Janet Yellen Is An Insult To Americans

Dorothea Lange Siler City, North Carolina Jul 1939

If you’re a girl and you’re old and you’re grey and you’re the size of a hobbit, who’s going to get angry at you? If your predecessor had all the qualities anyone could look for in a garden gnome, and his predecessor was known mainly as a forward drooling incoherent oracle, how bad could it get? Think they select Fed heads them on purpose for how well they would fit into the Shire?

Janet Yellen has a serious problem: the story no longer fits. The Fed under Bernanke said in its forward guidance that it would taper if certain job market conditions were met. And now they have been, at least on paper, but Yellen knows only too well that those are not the real numbers [ZH: as we explicitly warned would happen in December 2012].

She’s acutely aware of how the BLS calculates US unemployment numbers. She knows about all the millions of people who are not counted as being in the labor force anymore, all the millions who are forced to work part time jobs, all those working more than one job just to make ends meet, and all of the above who simply don’t bring home enough money at the end of the month to pay the bills.

She knows it all, but she has to go by the official numbers, lest the US government looks like a bunch of manipulative inglourious lying bastards. So this afternoon she once again went off into that staple most boring and elaborate speech this side of your least favorite librarian. It’s a routine job for Janet.

But imagine, or maybe you don’t have to because you actively experience it on a daily basis, that you’re unemployed or you’re working 3 jobs or you’re simply just scraping by and still always falling behind, you got credit card debt, maybe a looming foreclosure. And then Janet Yellen speaks, at Jackson Hole, an event you will certainly never be invited to, but she talks about the policies she and her minions decide on that will greatly influence your life too.

How about this fine paragraph courtesy of her spin writers:

… wage developments reflect not only cyclical but also secular trends that have likely affected the evolution of labor’s share of income in recent years. As I noted, real wages have been rising less rapidly than productivity, implying that real unit labor costs have been declining, a pattern suggesting that there is scope for nominal wages to accelerate from their recent pace without creating meaningful inflationary pressure. However, research suggests that the decline in real unit labor costs may partly reflect secular factors that predate the recession, including changing patterns of production and international trade, as well as measurement issues. If so, productivity growth could continue to outpace real wage gains even when the economy is again operating at its potential.

If you’re an unemployed American, like millions of your fellow country(wo)men, what are you supposed to think about that, or do with it? If you’re busting your behind just to feed your kids, and perhaps provide a decent education for them, so they don’t end up in the streets in some gang or drug operation, what do those words mean?

Janet Yellen is not talking to you. But she IS talking about you. Just in a language you don’t understand. And that you’re not supposed to understand. Or she would choose to use different words. Yellen and her fellow ” the ring is mine” chasers won’t invite you to their meetings, and they won’t talk in a language that relates to you. They will, however, make decisions that affect your life, and often to a great extent.

What Yellen said in her speech today is that while she’s bound to go by the official numbers, she knows very well those numbers have very little to do with the reality Americans experience in their lives.

Which is why she says things like:

More jobs have now been created in the recovery than were lost in the downturn

And follows up with:

... it speaks to the depth of the damage that, five years after the end of the recession, the labor market has yet to fully recover.

More jobs created than lost, but the job market hasn’t recovered. Go figure. Yellen could tell the BLS to redo their numbers, but instead says “the labor market has yet to fully recover”, which is a polite way of saying it’s a mess out there (always note the choice of words). More Yellen:

I would like to provide some context concerning the role of the labor market in shaping monetary policy over the past several years. During that time, the FOMC has maintained a highly accommodative monetary policy in pursuit of its congressionally mandated goals of maximum employment and stable prices.

This in nonsense, and she knows it very well. The Fed’s ‘highly accommodative monetary policy’ was never aimed at the job market, and even if it were, it failed so badly, once you count part time and poorly paid and not in the labor force, that it should have been abandoned. Instead, the policy was – always – aimed at keeping banks standing up, zombified as they are, at the cost of the people scrambling for their share of the jobs market, and their children too.

As the recovery progresses, assessments of the degree of remaining slack in the labor market need to become more nuanced because of considerable uncertainty about the level of employment consistent with the Federal Reserve’s dual mandate

How empty can a speech be? What does this have to do with Americans who only seek to feed their kids? How is this not mere gobbledy gook designed to put the unemployed to sleep while their few remaining future resources are being looted?

