NFP Prints At 227K On Expectations Of 210,000, Unemployment Rate At 8.3% Boosted By Temp Jobs

Tyler Durden's picture


NFP 227,000 on expectations of 210,000; Previous revised from 243K to 284K; Unemployment Rate (U-3%) at 8.3%, U-6 at 14.9%. While for the first time in a long time those not in the labor force declined (from 87,874 to 87,564) and the participation rate rose as a result from 63.7% to 63.9%, here is what the market is focusing on currently: "Professional and business services added 82,000 jobs in February. Just over half of the increase occurred in temporary help services (+45,000)." Also, that Birth Death added 91K is also taking away from the lustre of the headline which is diamtetrically opposite of what Gallup found yesterday. The market reaction is one indicative of the realization that QE3 may have been delayed once again, and this time substantially.

Average duration of unemployment steady at 40.0 weeks, via John Lohman:

But temporary workers rose the most in over 2 years and near the highest rise on record...

BOOM! Libertarians get PWNED yet again. Oh man, this must be so embarrassing for doomer goldbugs and off-the-gridders. The global recovery is accelerating at an incredible pace! This bodes very well indeed for the Obama 2012 campaign.

Yep you're right MBD. Yesterday we saw that people were taking on debt again so the debt markets are working again. Greece has been fixed so it's all good there. And now the job machine is back in gear. Obama's reelection is now in the bag. People can go back to work as debt serfs and pretend that life is good. Business as usual. Next up bombing some brown people for your television entertainment.

American wealth rose 2.1%, roughly $1 trillion because of the stock market rise.  But how much did it cost future generations?  Where is the sense in spending $3 trillion to produce $1 trillion?  It is a most inefficient means of generating wealth.  When inflation starts to eat away at that gain, as it must, and interest rates rise, as they must, then that wealth will vanish but the debt will not go away.  

How is the global recovery accelerating?  China is slowing down.  Europe is slipping into recession.  How can the US avoid falling back into recession?  Then what will happen?

 The NFP number speaks for itself. We are entering a new era of growth and prosperity specifically because of the actions of our Federal Reserve and congress. This has now been confirmed beyond any reasonable doubt. So my advice to you and other doomers is this:

Cheer up, sell the bunkers, the bullion and the canned hams, and be part of the solution not the problem.

I believe when you say Libertarians you actually mean Austrians. 

The Austrians have been saying for months that the current currency injections would make things look better for awhile. It is an election year.
Meanwhile Krugman the Keynsian has been calling for even more money injections because of the bad economy.

why would a "libertarian" be any more anything than a librarian, rotarian, or sumerian?  or a catholic?

what would a doomer or a person off the grid care about some data dipped in fudge?

you are just capable of reactive thought, and your reactions are severely atrophied, also

since you have never evinced any but a purely reactive and incomplete thought here, you obviously don't belong here

you're wasting your own time, which nobody could care less about, i'm pretty sure

but you're taking a toll on the site w/ your constant string-jumping

how about a nice deathMatchTM w/ slewie if you don't start using the comment box at the bottom of the page?

"The global recovery is accelerating at an incredible pace" 

                               - Some bumbling idiot



ECB President Mario Draghi said on friday, March, 9 that Europe is trapped between accelerating inflation and slowing growth.

Barack Obama said on Friday, March 9, that he is more concerned about his NCAA brackets than the fact that the current labor participation rate is 63.9% and heading lower, while the average number of weeks for Americans on unemployment is 40 and trending higher.

Chinese Premier Wen said at the People's Conference during the week of March 5th in Beijing that China should expect lower future growth in its economy as it now moves away from a policy of global expansion.

Well, $5.5 Trillion in THIS country. Let's not forget the trillions spent stimulating the economies in Europe, Japan, and China. That spills over the borders too.

We are actually seeing a recovery. No doubt about it. We just had to borrow from the next two generations to get it.

Tiny heads up, Tyler.  The Gallup sampling for their report was not coincident with the sampling from BLS.  The unemployment report is sampled, as I recall, in just one particular week of a month, I think it's the third week.  Gallup's sample was not that same week?
