It's a game of shells... EVERY week, they revise the previous week upwards, so it looks like there's a decrease. So... Last week was reported as 370,000... Revised upward to 372,000... So, today's 370,000 looks like a dip... Fuzzy math
If they wanted to be fair about it, they'd always incorporate the revision together with the new change. In this case... DOWN 2,000 from the REVISED figure from last week, and UP 2,000 due to the revision...
Flat. Period. No change. The rest is bull.
why don’t they just not report numbers for one week and then we can report numbers that won’t need revision on a one week lag basis. No, too simple and how would Obama be able to play smoke and mirrors
