The #JobsReport came in at 372,000 jobs gained, the #unemployment rate at 3.6%, which was coupled with #wage growth of 5.1% year-over-year: all solid numbers in a historic context.
Still, when taken in the context of much of the #economic data coming in, last week’s #employment report reemphasized two key tenets of the economy and consequently of #investment markets: 1) the U.S., and indeed the global economy, is tangibly slowing…
…and 2) we are probably past the #employment peak and will likely witness #LaborMarket slowing in the back half of the year.

For overall heart and brain health, move more ... and sit less." Steven P. Hooker greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/06/09/dai…

Anyone perusing the top articles of major media outlets last weekend would have read several pieces on the extraordinary #shortages being witnessed in the U.S. #economy today, and particularly those in the #labor market.
The tone of many articles was pessimistic, suggesting that the #supply-side #shortages and dislocations may be systemic, or long-term, but we think there’s evidence that the U.S. #economy will display considerably greater dynamism and resilience than the pessimists believe.
First, it’s vital to recognize that this is a #supply constraint problem, not one of #demand. Indeed, strong demand is being driven by a host of powerful influences: 1) household balance sheets never been cleaner and HH #wealth is $25 trillion greater now than pre-Covid level.

Great conversation with @MerrillLynch CIO Chris Hyzy, as part of their #MerrillPerspectives event. Some of the topics we discuss follow and the full conversation can be accessed here: ml.com/2021-midyear-e…
On the #market lessons stemming from the pandemic, I suggested that- stepping back- while a lot has been thrown at the #economy and markets over the past 30 years, in every case the #policy response has been critical to evaluate in judging the ultimate impact: policy matters!
That said, we think there is an overestimation of the importance of exceedingly low #policy rate levels to the recovery but maintaining the stability and #liquidity of the financing #markets is critical, particularly at the top end of the capital stack.

1/10: Do state actions affect the #psych #wellbeing of govt benefit recipients? In a new #openaccess @JPART1991 paper, @MartinBaekgaard, @SassMikkelsen, @JonasKrogh and I investigate this in the context of Danish #unemployment benefits. Short answer: Yes! academic.oup.com/jpart/advance-…
2/10: To test the question, we rely on survey, quasi, & natural experimental evidence, utilizing the fact that in March last year, as part of the #COVID19dk #lockdown, the usually strict active #labormarket policies of DK were suddenly suspended -> benefits became unconditional.
3/10: In other words, from 1 day to the next, unemployed ppl did no longer have to comply with a lot of demands (job training, work requirements, mandatory control meetings with caseworkers, documentation requirements, etc.) to receive benefits. What happened to their well-being?
