The U.S. labor market has slowly but steadily recovered since the end of the Great Recession in 2009. The unemployment rate dipped below 4 percent for the first time in nearly 17 years in April, and several indicators of labor market slack, such as involuntary part-time work and the number of long-term unemployed, have declined as well. But despite continued improvement in the labor market, wage growth has remained elusive. So what are we to make of an economy where more and more people are employed, and yet wages and take-home pay are failing to take off? On average, are workers better off, or is there a sense of frustration that earnings are stagnant? And should the Federal Reserve be cautious in moving forward with interest rate hikes given the uncertainty about how workers are faring? Why is the lack of wage growth a mystery? First, by several indicators, labor market slack is low. Involuntary part-time work is still marginally higher than its pre-recession level, but it has … [Read more...] about Has our economy fully recovered from depths of Great Recession?
MONACO (AP) — Rafael Nadal is wary of saying he's fully recovered from a troublesome right thigh injury as he defends his Monte Carlo Masters title.The top-ranked Spaniard only recently returned to action at the Davis Cup, after a recurrence of the injury forced him out of the Mexico Open and then Masters tournaments at Indian Wells and Miami last month.Those setbacks followed his crushing disappointment at the Australian Open, where he was forced to retire in the fifth set of the quarterfinal against Marin Cilic.Nadal had expected to make his comeback in Acapulco, but the injury flared up again during a last practice session with French player Adrian Mannarino. Looking back on it Sunday, the 16-time Grand Slam champion said it was mentally "even harder than what happened in Australia" because he was so convinced he would play."I did all the things the right way, practicing one week before, to be ready for the tournament and then it happened," Nadal told reporters. "You're in … [Read more...] about Nadal wary of saying he’s fully recovered from thigh injury
Victims injured in a fatal four-vehicle crash on the Long Island Expressway in Shirley who were treated at two area hospitals are expected to fully recover, a trauma unit director said Sunday. Dr. James Vosswinkel, director of the trauma units for both Stony Brook University Hospital and Brookhaven Memorial Hospital, said that “luckily” all of the patients who went to those hospitals were in stable condition. “Everybody is stable and expected to fully recover,” said Vosswinkel, who is also a Suffolk County police surgeon. The conditions of other patients at other hospitals were not immediately available and their identities had not been released by police. A woman was killed and eight were injured in the accident that happened at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday near Exit 68 on the Long Island Expressway, involving a pickup truck, two minivans and a motorcycle, authorities said. Police on Sunday still had not released the name of the woman. Police said the accident … [Read more...] about Doctor: Victims injured in fatal LIE crash expected to fully recover
Last Updated Nov 24, 2009 8:31 PM EST The most recent employment report shows the unemployment rate at 10.2 percent, and the broader unemployment rate that accounts for part-time work and discouraged workers at 17.5 percent. With numbers like these, can we expect good news on the employment front anytime soon? Historically, a good rule of thumb has been that the peak in unemployment lags the trough in economic output by a quarter. Thus, if output begins recovering in the second quarter of the year, unemployment would not begin to decline until the third quarter. But as shown in these graphs of the unemployment rate and NBER-dated recessions, this changed with the 1990-91 and 2001 recessions. The graph below shows the change in the relationship over time:Unemployment and Recessions This second graph highlights that in the most recent recessions, the peak in the unemployment rate came a year or more after the trough in GDP, and that the current unemployment rate is still moving … [Read more...] about Why Employment Might Not Fully Recover Until 2013
