    Re: Economic News/Discussion

    This is absolutely amazing.

    Back when Obama was selling the Great Stimulus Plan to taxpayers it was all about employment numbers and creating "Shovel Ready Jobs'.

    And now, the numbers are meaningless. That b!tch is insane.

    ^^^ I like the C&P Captain Butthurt has quoted on it - something to the effect of it's not sustainable, so by the time elections arrive it will be diminished and hurt the GOP.....

    Full Spin Job.

    Pathetic.

    Economy has been so good since the lefts messiah departure...


    MAGAnomic September Jobs Report: 134,000 Added, and a Massive Upward Revision +87,000 Equals 3.7% Unemployment Rate




    The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) release the first estimated September jobs report earlier today [Details Here] reflecting 134,000 new jobs added last month. However, that’s not the story – The BLS revised August upward +69,000, and July +18,000.The cumulative jobs gained 134k + 87k equals 221,000 new jobs. Lowering the unemployment rate to 3.7% the lowest unemployment statistic since 1969.


    First, a note on the *revisions*. How did the BLS underestimate (twice) the August jobs report by 70k ? This is stunning: 201k -vs- 270k. That’s a 30% error rate? Someone’s head needs to roll, because it looks like politically motivated statistical sandbagging.

    BLS – […] The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for July was revised up from +147,000 to +165,000, and the change for August was revised up from +201,000 to +270,000. With these revisions, employment gains in July and August combined were 87,000 more than previously reported. After revisions, job gains have averaged 190,000 per month over the last 3 months.


    (BLS) Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 134,000 in September, compared with an average monthly gain of 201,000 over the prior 12 months. In September, job gains occurred in professional and business services, in health care, and in transportation and warehousing. (See table B-1.)
    Employment in professional and business services increased by 54,000 in September and has risen by 560,000 over the year.

    Health care employment rose by 26,000 in September. Hospitals added 12,000 jobs, and employment in ambulatory health care services continued to trend up (+10,000). Over the year, health care employment has increased by 302,000.

    In September, employment in transportation and warehousing rose by 24,000. Job gains occurred in warehousing and storage (+8,000) and in couriers and messengers (+5,000). Over the year, employment in transportation and warehousing has increased by 174,000.

    Construction employment continued to trend up in September (+23,000). The industry has added 315,000 jobs over the past 12 months.

    Employment in manufacturing continued to trend up in September (+18,000), reflecting a gain in durable goods industries. Over the year, manufacturing has added 278,000 jobs, with about four-fifths of the gain in the durable goods component.

    Within mining, employment in support activities for mining rose by 6,000 over the month and by 53,000 over the year.

    Employment in leisure and hospitality was little changed over the month (-17,000). Prior to September, employment in the industry had been on a modest upward trend. Some of the weakness in this industry in September may reflect the impact of Hurricane Florence. (read more)

    ^^^ You gotta keep in mind the tax cuts are meaningless and only benefit "the rich and corporations" and their stance is understandable.

    ROFL!!!

    As if it's a question.

    Question For Midterm Voters: Are You Better Off Than You Were Two Years Ago?


    . . .
    Why Are You Better Off?

    The turnaround under Trump was not only unexpected, but deemed impossible by Democrats, who were trying to convince the public that 2% growth was the best this country could do.

    Yet despite the improvements, there's no guarantee this growth will continue, especially if Democrats win control of Congress and are able to thwart Trump's pro-growth economic policies going forward.

    There are already some signs of weakness, such as the data from outplacement firm Challenger Gray and Christmas showing a spike in the number of job cuts announced last month.

    Democrats want the midterm elections to be a referendum on President Trump.
    We hope it is.

    Because if voters are honest with themselves, they'll realize that Trump and the GOP are delivering for the country, just as they promised.

    Cuomo admits living under liberal governance is an expensive proposition when describing what it cost to lure Amazon to his lovely state.
    New York’s incentive package is much larger than Virginia’s. Amazon promised to create about 25,000 jobs at each location, but New York offered twice as much as Virginia did.



    Gov. Andrew Cuomo defended the deal, arguing that New York has to offer incentives because of its comparatively high taxes. At 6.5 percent, New York’s corporate income-tax rate is only modestly higher than Virginia’s 6 percent, according to the Tax Foundation. But other business and individual taxes are higher in New York.

    “It’s not a level playing field to begin with,” Mr. Cuomo said in an interview Tuesday. “All things being equal, if we do nothing, they’re going to Texas.”
    $2.5 billion of incentives for 25,000 jobs = $1,000,000. per employee. Dang.

    Bu bu bu But...Working for Amazon they never make even close to a million in a lifetime. The taxpayers certainly won’t break even on the taxes they pay and the benefits they receive... The market for fools gold died during the 1800s...

    Now thatís a good one - our pinheads in government controlling big finance - the first thing theyíd have to do is understand it - not even the geniuses in charge of running it understand it - some pinhead politician is hopelessly lost.

    The fact that she even suggests they could control it is testimony to her stupidity...

    Waiting on the Sphincter Brothers report on this one - should be entertaining.
