The Unemployment Rate Does Not Fully Capture Labor Market Slack

(Labor Markets Blog, December 2018)

The unemployment rate may be overestimating current labor market tightness. An exercise on monthly employment changes shows that 63 percent of all newly employed people aged 25 to 54 in October 2018 were not actively looking for a job in the previous month. If employers are looking for slack in the labor market, they should find better ways to source and recruit the people who are not looking for work and allegedly not willing to work.

  • Is the Goldilocks economy over?

    (Labor Markets Blog, November 2018)

    Inflationary pressures will rise in the coming year even though we project the US economy to slow down in 2019. Rumors that the Philips Curve (low unemployment rate = faster inflation) is dead have been greatly exaggerated. A continuing tightening of the labor market and further demographic slowdown will result in higher producer prices and wages. The likelihood for above two percent inflation rate is higher in 2019 than at any other time in the past 25 years.
  • In the Shadow of Thanksgiving

    (Human Capital Blog, November 2018)

    As we think about Thanksgiving and being thankful for all that we have in our lives, what are you doing to engender a spirit of generosity among your coworkers?
