"It's clearly a trend," Goolsbee said. "We've had in the last 3
months, an average gain of a quarter of a million private-sector jobs a
month. That could not be more different than the three-quarters of a
million jobs we were losing when the president took office."
While Goolsbee's optimism reflects improving job numbers in recent
months, other economists view today's report as troubling, given how far
into the recovery the economy is.
"I am very concerned," Heather Boushey, Senior Economist at the
Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank with close ties to
the Obama administration. "At this point in the economic recovery, we
should be seeing reports that we are clearly out of the woods, that this
is net good. And we are not."
Anyway we can lock Goolsby in a room full of 99ers?
