Unemployment at 9.1%, U6 unemployment at 16.2%

Unemployment down 0.1% in October to 9.0%. The broader U6 measurement is down 0.3% to 16.2%.

Good news, I think. It'd be nice if things accelerated, but I think that's too much to hope for.

  4. Oh, yes. We'd all like the trend of the past couple months to stay steady or improve.

  5. Amazing looking at the curves and seeing how it gets flatter & flatter & flatter as it moves to contemporary times.
