Unexpectedly, Economy Rebounds to Produce More Jobs In Any Month Since 1939 -- and Perhaps In All of American History

A week ago, Politico reported the thing that Democrats fear, dread, and hate more than anything else in the world -- the grim possibility that America might succeed and enjoy prosperity again.

In early April, Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration and now a professor at Harvard, was speaking via Zoom to a large bipartisan group of top officials from both parties. The economy had just been shut down, unemployment was spiking and some policymakers were predicting an era worse than the Great Depression. The economic carnage seemed likely to doom President Donald Trumpís chances at reelection.

Furman, tapped to give the opening presentation, looked into his screen of poorly lit boxes of frightened wonks and made a startling claim.

"We are about to see the best economic data we've seen in the history of this country," he said.

The former Cabinet secretaries and Federal Reserve chairs in the Zoom boxes were confused, though some of the Republicans may have been newly relieved and some of the Democrats suddenly concerned.

"Everyone looked puzzled and thought I had misspoken," Furman said in an interview. Instead of forecasting a prolonged Depression-level economic catastrophe, Furman laid out a detailed case for why the months preceding the November election could offer Trump the chance to brag -- truthfully -- about the most explosive monthly employment numbers and gross domestic product growth ever.

...

Furman's counterintuitive pitch has caused some Democrats, especially Obama alumni, around Washington to panic. "This is my big worry," said a former Obama White House official who is still close to the former president. Asked about the level of concern among top party officials, he said, "It's high-- high, high, high, high."

Well, Democrats: Brace for some bad news.


RedState's Bonchie notes that the leftwing enemy-comms media has been salivating over the prospect of a cataclysmic May jobs report all week:

The New York Times and Politico were already warming up, putting out tweets predicting doom.

(Hit the link to see the Enemy of the People Tokyo Rose Times similarly masturbating itself over the prospect of further American suffering.)

Well, instead of skyrocking up to the Great Depression level of 20%, May instead saw the greatest one month increase in job creation since at least 1939 -- and possibly in all of history.


The huge burst of growth "defied" experts' (uh-huh) predictions of another 7.5 million jobs lost, and "shocked" economists.

Furman had warned Democrats about the Good News (bad news for them) coming, which is that this was not a normal recession, in which job losses are due to structural and inherent problems of the economy which must be worked out -- sometimes over years -- before full recovery can happen.

No, this current recession was like the brief recessions seen after a hurricane -- yes, for the duration of the storm and the aftermath, there is a sharp sudden drop in economic activity.

But then, because the economy is fundamentally good except for that temporary setback, the economy rebounds. This is the V-shape recovery Trump (and others) have predicted -- yes, it's a sharp drop down, but then it's a sharp zoom back upwards afterwards.

Matt Whitlock dryly notes that the Washington Post's twitter feed is "like a rollercoaster" as they prayed for American disaster and were crushed to witness American success.



Trump was dignified and restrained in his gloating and mockery of the left's doomsayers.


CNBC reported that the May gain of 2.5 million jobs "was by far the biggest one-month jobs gain in U.S. history since at least 1939."

"THESE NUMBERS ARE INCREDIBLE!" President Donald Trump tweeted.

...

"Barring a second surge of Covid-19, the overall U.S. economy may have turned a corner, as evidenced by the surprise job gains today, even though it still remains to be seen exactly what the new normal will look like," Tony Bedikian, head of global markets at Citizens Bank, told Fox Business...

"It's a stupendous number. It's joyous, let's call it like it is. The Market was right. It's stunning!" Trump tweeted, tagging CNBC's Jim Cramer. It was unclear as to whether or not the president was quoting Cramer.

V for Victory, baby.

Paul Krugman was so butthurt, ass-mad, and sphincter-peeved by the Unexpectedly Great news that he begin sputtering out conspiracy theories that Trump faked the numbers, or forced people to fake the numbers.

Hey, remember when the establishment media (of both right and left varieties) used to use the smear "Conspiracy theory!" to shut down all speculations and reportage that harmed their narrative?

Boy, they sure seem to have embraced the power of conspiracy theories now.

OH-- MEANT TO SAY!

Nancy Pelosi has been threatening that she would block any phase 4 stimulus unless it included no-go items like billions for illegals, mass amnesty, and huge bailouts for her friends' dying states.

Her plan was to hold the country hostage: Unless her ransom demands were met, she'd crash the economy through the floor.

But with the economy now jolted back to life -- Krugman fears that Trump and the Republicans might decide that no Phase 4 is needed.

Leaving Nancy Pelosi with nothing but botox and tears and a ransom note written in whore-red lipstick.

