal Cliff deal, and the 2013 may be the big rebound we need. Full UE number due out tomorrow.

Per NPR news

The median ue rate will likely be around 8% on the year, if not "hire."

That's the ADP number. The ADP number is not always indicative of the "official" BLS U3 number.



Furthermore, initial claims of 372k today was a miss on the expected number of 362k.

But hey, look on the bright side, as people are forced to come off the unemployment rolls and give up looking for work they no longer get counted and the U3 number will improve.

Is an improving U3 number indicative of an improving economy? No, not always. Participation rate, GDP and velocity combined tell a better picture of the economy than just the U3 number.

So what's the single best indicator, on a monthly basis, of economic improvement in this country? The Stock market? Walmart Sales/profits?

Food stamp usage, and UE benefits numbers will tell a whole lot about the truth.

I personally believe the participation rate is the most important number, because when people are trying to get jobs even if there low paying, it means they have faith in whats happening in the market place.

The other numbers are junk in my opinion!!

I'd start with asking the questions that UE requires:

1- Are you able and available to work?
2- Did you work?

If yes, unemployment rate goes down.

If no, unemployment rate goes up.

That question should be asked of all US inhabitants between the ages of 18 and 65.

Simple, solved.

The bottom line indicator is tax revenues to the treasury with all things being equal. That's the way business's view things. Increased revenue = good, decreased revenue = bad. If revenues decrease then policies need to be adjusted/changed. Note, increasing taxes does not always = increased revenue to the treasury. Policy makers need to find that Goldilocks policy where tax and regulatory policy maximize economic growth weighted against other factors such as defense, safety, environmental regulation, etc.

ETA: historical federal tax receipts. We are still below 2008 tax receipt levels. We had ~$2.525T in 2008 and "they" are estimating ~$2.47T for 2012. When adjusted for inflation we are even further behind the 2008 peak. It's going to take ~10 years to work our way out of the "Great Recession" (especially when inflation adjusted).

Problem with U3 UE is it doesn't count certain groups and over counts others. i.e., In May '09 the percentage of graduating college seniors unable to find work was the highest in US history -- higher than in the Great Depression.
Not one of those were counted in U3 numbers.

Likewise folks desperate for a paycheck who take parttime jobs or jobs well beneath paygrade disappear from U3. Counted in U6, not in U3.

Good U6 = Economic Improvement
