There's not a whole lot of actual economic data yet and therein lies the RUB because for all the measuring of this economy that the government does and it is a lot Kobe. Nineteen is probably gonNA compromise the ability to gather the data that we need to figure out what's going on. Here's marketplace's Mitchell Hartman. As economic life is increasingly disrupted data is likely to become less accurate and reliable. I because businesses and consumers might not respond to monthly surveys with other more pressing things on their minds and second says former. Bls Commissioner Eric Aggression. Economic behavior itself is changing or example. If all of a sudden you have a lot of people working at home you know the patterns restaurant usage. You're going to change dramatically and that could make the basket of goods and services that's used to track consumer inflation less representative of people's actual spending Sam stovall at cf are a research says right now. Economic Reality is changing faster than the data contract. He says government reports on employment spending and investment will eventually be revised but by then the economic data will simply end up being confirmational. The market itself is a leading indicator and that is already telling us it believes that the globe is going to be heading into recession in ordinary times the Federal Reserve would be reading the economic tea leaves of government reports to chart monetary policy but says former Fed governor Frederic Mishkin. This is unprecedented. What's happening is a huge shock that basically the economic data is not gonNA reflect very clearly for awhile seems like right now. We're flying in an economy without some of the key data points. We usually use to plot. Our course I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace In keeping with the theme. We've Kinda got going today that Wall Street's gyrations gripping though they are are less important than what's going on out there in oils lives. We're going to check in now with one of the people. We are following for our series. The United States of work. Remember that's ten people that we found who form sort of representative sample of the American labor force as a whole Dr Scott Ends Loni is an independent family physician in Logan Ohio where there are as of yet no confirmed cases of Corona virus nearby. But as we're discovering this virus and the associated disquiet go beyond just patients in hospital beds. We caught Dr Baloney between patients in his clinic. Today it's good to talk to Ya. Let's see or talk to you what what's the life of a small town doctor like in the Asia Corona virus. How are things Oh just Trying TO PUT OUT FIRES. Many of my patients are coming in and just a lot of questions. So we're trying to put out the facts in Prevent hysteria locally people are still It's a mindset of of being prepared. Our our shelves are empty. Toilet papers gone and Hand sanitizer those things are are being taken off the shelves pretty rapidly. What about you as a medical professional? Can you get the supplies? You need No that's that's one of the issues I just got online with my medical supplier again in a mask or back ordered We just went to get in order for gloves in size. Weiner gone and I just got an Amazon and the prices are just going through the roof if if things are even available man You have a separate gig. We talked about you Teaching but you also in the community you're on the school board right correct and the president of our local school board has well Mr President. Let me ask you this question. What you doing about the schools in hocking county and are you. Are you set up to do remote learning? Should it be necessary? Well we had an emergency school. Were meeting on Tuesday And we are in the process of preparing in case governor tells us we need to close the schools right now. We have decided we are not. We have not closed the schools yet. But what we've working on. Currently as having the teachers all put together packets of curriculum that can be sent home with our kids because unfortunately We have Internet access but most of our kids do not have Internet access at home. So there's there's a large percentage of that we couldn't just move everything online for most of our kids so we have to go back to the old times a paper and packets and We used to do that for snow days. We blizzard packets. But hopefully this will decrease the loss of instructional time. Yeah it seems. A big stumbling block and and one that might differentiate kids based on whether they've got broadband or not or whatever right have right. Yeah it's IT'S A. It's a big problem when you live in rural area. There's many places in our county have absolutely no Internet Internet access to your actual second gig though at at Ohio University you teach.