They're waiting for the talking points. My prediction is one of:
- The numbers are bunk and Trump corrupted the BLS
- The jobs are all low-paying supermarket jobs/warehouse jobs/etc. that are themselves due to COVID, and transient so these will be given back in two months
- That the full scope of business failure due to the necessary COVID response isn't known yet and that the next three months will prove them right
- That this is only because of people taking lower-quality/lower-paying jobs to avoid losing unemployment benefits, and is a net negative to the people returning to work

If you look deep into the numbers the biggest growth engine, small businesses, are really coming back.

Other indicators- crude is moving back towards an all important $40 mark, which is right around the point where some producers start making a profit again. Expect to see things pickup as we move north of that mark.

The markets have also begun to look at more risky investments in the emerging markets. There was a lot of movement in that direction over the past few days. That's a sign people are looking forward to growth, not backwards.

This was always going to be the problem for Democrats on Trump refusing to impose national lockdowns.

142 There will be some real lasting damage, especially in the small business sector and of course in select sub-sectors (travel, hospitality) - but "lasting" as always depends on growth now, which should continue to be robust.

Another item on the "wall of worry" that a climbing market will be dealing with, I think - the war with Chi-Nah has now been escalated. Trump made a yuuuge change last week when he signaled no more compartmentalization - i.e. the trade struggle essentially separated from other points of conflict, like Hong Kong/human rights, Chinese elbow-throwing in their region, etc.

Fairly credible trial balloons last week in Chi-Nah about welshing on the commodity purchase that is the heart of Phase I trade deal.

No more "my friend Xi", and, even tougher language than "we're not happy" (Trump's standard phrase during the coronaviruspalooza).

I suspect this is a bump and we won't have one this big again. I could be wrong.

That said, I think the average might end up being ridiculously strong for the next year or two. Trump has been axing regulations like it's a mania since COVID shutdowns started coming into vogue. There hasn't been a lot of press about it, but the EOs and orders to his cabinet chiefs have been flowing and the amount of regulatory reform will probably help a ton over the next couple of years.

Trump knows how to take his foot off of the neck of an economy that *wants* to expand and get on track.

Obumbles never did.

I used to illustrate my proposal for Obama's economy by putting one foot in front of the other and then in an ostensible fashion, stepping back.

When I got the question "What was that?" or "What do mean?", I'd answer "Stepping off the neck of the economy".

This of course, drew jeers from liberals. Because they are already doing the best that can be done, simply by their being so great as people.

231 One other thing I noticed on my road trip from Pittsburgh to TX (and yes, it's "duh!"): low gas prices.

The fuel prices will offer reprieve to individuals and businesses. This will mean things suck for the oil firms for a little while, but even as things ramp up again, oil will be more in demand, and they will once again bring people aboard to pick up the slack. Yes, people will still be hurting out there, but based on this and other factors, do not be surprised if by Election Day the unemployment rate is well south of 10% and falling.

To keep the momentum up...there is only so much the federal government can do. It is up to us to elect business friendly local and state governments; governments that understand that expanding the tax base by bringing in businesses that hire people (whether in manufactures or in EVIL services) beats relentless raising taxes every single time.

(The Left wanting to defund cops amuses me to no end. They profess to hate cops but in order to get what they want they will NEED, they will REQUIRE a violent, adversarial police force that only exists to declare all-out war on the American people.)

247 I'm no expert on economics, although I did see "Trading Places". So I don't get how we're doing this well in light of all the shit that has happened the last few months.

Not that difficult. Most businesses buckled down for a couple months and are ramping production back up. Consumers are going back out and spending money. A lot of the job losses were in the service and hospitality industries, which are notorious for high fluctuations and high turnovers.

Basically the lockdown wasn't the end of the world which opponents screamed that it would be. Meanwhile, it may actually have done some good by clearing away businesses which were vulnerable, due to mismanagement/failure to prepare/overleveraging/etc.

Posted by: Colorado Alex In Exile at June 05, 2020 12:55 PM (SgjGX)

248 The "better than expected" game may well work ... even though 13% is a lot worse that 3%, it is better than 20%. Unprecedented QE of ? $5T+ is part of the play ... and it seems good that Trump magnificently pre-empted a late summer Market Crash by his enemies, with the early shutdown crash. (if that is what he did)

The virus is more widespread than a hurricane, as are the planned riots, and the forces behind it all. But whatever it takes, Trump must win in November, preferably with some Tea Party style replacements of the GOPe open borders nuts, and sure, let's win the House as well.


The China Virus has also exposed China as commies trying to destroy the West ...Trump Wins again, as the hero that has been exposing China from day one. Biden is on the take from China, and Ukraine.


