Comments on: Counterparties: America’s consistently dissatisfying jobs market http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2013/06/07/counterparties-americas-consistently-dissatisfying-jobs-market/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Spengler http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2013/06/07/counterparties-americas-consistently-dissatisfying-jobs-market/comment-page-1/#comment-47294 Sun, 09 Jun 2013 02:54:09 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=22023#comment-47294 The labor market is very not subpar. The BLS is flat wrong on the U-3. They are not counting full time temp jobs in the U-3. Notice the U-6 has begun to drop faster than the U-3. Hence the real U-3 rate is more likely 6.6-6.8%.

Luckily, the Federal Reserve has their own private internals and they are far better which they are seeing some overheating going on.

Or to think that “X will/should cause stock prices to go up” equates with “cheering for X”?