I'm Kai Ryssdal most days on this program. If you're one of those who listens listens to the numbers all the way through and remind me to tell you my theory about that one but if you usually do listen all the way through you most as you say something like bonds rose the yield on the tenure Tino the one point six eight percent just because I say it though doesn't mean everybody gets it or what it means so for today's installment of our series kyw explains where we take things real slow to explain what's really going on the bond market. Hey Chi Chi hi hi. You recently asked what's going on with economy. So how do these two concepts work together. I WanNa know what's going on in this economy. The bond market is a pretty good place to start. Bonds are in their most basic form. I owe us the city or the federal government or a company sells bonds John's those US sometimes called debt with the promise that after a certain period of time called the maturity date. You'RE GONNA get your money back plus some interest that the interest is called the yield and there are all kinds of different bonds out there yielding different things we mostly pay attention to order called treasuries its debt bet did issued to investors by the US Treasury to fund our deficit. That's Kathy Bus Johnson. She's the chief financial economist at Oxford Economics. The bond market or the Fixed Income Market reacts very closely with changes in economic news or data did a like a monthly Salihi Employment Payroll data or consumer price data or published by the Bureau Labor Statistics or in a nutshell a lot of the economic essentials as you hear US talk about on this program now within all the different kinds of treasuries. There are government bonds. You can buy that mature a couple of days all the way out to thirty years and within that there is one bond that we watch the most if you're a US consumer or US investor the ten year Treasury note is probably the first benchmark to keep an eye on Ryan Phillips. He's at sage vast wealth management. It's really a general barometer of interest rates in the economy because does and here we go back to Catholic ransack. The tenure yield will reflect current economic activity expectations for future economic activity also expectations for future interest rates set by the interest rate path for the Federal Reserve. Expectations is the key word there because once the government sells its bonds. Investors Traders really bond traders. Take a look at the economy and ask not how are things going right now. But how do we think things are. GonNa be economically in the next couple of months and years and that is why the bond market is really the one to watch. There is so so much to explain in this economy. Let us know what you want to know. You can do that at marketplace dot org or you can tweet me. I'm at Cairo..

"A group. That's at high risk of medical bankruptcy. It assumed that anyone not hospitalize belies could not suffer medical bankruptcy even though people who aren't hospitalized in the course of a year account for four fifths of out of pocket medical bills that no one is bankrupt by bills for a child so partners care and that potentially bankrupting illnesses never start before the moment of how hospitalizations option contradicted by the study's data so this is by david himmelstein steffie would handler distinguished professor of public health at the city university diversity of new york so there's something very strange going on at the washington post and i don't know what accounts for it but it's real well i mean there was the one that ah several weeks ago with the multiple jobs <hes> people having work multiple jobs to earn a living where essentially the guy was like well. It is literally millions of people. That's not really that many. I mean you know i think they're showing the ball and a lot of things including i mean and then you look at the nate silver phenomenon where you know oh his whole brand is built on being supposedly an objective arbiter of numbers and he's just fixated on sanders on twitter. It's very strange. I mean never trust people. People who say they're not ideological. Period is definitely something that i would pretty strongly certain. I think that we're going to need to upgrade fact checking fact checking in his yeah. It's gonna need kessler kerry different thing because these people are useless at best well. Let's let's actually do. We have that clip of jordan. Peterson peterson calling for a debate does a good example something in fact check right. We'll get to that in a moment but here you have. Millions of americans is a forced to work two to three jobs. Just as five said bernie sanders the bureau labor statistics shows that nearly eight million people hold more than one job but most of those extra jobs are part-time not full-time time. It's like if you work. How could you work two full time full time jobs. That's the metric look in the millions wins in quotation of people amount to just five percent of americans with jobs so that means ninety five percent. Anna workers are not working two or three jobs survive making this a misleading statement and the statement again read the statement. Millions of americans are forced to work two two or three but not tens of millions like he didn't say raid or a majority of americans or most american. I i love. It's like there's all these different ways. You could shift it for it to not work but well. There's one exact framing where it's like. Yup five millions would be a formulation asian of millions and yeah there you go. There's been democrats that have been a little bit. You know cavalier with the way they cite that make. It seem like maybe twenty five percent of super something million well. It's also a great deal that it's like yeah. It's just five million people like driving uber twenty hours a week in addition to working working a fulltime job in order to survive hair look. This is important to talk about because we're talking about today. We're talking about the washington post fact doc checking bernie sanders in an just bizarre way we're talking about joe biden going out there and telling a you know semi-fabricated semi-fabricated story saying that the details not important genuine rage. He inhabited that role so he's got a chill didn't bring jello. There are times where something can be completely fake but also completely right right and apparently someone created an online jordan peterson text to speech the speech program. It's been taken down but in a violation of free speech. I would no kidding tires on tation of station listener. Josh <hes> apparently created one and let's hear it afternoon dave stephen others in the i do stop up being cowards and debate sam center.