I assume these UE numbers are real, but there are some real challenges ahead. "V-shaped recovery" is still a hope, with unemployment at 13% and trillions of stimulus being floated. imo managing expectations means promising steady improvement in jobs, not a miraculous move back to pre hurricane/virus numbers. Lots of economic activity is still hard hit for the foreseeable future. (travel obviously, restaurants and much entertainment)

Zero interest rates coming up next? This is one guy explaining the feds drastic moves ... for a bit of a counterpoint to the "all is well" signals. Start at 35:00 ... he does think Trump can extend market gains, probably through the election. (he looks at momentum, has called the gold/silver market well)

Not having to worry about political events or even natural events like tsunamis and typhoons half a world away will make things a lot better here. We need America's middle class to come back and come back strongly. Steady growth needs to displace bubbles.

We also need to send a message to the rest of the world: "There's no need to come here. You can have what we have in your home country through freedom. What works here in America will work for you if you want it."

Antifag/BLM did a test run on the mall 4 nights ago... tried to flood it.

The TriCities PD and WHP have a LARGE presence/mutual aid/3 agency SWAT unit in the area.

They used very professional response of overwhelming display but not use of force, channeling perps into designated killing grounds, er, I mean movement corridors, and selected whacking of pee-pee's, as one does, and it was shut down pretty quick and the streets were clear of roaming packs of yutes of color by 0130 or so.

New targets selected for today, three areas to be attacked simultaneously preventing massive collective force protection. Attack the east hospital that serves the Hispanic community (since they are now all White) while hitting the middle class north shopping area and the far west White better off area... each miles from the next...

Well thought out guerrilla tactic terrorism.

Last couple of months I have been saying and repeating that the Democratic Party is a blight on our republic.

They are the party of lynching. Not "staid" Republicans.

The Republican Party was birthed in Lockean idealism, especially applied to the rights of the slave, and the re-emphasis on the founding as a representative republic, not a reactive democracy.

However, I care nothing for the current Republican Party. Just it's grand tradition of civil order and statemanship.

Drudge is wildly flailing around doing his best to paint everything as horrible. I check in now and again just to see how far off the rails he's gone. This time, he's got a bunch of "But!" headlines, such as black unemployment still on the rise. Of course, you can guess where they link to.

They are definitely that evil. The only question is whether they are that reckless and desperate.

This is like the difference between the USSR and a rogue state on the topic of atomic weapons.
With the USSR, their *ability* to destroy us was never in doubt, so the intelligence focus was on their willingness/motivation to do so and state of mind.
With the rogue states, their *motivation* to destroy us is not in doubt, so the intelligence focus is on their ability to do so.

I have to agree that I fear that is the plan. The RefuseFascism group has made it clear that getting rid of Trump and Pence is the goal (which of course has nothing to do with a dem cop killing a dem perp). DC mayor wants to clear the route for this to happen by throwing out the Guard and military.

I was actually thinking same, only before the plandemic. However, as November nears, and the realities of Joe's "abilities" solidify - we're going to be hearing the rhetoric dialed up to 11. They've already gotten the crazies to come out of the woodwork, now to keep them agitated. All it takes is one following marching orders.

Trump needs to do something to put them on the defensive. I think he was moving there previously, but things need to ratchet up big time. Hell, bring Soros up on RICO charges. Deport his ass. That would have them in an instant seizure.

In addition, his announcement of specious facts has always had a little bit different delivery than his OBVIOUS FACTS ONLY AN IDIOT WOULD CONTRADICT WTF. Compare his "TRUMP USED TEAR GAS" posts to the posts about "WE SANE MIL TYPES CAN SNIFF OUT YOU TRUMPERS".

Because if we get rid of cops and let everybody out of prison, you're only going to get the more willful people back into society.

That's not a way to *tame* society, it's a way to increase the scale of the spread of behaviors.

And these people have been YEARS campaigning AGAINST exactly what would make "community squads" effective: armed civilians.

Plus, with an informal group like a "community policing squad" there will be no ethics rules. I can stall/divert the squad on that home you're invading for drug money if you give me a cut--since nobody is "official", there is only the crime of colluding, not the crime of offering bribes.

425 10,000 arrests last week for violence in service of the dems' false narrative of epidemic racism, oppression, and violence against minorities.

Just to get a sense of the scale of the senseless blue violence on blue communities, 10,000 is only about 0.003% of the population out there getting arrested for getting violent. I'll presume that the racial makeup matches US population demo.

That means, this past week roughly 99.997% of America was NOT out last week getting violent, looting, committing arson, committing murder, etc.

