One more point on the jobs report before I stop perseverating on it. The number of jobs created was around 250,000. The number of people who were no longer counted as unemployed because they had stopped looking for work was 300,000. That means that if you hail the decrease in the unemployment rate from 7.8% to 7.7% you are objectively endorsing the increase in the number of discouraged workers as the solution to our problems. Discouraged workers were a more significant factor than more jobs.