Who's on assignment, the bureau labor statistics has just released its March jobs report, one of its most watched indicators last month's report was pretty disappointing.

So without further ado, the big headline number for March is jobs added one hundred ninety six thousand and employment rate held steady three point eight percent. Those are the numbers now for. The context. Julia Coronado is the founder of macro policy perspectives. Hey, julia. Hey, good morning morning. So this looks like a pretty reassuring bounce back after February's low. Yes, this is a indication that the US economy is resilient despite some of the worries of late that we might be heading into a recession. We saw a strong particularly in service sector hiring. So it is reassuring. Okay. But tummy about wages. They were down a touch to three point two percent. Yeah. That's that's the disappointing aspect of the report we real exceleron wage growth last year, and it seems to have plateaued in recent months. So that came in on the weak side, the annual pace of wage growth, actually, slow three point two percent from three point four percent still better than where we were a year ago. But we would like to see continued acceleration there to give purchasing power to consumers, and what about manufacturing it lost a few thousand jobs, not a lot. But it was the first drop since late twenty sixteen. Yeah. And that's to be expected given to pooling in the global manufacturing that we've seen global growth has slowed led by manufacturing. The US is not going to be immune to that. So we are seeing manufacturing hiring slow and that should be a trend.

"Right. As we continue with Steve Moore and Chuck before with us. It's only a little over two years now when we can go back and compared to the Obama administration policies and spread the wealth around and you didn't build that. And you know, what are we end up with thirteen million more Americans on food stamps, eight million more in poverty. Now, we have more than a million jobs available than we have people on unemployment an incredible. Environment for people to build their careers change careers make more money get better benefits. It's a great opportunity now businesses now are investing more in in American cities and towns in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Wisconsin Michigan. And they'll just I I'm just not sure what they think if we take away oil and gas, and we take away cars and planes and cows, and we promise everybody everything's going to be free. And the first estimate is as high as ninety four trillion for the new green deal. What happens to the economy, then Chuck? Well, let me tell you one area where I think I actually agree with a Representative ocasio Cortez. She warned about big government working with big business. Let me add big labor to that. And say, yes, I agree. There crony corporatism doesn't work things like Celinda the Representative from New York. The freshman is espousing what's known as a labor theory of value that is from Marxist theory. She doesn't believe the capital money. The people who invested the people who manage it. The people who are leaders who create businesses. She doesn't believe that they have value. But let's look at manufacturing in the last twenty six months, the first twenty six months under Trump the last twenty six months under Obama, the bureau labor statistics came out with their new data last Friday, and we see that under Trump manufacturers are adding about three hundred ninety nine percent more jobs in manufacturing under Trump than under Obama. And what to me is striking. Sean is if you compare a federal state and local government jobs. Many of them are regulators the people who create red tape Obama's last twenty six months, they grew at about three hundred and three percent more than manufacturing. So government was growing faster than manufacturing. You can't sustain it. You can't pay for that. So Trump under Trump manufacturing was growing one hundred sixty eight percent more than government. All right. I wanna thank you both Steve Moore and Chuck devore. But if you think this is not real well look at the poll, I mentioned earlier. All right, guys. Thank you, eight hundred nine four one Sean toll-free telephone number when we come back. The ranking member that showed a lot of courage last week. Doug Collins, Georgia. By releasing the Bruce or transcripts and all that we learn from them. That's coming up and much more straight ahead.