To hear the media tell it, it was all some giant statement of resistance to the epic and historic oppression faced by minorities in America. Of course, they are full of baloney and looking to goose the dems' poll numbers with black American voters, so they can continue using them while they continue destroying their families and their communities. Tragic, but true.

But that is 99.997% of America, 99.997% of black Americans, 99.997% of white Americans, 99.997% of Asian Americans, 99.997% of hispanic Americans, and so on, were not out committing violence last week in service of the dems' false narrative of epidemic racism, oppression, and violence against minorities.

Hey, I got a great idea. I know this is going to sound crazy and all. But why don't we refer to all of those various groups as AMERICANS. That's right. Roughly 99.997% of AMERICANS were not out committing violence last week in service of the dems' false narrative of epidemic racism, oppression, and violence against minorities. Well done, AMERICANS. You did not take dems' bait.

We can argue that the arrests would have been higher if the blue leaders would have let police maintain law and order effectively, which could have sent numbers lower, if the risks of being a violent opportunist were more tangible and apparent.

As usual, they put the real motivation buried in the middle:

Biden's call Tuesday for more police reform and oversight helped shore up support among progressives, especially those who are young and nonwhite, as evidenced by the endorsement later in the day from former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro -- the only Latino and the youngest Democrat to run against Biden for president -- endorsed his former rival, citing the proposed reforms.

The Democratic group For Our Future said its research showed police brutality was a top five issue for young voters and voters of color in five of Florida's seven major Democratic metropolitan strongholds in 2018, and it remains a big concern in urban areas of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio.


This is a minority swing-state play, in the hops that they can swing those states through their preferred ethnic minority groups. There is a method to it. If the minority votes they're after outnumber the police votes they'll lose, then if this can get them a pick-up (they clearly think it can), then it's the sensible move. Only the Dems think like this, btw. Republicans want to bring in more voters and not lose the ones they have, making for a more inclusive/universalist campaign strategy. The Dems, though, play group identity politics and so strategies like this make sense (at least on paper - who knows if it works).

Neither do I. And the reason for that is that I look more for what PROGDA doesn't say instead of what they say. I don't see or hear any stories about ousting the Dem mayors or governors who are still trying to crush their local economies nor even any rumblings of discontent. Their silence speaks volumes, to coin a phrase.

This coming November could see a Regean-esque landslide that sweeps Dems out of orifice and back under their rocks for a generation. The only reason that didn't happen back in '92 was that we didn't have that Intarwebz thingy that remembers each and every jot and tittle of information. We get to use that now to our advantage.

I doubt this even more than an assassination attempt. Mattis and Esper were going for the usual "bipartisan" smear to try and force Trump into capitulation. But officers ain't shit without soldiers, and very few will RELIABLY follow such a coup attempt. Get even one Trump sympathizer in your cadre, and people will be hanging from meat hooks.

All that assumes that Trump has any trust in the top brass after years of grotesque failures. He's likelier to purge the Joint Chiefs than see them rebel.

SCOTUS says the government can put reasonable "time, place, and manner" restrictions on first amendment speech rights.

Asking protesters to move temporarily so that the president can come through safely is not an unreasonable restriction on anybody's speech rights. And the cops were only asking them to move a safe distance away, temporarily, and not demanding that they stop protesting altogether.

And of course, no protester has the right to assault cops just because they don't want to move.

1) End police unions. End ALL public sector unions, PERIOD. If you are taking money from the taxpayer, you don't belong to a union.

2) Set up "no-knock" raids so that they are harder to authorize than a launch of a nuclear missile.

3) Give the police less to do. This means fewer laws.

4) No government entity should ever be allowed to include fines and tickets in their budgets.

5) Reduce/end gun control laws and encourage the people to be armed, thereby reducing the reliance on a police force.

6) Have everyone - cops and the citizenry - know and understand the role of the police. It is to investigate crime. NOT to "serve and protect", NOT to keep us safe."

7) Cops should be more Spiderman and less Batman.

You mean more reform because it's continuously reforming. Today's law enforcement are choir boys compared to 100 years ago and every subsequent decade since. Funny how we don't give a second thought to those old movies in the 40's and 50's where the cop yells at a fleeing suspect ' STOP or I'll shoot. Bam! bam Bam!'

