Looking Back at the Labor Market’s Recovery, Part II

By Paul Adkins, Intern 

The first quarter of 2014 saw an extremely harsh and extended winter. But in the second quarter, the U.S. labor market returned to its trend of adding jobs. From December 2013 to March 2014, total non-farm job creation rose by over 100,000 to an average gain of 272,000 jobs per month. Indeed, the second quarter of 2014 showed a promising spring recovery as each month during the quarter posted higher employment gains than the second quarters of 2013 and 2012.  Part of that is due to a slight amount of pent-up demand for workers that comes with warmer weather. But the recent trends also reflect a strengthening of the fundamentals that underlie the economy.

Over the past few years, the economic recovery has been different from other post-war recoveries.  It is uneven, sluggish and its magnitude varies greatly by geographic region and industry. The financial crisis that shocked our economy in 2008 disrupted significant sections of the labor market. Economists still debate the extent to which structural changes are occurring, and rightfully so. But because “this time is [so] different,” it is an interesting exercise to take a deeper look into the labor market trends that have developed since the Great Recession.

June’s consumer confidence numbers from The Conference Board indicate that Americans now have the highest level of confidence in the economy that we have seen since January 2008. Keep in mind that the financial meltdown didn’t happen until September of that year, though clearly the housing market was in deep trouble by then and the overall economy was starting to go off the rails at that point. But, the good news is that American consumers have essentially returned to pre-recession levels of confidence.

By Bill French, Senior Managing Director

I was recently awarded an assignment requiring prime space to lease in a market with close to 99% occupancy. After thoroughly canvassing the market, I could not find any existing space to fulfill my client’s need. However, I noticed some space under construction where progress had stagnated. I contacted the original listing agent who indicated the tenant was experiencing problems with its franchisor, thus the construction delay. I immediately informed my client and prepared a Letter of Intent that I submitted to the agent and landlord that day for consideration. The listing agent recognized that my client had good credit and a great use for the space.

On Monday June 2, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a proposed new rule aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions, the primary greenhouse gas (GHG) emission related to human activities, by 30% at existing power plants by 2030. In particular, the rule aims to discourage dependence on coal, which currently generates about 40% of the country’s electricity.