As an accounting matter, the drop in the participation rate since 2008 can be attributed to increases in four factors: retirement, disability, school enrollment, and other reasons, including worker discouragement. Of these, greater worker discouragement is most directly the result of a weak labor market, so we could reasonably expect further increases in labor demand to pull a sizable share of discouraged workers back into the workforce.


Indeed, the flattening out of the labor force participation rate since late last year could partly reflect discouraged workers rejoining the labor force in response to the significant improvements that we have seen in labor market conditions. If so, the cyclical shortfall in labor force participation may have diminished.

I’m going to leave it at this as far as quotes are concerned. I’m bad at never ending empty. And that’s all Yellen has to offer.

Janet Yellen was brought up with the idea of economic cycles. The short term ones. She doesn’t look like a huge 70 year Kondratieff cycle afficionado.

The scary thing about these people is that they seem to believe in what they say. Which is based on some hodgepodge stew of Keynes and Milton Friedman, not exactly people with proven track records outside of college class rooms.

But wouldn’t you know, while Janet did her show and tell, the international financial press is overflowing with experts and analysts who insist Europe’s state is so bad that trillions of euros in not even yet existent taxpayer money must be thrown at whatever the problem is Europe have got.

The only counter voice is Germany, but Germany landed a negative GDP number. So the pressure on Draghi continues. From all the people who claim that QE has been such a great success in the US and UK. Which sounds cute as long as you don’t count all the debt added to get to what US and UK seem to be at now. Without adding that debt.

London and Washington look good for now, but then so does China, which has launched more debt into the new global stratosphere than anyone else. Will that end well? How about Japan, which has QE’d itself into a trough we will only see the true despair of as we go forward? How good do they make US and UK look? Beyond next week?

All these people who sing the praises of QE, and who say Europe should pour in a trillion or two, they live in their rear-view mirrors. Thay want to go back to what once was, and at all costs. But how realistic is that? And moreover, how wise is it? Do we really want to return, even if it were possible, to, let’s say, the situation of 10 years ago?

It may be tempting when you look at certain sets of numbers, like GDP growth and housing markets, but once you realize all that was achieved only through a huge accumulation of additional debt, is it still all that attractive? And do we really want to risk adding more debt, before the old piles are paid off or restructured, just to return there?

Europe’s problem is the entire western world’s problem: people don’t spend nearly enough to keep the economy growing. And it’s not as if nothing has been done to lure them into more spending. The thing is, you won’t get there by making them borrow. People will spend more only when they have more. But rapidly increasing numbers of them have precious little. And if they don’t spend, you’re not going to get more of the so-called inflation (which is defined as rising prices).

It’s a dead end street, the whole thing. There’s only one school left in economics, and it was never a serious field to start with, let alone a science. But the nincompoops who emanate from the various schools and universities end up having an enormous influence on government and central bank policies, all at the cost of you and me. All they have is theories about how things should go, but nothing for when they don’t.

Central banks exist to protect banks, and the banking system as a whole, from danger. They pretend that they protect the larger economy, and the people on Main Street, but that’s just a convenient little story. Enhanced by the idea that what is good for banks is also good for you. Which is absolute baloney, but it works like a charm.

More often than not, banks’ interests are 180º opposites of Main Street, they certainly demonstrably have been since 2007. But then, how would you ever know? The Fed and Wall Street and Washington and all the media that are supposed to inform you but in reality promote only their propaganda, have got an iron grip on how the picture is painted.

So what if the banks themselves are the danger, and not the real economy? Well, then you’re out of luck, because the first thing on the agenda is always to save the banks, no matter what its costs Main Street or the children of Main Street.

And that’s why Janet Yellen holds stupid and insulting speeches like the one today. To tell you that she knows, but she just doesn’t care.

Methinks you are jumping to conclusions too quickly about who is bashing whom and who the trolls are.  George Washington's article on this site The Secret Playbook of Internet Trolls offers some insight into troll-duggery.

Specifically, Common Dreams outted an "Anti-Semetic" hate monger that turned out to be a Jewish Harvard grad student using multiple online identities to sew discord and discredit the site. The article references an earlier AP report that Israel pays university students to patrol and post in online forums.  

Given its popularity and content, ZH is no doubt infested w some of these troll-mongers.  Is there a disinfectant?  or just ignore them ...

@Divided State: "Yup...and guess what, most of them are all Jewish. Big effin surprise."

In principle most people have probable have NO issue with people from any ethnic group being in a position of power or influence -- this is America, right!?