"And talent on loan from God. This is Bob in Coronado, California. Welcome, sir. I'm glad you were patient and waited. Hi, thank you rush. My comments sort of pertains to the October surprise and ask your opinion next next Friday is the so-called advance freed on the GDP for the third quarter, which I believe is less data driven and the two revisions that follow it. And my question is. Can you see the deep state dropping in a low GDP number and then piling on immediately with its the tariffs? It's the tax cuts failing. It's the sugar high economy is spent and this is what really is happening with all the Trump economics. And it's starting to starting to break up conveniently seven days before you'll election. Well, these numbers would come from the department of labor. Bureau labor statistics. And the US council of economic advisors. These are Trump people in there now, you're right. To be wary of career left wing deep staters in there. I look I wouldn't put anything past these people you can conjure up any scenario you wanted. And I I would bet eight out of ten up. My would tell you. I think are possible. So given who these people are given what they think is at stake here. So if you wanna tell me, if you have an idea that the GDP numbers that come out next Friday might be say monkey with, but it's increasingly tough to use that word and get away with it might have been Jimmy a might be. Well, reworked and so forth to make it look like we're about to fall off the clipper. At least this recovery is just hit a wall. I don't know how effective it would be. But I don't I wouldn't I wouldn't sit here and utilize release suggest to you that it couldn't it couldn't happen. And particularly the areas you mentioned they would love to be able to discredit Trump's tax cuts. They would love to be able. Two. Discredit a whole bunch of like the tariffs and what it's doing trae. The problem is reality the reality on the ground. If the if the if the numbers are. Are ringed to that extent. It just isn't going to jive with reality. And it's it's it wouldn't be. I don't think nearly as effective if something is personal. But I think you have to you have to look at the history of these October surprises. They've tried October surprise in October. They've tried them in September. They've thrown everything they've got at Trump, including during the campaign, the access Hollywood video and that didn't work. Now, he's out there calling the porn star. Who by the way is a backstabbing blackmailing double crossing porn star out there calling her horseface, and there are shutters in the drive-by media FUD who. President who who who doesn't you know what I find interesting about this all of these so called paragon of virtue on the left where one ten perversion has become normal in their world. And they demand that we accept wanton perversion as normal. They sit there and act like. Women austin? But we're not talking about woman. We're talking about a dual. What porn star? Double crossing. Backstabbing? Woman who has tried to destroy the guy with her third rate lawyer, she's not just an innocent ordinary everyday woman that Trump decided to call a name. She is a woman who attempted to ruin him. But for these Liberal Democrats these people in the media to act like people, don't talk presidents dot com on people talk this way. This is what resent what I resent about this the idea that they are clean and pure is the wind driven snow, and they don't think this way. They don't talk this way. What an absolute crock simply look at the things they say about us during the course of your average political day from your Hitler to your Nazis to your this or that they make fun of people's appearances. They make fun of people. I mean, they're they're comedy has become literal hate. And then they act like one of the greatest social transgressions in the history of humanity has occurred when Donald Trump uses the term horseface or when he did not Mark ballsy Ford, but simply re freidan. The truth about her allegations. I just I just find it just a little bit hollow. As though take your pick, take it. Take your pick any left-winger on media. Griping about Trump's using the word horseface and ask yourself if that media reporter never talk that way and the answer, but rush these people aren't president. And he is and this is beneath the dignity of the presidency. Well, I know they look at it. And think of it that way my point is they can try all day long. That's not going to separate Trump from his voters as some of his voters. Shut up back. There's so much going on here. Focus, and they don't need to distract everybody with that stuff. But he did they're also gonna they're not gonna give up trying to link Donald Trump to the murder of the. Of the journalist in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Jamal kashogi. They're still working on that. But I think they're frustrated to know him that nothing they do works. And now, I have a story I have to print I haven't had a chance to print it. Yep. Just cleared the transom here. It's about Trump's approval numbers are probably much better and much higher than anybody on the left and the media wants to admit..