566 -This is so weird. So I saw on Twitter where I am basically banned there was all this vicious, angry back and forth about how Trump said George Floyd would be happy with the jobs numbers and people who were about to go off on him found the longer tape said something different and that every journalist was cutting the tape to mislead the audience. Evidently there is a full media pile on with another deceptively edited clip.
-Then I come here and see what it's all about. We have great news? So dirtbag press is trying to find a way to make this good news "racist" or bad?-Candace Owens tweeted a chart showing how MSM coverage of BLM spiked twice, now and 2016 election so she clearly thinks this is about election.
-This is Medieval war where each side keeps upping the ante. Press hid their bias for decades, pretended to be neutral. Conservatives create radio and FOX, get some GOP elected. So in 2008 MSM just un-masks and actively promotes Obama. Tea Party is created, anti RINO, more populism and a billionaire with nuclear level charisma steps forward taking on all liberal institutions, RINO's, Bushes, Clintons, etc. and uses social media plus negative press to his advantage and WINS. So now the tech giants are banning us and burying our comments, the media is going into atomic overdrive, they're pushing a race war with Soros BLM and anarcho Communist Antifa.
-It's nuclear war out here. I demand we beat these vicious lying Lefty babies again. They are weak at their core. You just have to actually fight them. We can do this but we really have to be fighting on all fronts. The Left does all kinds of illegal shit, I feel like lawsuits, court packing, Trump media, politicians stepping forward just as vocally as the Left, and so on are really necessary. This is the beginning, not the end. To have the Left fighting full throttle while GOP politicians play like this is a polite round of golf makes me sick. There's like 3 feisty Republicans against an onslaught of weaponized vicious lying filthy Dems.

Well, they've brought down "intellectualism" to a point of agreement with the left and have redefined it by lefty principles.

They go around thinking that they are in line with intellectual principles, but they've brought the ceiling down to their reach.

True, rigorous, analytical principles cannot be seen for the facade ceiling of "lefty intellect".

They often have little idea of their gap in intellectual processing.

I think the amount that lefties delude themselves is like an *induced* Dunning-Kruger effect.

570 Much of the street rioting etc. is directly from the Color Revolution playbook but that doesn't work if the head of state is not a correct klepto murderous crook. The US is not the PI (Aquino), the Ukraine (Yanukovych), or Romania (Ceausescu).

At some point, the average Joe and Josephine in public becomes disgusted and that is happening now. Lefty liberals with jobs and stuff watching a Democratic party veering into the ditch in blue states and cities may not vote for Trump but they may just not vote at all.

The term "first responder" is so grating. The first responder on the scene are those who are already there at the scene: the victims. (I forget who said it, but I think it was a sheriff in WI: "You are your own first responder". He's right.)

Posted by: Catch Thirty-Thr33 at June 05, 2020 01:46 PM (ejsiI)

575 @whig, it's not the Color Revolution playbook, it's the Russian Revolution playbook. They don't intend to win in 2020, just to reduce the legitimacy of the government by demonstrating to the people that the government will not or cannot protect them. They're playing a longer game. It was 1905 when the Bolsheviks stormed the Winter Palace (which we may see repeated tomorrow), but April 1917 when the Kerensky government took over from the Tsar, November 1917 when Lenin and the Bolsheviks took power, and the mid-1920s before they finally consolidated control. The organizers know this history, many since they wore red diapers.

577 Yesterday Amazon had a BLM banner across my screen. Today I hear news one of their distribution centers is on fire. Guess I'm not the only one who was not shedding a tear. Somehow I doubt the warehouse, an epicenter of capitalism, set ablaze is really "for George." Anarcho-Commies setting up black people.
--Unfortunate update is there are conflicting reports. Some are saying the distribution center/warehouse does NOT belong to Amazon, their trucks were there but some reports are saying it wasn't theirs. I don't know, Lefties are vicious and stupid and could easily burn the wrong building.

I hate the term first responder as well -- it's an example of a type of corruption of language that pisses me off. I can't really think of a proper term for this type of corruption, but it's a part of over-complexity, and our credentialist culture. You've got to make everything sound big and complicated.

The prototypical example is you get some local yokel official and put him in front of a TV camera. He tries to sound professional and complicated and so tries to use big words. Rather than speaking in simple, clear terms, it thus becomes a convoluted, silly sounding mess.

"First responder" was born out of that.

And now, I've got to go finish hoeing my corn and okra.

Interesting history of the Bolshevik Revolution. The Project Veritas tapes showed the Bernie Bros were very motivated by Commie history, albeit a complete fantasy version where gulags were wonderful, they're not reading the Gulag Archipelago.

On campus professors do full fantasy versions of Communism, openly praising the Cuban revolution and whatnot.

Wonder why Breitbart stopped exposing all this Communist infiltration in academia? It's worse than ever now spilling onto our streets.

The market has been skyrocketing over the last couple of weeks. I thought those people were crazy.

They're not quite back to last February, but they're close - which, given everything we've been through, is f***ing amazing.

The other part is a desperate desire to have a long terrible depression because the media hates Americans.
