U.S Economy Smashes CBO Projections…Unemployment Far Better Than CBO Thought

The U.S unemployment rate was far better than the CBO projected.

Here is an article from Forbes talking about the projection.


CBO is forecasting that unemployment is likely to rise to 16% and then hold at levels of 10% through the end of 2021. This is mind-blowing. It was just February that the U.S. economy had been riding a wave of record-level low unemployment with numbers as low as 3.5%. Can it really be that in neck-breaking speed unemployment could rise from 3.5% to 16% by summer?

Of course, the numbers we saw yesterday were far better than the CBO projections:

Almost 1.4 Million Jobs were created according to Labor Department figures released Friday.


Nonfarm payrolls increased by 1.37 million in August and the unemployment rate tumbled to 8.4% as the U.S. economy continued to climb its way out of the pandemic downturn.

The unemployment rate was by far the lowest since the coronavirus shutdown in March, according to Labor Department figures released Friday. An alternative measure that includes discouraged workers and those holding part-time jobs for economic reasons also fell, down to 14.2% from 16.5% in July and 22.8% at the peak in April.

Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been expecting growth of 1.32 million and the jobless rate to decline to 9.8% from 10.2% in July.

Even the Mainstream Press can’t cover it up:

We aren’t tired of winning yet!

End the lockdowns!
