- Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Ex US Asst. Treasury Secretary: Today’s Jobs Report A Total Farce!
Today a former US Treasury Official told King World News that today’s jobs report is a total farce, and any hint that there is an economic recovery is a lie. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts also warned, “the country is being increasingly deceived by disinformation.” Below is what Dr. Roberts had to say in part I of this extraordinary and exclusive series of written interviews that will be released today.
Eric King: “We just had the employment report come out, Dr. Roberts, your thoughts there?”
Dr. Roberts: “Well, it’s not believable, Eric. They claim 185,000 new private service jobs. They are showing jobs in retail trade. Of course the statistics show that retail sales are falling, so why are they having more employment?
They show a tremendous number of jobs in professional and business services, 73,000 (new jobs). This is not believable either. They also have 38,000 jobs in waitresses and bartenders. Now, for an economy that’s not going anywhere, you won’t have people hiring in retail trade and general merchandise stores where a lot of that employment is alleged to be.
