The White House expects employment to grow an average of 95,000 jobs a month this year. In the annual Economic Report of the President, Obama sees "clear evidence" the job market is stabilizing but more needs to be done "to eliminate the large jobs deficit that has opened up over the course of the recession."

    Is that +95k jobs in the private sector or public sector?

    Rather like a butcher attempting open-heart surgery, noting after opening up the patient that he doesn't know where to start and announcing "I need to do some more cutting."

    The "talk" becomes more feverish as things get worse. All of this lagging indicators and the ending stimulus are just going to head-fake the hope dealers.

    I am expecting a big jump in jobless in the next monthly report, as I am convinced that the last one was way under-reporting lost jobs.

     

    I would be curious as to how they got their estimate, as it seems pretty rosy compared to most.
