    4Q productivity gain a tepid 1.3%

    The story is from the AP.

    4Q productivity gain a tepid 1.3%

    For all of '16, rate just 0.2%; claims for jobless benefits fall

    That's the headline from the AP story by Martin Crutsinger and Paul Wiseman

    Tepid, huh?

    Thanks, Obama!

    And it was perfectly acceptable to do it to Obama, but this is "different."

    Trump has gotten all of his picks through, some of the most insane and counterproductive picks humanly possible.

    Obama's SC pick is denied for almost a full year, the people DID make a decision for their SC pick, they chose Obama to decide!

    If it wasn't for lies and cheating you people wouldn't know how to participate.

    Is this how you run your daily lives. is cheating to get what you want what you teach your children?

    Thx
    Thanks from BitterPill

    Both sides do it.

    They are more interested in obstructing the "other" side, and maintaining their own power, than serving the American people.

    I thought you knew that...

    Best thing would be term limits for Congress, but it's unlikely since the inmates are running the asylum.

    Productivity growth fell off abruptly, STARTING in 2005.

    We do NOT understand why.

    But Miller47 may perhaps wish to note that that was four years BEFORE Mr. Obama took up residence in the White House.

    Yeah, he said he was going away.

    But, I am glad to have him back.

    He can tell us, again, how smart he is.

    And again, and again, and again...

    We never get enough of that.

    Welcome back BigLeRoy!!!

    I've never said I'm 'smarter' than anyone here. I DO, however, happen to know VASTLY more about economics than you do. No doubt that is because I have been INTENSIVELY studying the subject for a period of time now approaching half a century, and have been teaching the subject for more than half of that time.

    Luckily we should start seeing some gains in productivity in the Trump economy and reclaim some of the losses of the Obamaconomy.

    Everywhere you look employers are expanding and automating. There was nothing to invest capital in the Obamaconomy, there was no growth and no hope for meaningful growth in markets, now that capital is going to work right here in the USA and productivity will rise as a result.