But when a group that represents 2% of the US population is so overwhelmingly over-represented in positions of power & influence (banking, finance, corporations, media, academia, government), then you know that "something is up".  You know that they are working in concert and helping each other whenever possible, rather than being "fair and egalitarian" (as they want the rest of the populace to be). 

This goes way beyond "cooperating".  This is blatant collusion, if not worse.  And yet -- and I hate to harp on this, but feel that I must until the message sinks in -- and yet the dumb-ass whites, dumb-ass 'Christians' are even more culpable, as they have allowed this Takeover to happen:  They have willingly abdicated power and responsibility toward their own kin, clan and race.

While the dismay might be with the Usurpers, the disgust and contempt must be toward the UsurpedNothing will get fixed till the Usurped get their act/shit together.  And that won't/can't happen until they come up with a new religious paradigm (Lamb Jesus becomes Warrior Jesus), and a new worldview (based on Reciprocity & Quid Pro Quo) is created, where "racial loyalty" includes all people, and is fine for everyone -- even [gasp] White people.

Sloth is the sin being pushed as cool these days.  Many "thugs" (black/white) wear their ignorance like a badge of honor. Then they grow up and we pay for them either through welfare or jail.  The lesson here is parents must discipline their children and teach self responsibility.  If you don't you wind up with men children that think being a criminal is manly.

Hard for me to reason how the Christians have "allowed this takeover to happen". I have been on the front lines and do know for fact it's the Christians that are helping the most with the destruction these policies have had. Go to any community in the USA and you will find Christian churches and non-profits with food pantries being run by Christian volunteers. Bar none the largest group helping those that really need it.

There is some arrogance to what you say. I don't believe it is all laziness. I am training a 31 year old new hire. She and her husband had been looking for years to get a job and were living with her parents in Bakersfield. They relocated in San Diego but he is still looking. She told me they can just survive on her income in a small appartment which is twice my mortgage. Her family is sad because they wanted to help them raise kids but she admitted they simply couldn't afford to have them. I had my second child at her age and though it was hard, my husband and I could pay our bills, lived in a house and didn't need help from our families.

I realize the world is radically different for this age group now and I am inclined to refrain from judgement.

Indeed.  A private banking cartel, concerned only with concentrating more wealth and power into the hands of the "financiers" (and I'm not referring to the Nigerians that send out spam.)

Yellen, Bernanke, Greenspan -- all see things from their limited perspective.  It is clear they either are sheltered from the real economy and real people trying to get by, or they don't care.   But in any case, banking is their name, and banking is the game, and banks and bankers are who they care about most of all.

In the end, the Fed rules the roost for now.  Things will have to get much worse before lots and lots of people wake up and rise up.  I don't see that happening for a very long time.  Welfare and entitlements will expand to keep the masses tamed.  The main stream media will continue to be the voice of those in power: the financial elite and the politicians & police they purchase.  But I think the biggest drag on change ("revolution") has been, and continues to be, the dumbing down of our populace.

Or "freed slaves" like Republican Abe Lincoln, who did no such thing except abandon the Constitution.  Then you're OK, too.  Oh, and I left out the wonderfully loving females who've had abortions or killed their children.  That's funny, too.  And news items about lesbian and gay marriages referred to as families, with deference to the great environment for raising children, because it's all for the children.  And super dooper if you're a vociferously vocal Progressive comedian.  And Nazi asphyxiation chamber sitcoms are starting to make a big comeback.

speaking of the dumb WASP man:

from a GREAT LINK someone posted yesterday

This is quite long but a seminal paper - really hard hitting on how da tribe rules the roost.

The author, Unz, destroys many myths about the trbe in this. At least skim it.

The excuse many have for poor performance - that the tribe members simply got a brain size advantage - is blown away here. Suprising data and I have read a lot on the topic.


This conclusion is supported by the General Social Survey (GSS), an online dataset of tens of thousands of American survey responses from the last forty years which includes the Wordsum vocabulary test, a very useful IQ proxy correlating at 0.71. Converted into the corresponding IQ scores, the Wordsum-IQ of Jews is indeed quite high at 109. But Americans of English, Welsh, Scottish, Swedish, and Catholic Irish ancestry also have fairly high mean IQs of 104 or above, and their combined populations outnumber Jews by almost 15-to-1, implying that they would totally dominate the upper reaches of the white American ability distribution, even if we excluded the remaining two-thirds of all American whites, many of whose IQs are also fairly high. Furthermore, all these groups are far less highly urbanized or affluent than Jews,67 probably indicating that their scores are still artificially depressed to some extent. We should also remember that Jewish intellectual performance tends to be quite skewed, being exceptionally strong in the verbal subcomponent, much lower in math, and completely mediocre in visuospatial ability; thus, a completely verbal-oriented test such as Wordsum would actually tend to exaggerate Jewish IQ.

