    Some dates to remember. The Democrats took congress in 2006, Obama took office in 2008 and the Republicans took control of the house in 2010. It appears the Republicans are doing the first rule of medicine – do no harm.

    The EM ratio is back to what it was 30 years ago. This might be due to late-born baby boomers leaving the job market early, and the older baby boomers as well as pre-boomers retiring.
    There is also the notion of a jobless recovery.
    I don’t think the employment rate at a point in time is the result of which party is in the majority, or sitting in the Oval Office at that same point in time.

      It’s never about who is in office, it’s about the policy they pass while in office. For example, Bush was aware of the coming meltdown long before it happened but was unable to get the Democrats to move on the problem. Currently the Republicans have a plan which will get the economy moving and have several times moved it to the senate where it sits on the table with no action taken. Obama currently wants to let part of the Bush tax cuts expire. Can anybody say double dip recession?

  3. According to Dr. Keith Hall, economist at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, the employment-to-population ratio is the most accurate indicator of labor market health. This is because the employment ratio takes into consideration population growth.
