Comments on: After six years, the US economy got its jobs back http://blogs.reuters.com/data-dive/2014/06/06/after-six-years-the-us-economy-got-its-jobs-back/ Mon, 23 Mar 2015 20:11:41 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Bmwmc http://blogs.reuters.com/data-dive/2014/06/06/after-six-years-the-us-economy-got-its-jobs-back/comment-page-1/#comment-80 Sun, 08 Jun 2014 14:34:32 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/data-dive/?p=1052#comment-80 That only cost 30 trillion more in global debt, 21 trillion in corporate debt, and 12 trillion in published and unpublished money printing. Just to name a few indicators but not all.

I wonder how much the next cycle of central bank boom and bust will cost and how large that arch will be?

Your headline creates the impression that it is mission accomplished. Since most will never read your comment after a quick look at the chart, your suggestion that there is still a lot to get done will be lost. This is a real shame.
What’s worse is that the data only describes a part of the reality. What’s hidden is the fact that no one knows how well do “new” jobs compare to “old” ones and how much more labor years will Babyboomers require before retirement. The answers to these issues will determine the amount of effort needed to restore the labor market. Unfortunately, I am not convinced a single economist has a handle of such answers. When economists suggest that participation is lower due to retiring boomers, yet data shows that it is the twenty year olds who are not participating; it is evident that something is amiss.
In my opinion, Boomers are broke. Before retiring, they will need to continue to earn an income for many more years. As a result, they are taking anything they can since good jobs requiring experience are MIA. By taking low quality part time jobs, they are in effect pushing young workers out of job opportunities.
If my thesis is true, then the nice chart shown above is totally misplaced; as it does not depict the dire position of both Boomers and twenty-somethings.
