....or not The real title of the Gallup article is "Unemployment Numbers Suggest U.S. Economic Boom, or Not" "A careful look at the government's unadjusted household unemployment data shows a stunning 740,000 jobs added to the economy in February -- three times the 227,000 reported based on the establishment payroll survey. If this is economic reality, then the underlying economy must be growing much faster than most Americans currently believe. If the U.S. economy is surging, and jobs increased at the rate of three-quarters of a million last month, why haven't we heard a lot more about it? And, given a rapidly expanding economy, how can Gallup's nearly 30,000 random interviews with Americans across the nation show a significant increase in the unemployment rate?" Gallup.Com - The Behavioral Economy by Dennis Jacobe: Unemployment Numbers Suggest U.S. Economic Boom, or Not Nice to see a mainstream source belaboring our gov't (lies) reports on the unemployment trend data. No, this isn't because Reagan changed the way it's reported. It's about mathematically sound rationale. And to date, our gov't is not using sound rationale, they're "trying" to sway public thinking into believing something that is not true. Our economy did not add 740,000 jobs in February....that's lie #1.
