By Garrick Brown, Research Director

Same store sales for July came in a few days ago with a few surprises. Retail, in general, did better than restaurants and food-related retailers. Obviously, this is a great sign for retail, though not so much for food users. Based on recent trends, one would think that food-related retail would lead the way to improving overall retail numbers. After all, it does include groceries and staples that we all consume.

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.

Looking Back at the Labor Market’s Recovery

By Leigh Ann DeWitte, Intern and Rebecca Rockey, Economist 

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.