That is a big trend turnaround this Gordon a careerbuilder survey published on Friday but, all things are local what about here in the Houston area join us to talk about it Patrick Jankowski of the greater Houston partnership do. You find similar figures here Patrick what we're seeing is the unemployment rate, is dropping fairly low within below five percent since October whenever you get an unemployment below five percent. That means you're fuel workers out there. It starts to put pressure, on the workforce and they're going to be better off her bitter compensation packages to find these worker so I wouldn't be surprised to see. Some improvement compensation by the End of the year of course that depends of course on what type of field we're talking about here. Which which areas do you think are more prone to sing raises Right now, there is a shortage of workers and the blue, collar sectors of the oil, and gas industry people who work out in the. Field on the drilling rigs on the fracking not. As much so in the white collar sector the oil and, gas industry plus there's always a need. For, workers in healthcare there's always a shortage in the. Texas medical center it seems and general sectors that are serving a growing population things, in retail and restaurants and healthcare again those are sectors which are are definitely adding jobs no k. w., what sectors, are not, like to. Be adding many jobs in mortar the worst areas, to go to ask the boss for a pay raise right now Ask you for a pay. Raise I'd look at my own performance I before. Out there so but we're seeing some weakness in. Construction there's a bit of a contradiction in the numbers on, one hand received some employment is going. Up, there but we're seeing a drop off in construction. Activity also the manufacturing sector if it's tied to oil and gas seems to be, doing better but it manufacturing sector seems to be a little too weak right now Also I would be. A little bit concerned about some of the some of the white, collar sector engineering has been real slow to return after the downturn okay And of course the folks that careerbuilder thinking about the average raise is going, to be right about five percent would you concur. Around here that's what the average race is likely to be the trace I don't. Want. To it is locally but. We're seeing two to three percent? Inflation rate and so the raise any raises that come through a. Hopefully be above the inflation okay minimum of two to three, and what, is just out curiosity because I'm sure you've had plenty people ask you for? A, raise.

The and and if you're someone in the middle of the, pack or, at the bottom of the pack so it's really needs to be based on? Performance okay Needs to be based upon what others in the market are paying if you're. Trying to talk to your boss, about a race it would? Be good to go in and say I know that the market rate is this, and I'm being paid that so I like to be.

"bureau labor" Discussed on Health Care Rounds
"John people who can spend more money for healthcare unless they're absolutely forbidden by authoritarian government are going to do it in are going to get access to so back to that want to continue with the policy stuff but but back to your regional statement around, no country is really tied in productivity has has been able to do you need an authoritarian or do you need a s- where much of industry is state owned? Do you need to have that kind of system for that to exist? We're free. Market here, right? It's you would think that it's in our country's best interest to be moving down this path you would. We're looking for new sources of productivity gain for years back to my old world as labor economists. The bureau labor statistics has been telling us that our productivity is year two years. The growth is subpar compared with what it was decades ago and by their measure, the way they measure it, it is. That's the nature of work has changed a lot in another way, measured output per hour worked is not a very good measure along for now for an awful lot of cans of were. So you think we'd be looking for a new source of productivity, and we think we have an argument and data behind it to show that health could be that form of human capital that we could invest in more productively and get results specially in this behavioral in which is very tough. But we talked about that earlier, but few companies get it, but it's very hard in the US to get people's to stop looking at. Medical costs, which they're paying for in this country as a company and start thinking about the economic losses. They're suffering in the meantime, that's not showing up in the financial statement. So unless you can help them with their medical costs, it's hard to get them to listen their financial people to the productivity are the people who get that are the operations. People see people every day in their plants, showing up with all kinds of problems. A few companies, Dow Chemical's got a worker health index that literally makes managers in the field partly responsible for the health profile of their population at their facility. And so part of what they get paid incentive compensation Penzone the health profile of their employees. That's the right way to do it corporately. Do many companies do that? No, they really don't there again. I'll mention, you know, if you the obvious suspects companies, we work with like Saudi, Aramco, and Unilever, and actually in US Chevron and shell, to some extent shows inter. Net is not based in the US. These are companies that are really paying attention to the health and productivity connection. Why? Why is it in that those that particular industry? I'd have mentioned a few oil and gas companies, and we do work heavily with them, but they seem to get this. It's really interesting.
