Hey, What’d I Miss? OTE Summary, 9/4 – 9/9

September 9th, 2013 at 9:25 am
  • Over at the NYT Economix blog: highlighting more evidence that part-time work is not driven by Obamacare and arguing that the August jobs report should discourage a September taper.
  • Pointing to a Q&A on economic disparity I did with Tom Moran of the NJ Star-Ledger.
  • On the August jobs report: previewing the data on Jobs Day Eve, noting that the data should point the Fed away from a September taper, and discussing the relationship between the lower unemployment rate and public sector jobs.
  • Illustrating that a higher trade deficit is a drag on economic growth.
  • Looking at how fiscal policy got so turned upside down.
  • Laying out the 20th edition of Sequester Watch: remember, those who forget the sequester are doomed to repeat it.

Music: I wrote an old school jazz tune for this week’s Friday Musical Interlude.
