New Economic Figures: 'Non-End-of-the-World-Data-Flow'

Friday, November 05, 2010

The Fed yesterday called economic recovery "disappointingly slow," but there may be some optimistic news out today. Unemployment numbers released today place the unemployment rate holding steady at 9.6 percent, but nonfarm payrolls are up 151,000. Yahoo Finance economics editor and columnist Dan Gross deciphers the numbers for us, and tells us about what he calls "non-end-of-the-world-data-flow."

Again, it's good that you are at least paying some attention to the structural adjustments (both domestic and global) that the U.S. economy faces. As the TYPES of jobs, technology, and global competition picks up, that means a different economic formulation and not just "going back" to our old-style economy.
