Unemployment rate - guess what - retail hires for the holidays and dumps after - guess it'll be better for tomorrow morning, but reporting for October the agricultural jobs go away in November.

*all* of the damn reports since 1997 have been outrageously over-estimated. That's how we got into this bubble/mess. Errors compound exponentially. Read 12/2 Daily Reckoning. Its an atrocity what has happened. Everyone was over doing it -EVERYONE!
Now we pay for it, the Death March continues. Last two months was just a pause.

Charmin... i'm soooooooooooo glad you posted Tom OBriens interview with Roger Arnold. I was in the car listening to the interview.... And when Roger mentioned that he thought we were closer to 10% unemployment I said, BINGO...
I remember posting sometime about a year ago that I thought unemployment would be at 10% during this bear. I know that both me and Goldie have harped the unemployment song... the government has been whitewashing stats whenever they can for the past 3 years.
Also, as an aside, when CBNC was interviwing mall traffic folks on Friday after T-Day, one of the "interviewees", (man in his late forties or so) said that his family was spending the same as usual.. that the economy was fine. I dropped my jaw and thought "you *ss". The man was obviously living in an ivory tower; my xmas wish for him was that he be removed from it, so he could see what was going on in the real world.
