Good for business

Jun 06, 2014

From the Wall Street Journal, Live from New York! It’s Jobs Friday! Steven Russolillo there said, “Jobs report is ‘much more in tune with the equity market’s lofty perch than the bond market recent strength.’” Tom Lauricella from Dow Jones Newswires tweeted this quote from the story: “Jobs report shows a U.S. economy "that is on the messy side of sluggish." News Breaker pointed out, “FACT: This is 1st time economy has added at least 200k jobs a month for 4 straight mos since 1999.”

The New York Times’ Neil Irwin reported: Good News on Jobs. Why Aren’t We Happier? Michael Cooper there called it “A big, under-discussed reason many arts orgs are struggling: It's the economy, stupid.” The Guardian’s Heidi Moore added, “Smart piece by @Neil_Irwin on this ‘pre-crisis-level jobs’ mishegas. Population growth, people!”

In response, Business Insider’s Joe Weisenthal wrote The Scariest Chart Ever Is Dead. Matthew Gannon with CNN said, “We've now recovered all of the jobs lost during the recession.” While Mark Gongloff from Huffington Post called it “End of an era.”
