Just remember when Bear Stearns collapsed he said on Bubblevision that we weren't in a recession nor heading towards one.

3 months after it had already started....

I thought all the numbers were fixed, so why does anyone try to predict them or even print them as news?

Few people know that Lavorgna began his career at FRBNY where he honed his skills as an analyst in their Projections department.

Exactly FEDbuster,

Joe is eminently qualified for a top Treasury or FED position.

An abject shill/puppet who is wrong almost every time.

Perfect government/FED hire for Obama. Another idiot who believes that massive government and taxation is the answer to the problem caused by massive government and taxation.

How do you have the absolutely worst forecasting record in the history of Wall Street and still keep your job? How do you do it?

It's called wall street socialism. A race to the bottom for talent.

I'm laughing today, too.

But that old momo monkey won't let it go. He said something about trying to pry it from his cold dead fingers. 

Say it ain't so Shoeless "Joe LaVorgna" Jackson deserves a 47 ounce hickory bat like Babe Ruth used.

It's not Joe's fault really. It's the U.S. Government's fault for not lying harder. Perhaps there is a Chinese division Joe can go work for, forecasting government payrolls over there. Or perhaps the Chinese government can just hire him. He likes big numbers, so does China. They were meant for each other.

$5 says he ends up working for the US Government.  Again, if new weekly UE claims have been averaging 400K+, doesn't that mean that we've been losing 1.6M jobs a month for months on end now??

Lavorgna's bonus should be put into his personal PA, which he would be forced to trade based on his recommendations.

Are you trying to get poor Joe fired?

If so, hope you know that talent like Joe's is always sought by the White House.

Unintended consequences anyone?