Stratifying the white American population along religious lines produces similar conclusions. An analysis of the data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth found that Americans raised in the Episcopal Church actually exceeded Jews in mean IQ, while several other religious categories came quite close, leading to the result that the overwhelming majority of America’s high-ability white population had a non-Jewish background.68

Thank you! It's comments like that which make my daily lurking on Zerohedge that much more so enjoyable. As a Jew, I get a huge surge of ego and pride when people like you insist that someone like I have this unbelievably dispraportionate level of power. See it makes me feel like a God amongst sheep. A true Ubermench. Although, it does make me feel a little bad that you have such a horrendously negative opinion about the anglo-saxon race in the US being so wholly inept and inferior that they'd let a tiny little group dominate so much of their lives. I tend to have a much higher opinion of Anglo Saxons than you do, but hey, to each is own right.

But in all seriousness, I wish I had a fraction of the power people think Jews have. I may have avoided losing my home to foreclosure by a shitty bank (run by a Protestant mind you), maybe even had a decently paying job (if it wasn't for the mostly Protestant politicians out there fucking up the job market). 


But to answer you how the tribe is in all these positions. Look into the history of Hollywood. T he "Tribe" built Hollywood. And all those great movies that have influenced your life, made you laugh and cry, you can thank the Tribe for that. As far as CEOs, the Tribe  has some of the highest number of people opening up their own businesses amongst minority groups, that creates larger pockets of capital. Same with Doctors. A good chunk of Western medicine is thanks to the Tribe. And of course like any community that cares, one member of the community helps the other. Which more Europeans would get with that notion.

What would their reactions be to it? What would Jefferson say about the situation this country has found itself in? If they knew then what we know now what would they do differently with our founding documents and the foundations of our laws and financial systems? If only I could bring Richard Nixon and Woodrow Wilson to a small room and have them watch that speech and then send them back, what would they do differently? (besides Nixon and his whole watergame fiasco, I'm sure he would have changed things so he never got caught fo sho). Anyway it just is astounding to me the solutions we could have with time travel.

Thats right, hard to believe Milton would advise for that. Living in the now is no way to be as the concept of going fiat should surely give some intellectual fodder for the outcome debate. Gives rise to the 'debt doesn't matter' notion, which leads to juggling and testing the limits. We not only tested them, but have crossed over to the inevitable downgrade and ultimately, crazy inflation, ie erosion of buying power. Not saying hyperinflation, but inflation is higher than Yellen is spouting and using as her metric now. She is waiting for painful, blatant inflation to raise rates, oh and more part time low wage job growth. <head shake>

Surely Miltion knew that dollar power erosion would put a time limit on it. Its a no brainer!

that's nothing, Jack!  look at Treasury, or Commerce, or the IRS, or council of econ advisors, or cftc, cbo, sec, omb, fdic and on and on in recent years.

Consider - if you will, that the 5 biggest professional sports in America, football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer all have commissioners - they are Jews in all but football. 2 in a row for the NBA, and probably will be two in a row after the, I gotta say, pretty decent Bud Selig retires.


As for Hollywood - remember, some truths are "anti-Semitic" - because the first rule of Tribe Club is you do not talk about Tribal Power.


I love how the argument is becoming "so what if we do"  - so what if Hollywood is not only controlled by an ethnocentri cminority of 3% - but has been kept that way by them for 70 years.  Meanwhile, Jews are all about supporting diversity and affirmative action, and would never, ever allow some argument like "So what if the French want France to stay ethnically French"




All of this shit - its funny - what is true is obvious, and you can[t say it.  You can post the most insane things about the world's 1.3 billion Muzzies, or the indigenous people of Palestine and never fear being blocked or banned.  Meanwhile, one wonders what comments about Israeli war crimes or Zionist power never makes it into the NYT comments.


By the way - "friends" of we America Firsters are trying to get people to comment more at the NY Times, I believe, considering who and how many actually read them.
