Court kills Missouri law cutting jobless aid 27.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Jefferson City, Mo. • The Missouri Supreme Court struck down a law Tuesday that had cut the duration of the state’s unemployment benefits to one of the shortest periods nationally, meaning thousands of residents could get a longer financial lifeline as they look for work. Since January, jobless workers have been limited to 13 weeks of benefits as a result of a measure that links the duration to Missouri’s statewide unemployment rate, providing less aid when fewer people are searching for work. I... <iframe src="" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

It's still the economy, stupid—and that's a major plus for Hillary 25.7.2016 Daily Kos
Mercifully, Donald Trump is done with his convention, and what a shambletastic trainwreck it was. Now it’s Hillary Clinton’s turn. For all the other important themes on which this campaign will turn, the one that will likely be decisive for the largest number of Americans is the same one it always is: the economy. In addition to becoming the first female president of our country, Hillary Clinton is aiming to be the first Democrat in almost 70 years—since Harry Truman in 1948—to win the White House for her party beyond two consecutive terms. When the economy has crashed as in 2008 or 1932—both of which took place after long periods of conservatives controlling the White House and Congress—it’s essentially impossible to do so. The incumbent party is simply disqualified, whoever the nominee. The bums get thrown out. When things are going well overall, as in 1988 or 2000, you’ve got a fighting chance. Without Barack Obama’s strong economic record, Hillary Clinton would have as much chance of winning the ...

Do jobs numbers indicate the strength of California's economy? Not really 21.7.2016 LA Times: Business

On Friday, California will release its monthly jobs report, which will say something about the health of the state’s economy. What it’s saying, exactly, may not be clear.

Every time the state releases jobs numbers, reporters (including this one) scramble to digest them and offer some context.

Rampell: Wage increases bode well for Clinton 12.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
WASHINGTON • Still waiting for your elusive but much-deserved raise? At long last, it seems to be just around the corner. And that bodes well not just for millions of regular Americans, but also for the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. The U.S. economy gets a bad rap these days, despite the fact that it’s doing better than almost every other economy that went through a financial crisis in 2007-2008. With very low unemployment and historically low inflation, we’re in the midst of what...

Will: Is anemic growth the new normal? 10.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
ST. LOUIS • America’s economy has now slouched into the eighth year of a recovery that demonstrates how much we have defined recovery down. The idea that essentially zero interest rates are, after seven and a half years, stimulating the economy “strains credulity,” says James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. But last month he and other members of the Federal Reserve Board understandably felt constrained to vote unanimously to continue today’s rates for an economy that... <iframe src="" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

June hiring surge of 287,000 suggests rebounding U.S. economy 8.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Employers shook off two months of weak hiring by adding 287,000 jobs in June, a robust pace that suggests a resilient U.S. economy recovering from a slump early in the year. The broadly positive jobs report suggests that the U.S. economy was improving before the United Kingdom startled the world late last month by voting to leave the European Union. The “Brexit” vote roiled financial markets and raised fears that the global economy would slump and possibly even succumb to a recessio...
