More Bogus Numbers From Powerline
In his second paragraph, Kos refers to “the jobless recovery” of the Bush years. That’s the jobless recovery that has produced roughly 200,000 new jobs per month for at least a year and a half, except during the immediate aftermath of Katrina.
Also, I’m not sure where
Hinderaker Mirengoff is getting that 200,000 number. Taking the last 18 months of data I get about 165,000 jobs/month (this is for Nov. 2004 through April 2006–and taking Oct 2004 through March 2006 gives us 176,000). That is quite a rounding error.
