    Drop in U.S. Jobless Rate Sign of Demo Shift - Bloomberg


    The drop in U.S. unemployment so far this year may be an early glimpse of what’s to come as the workforce ages.

    The jobless rate, which was 9.4 percent in December 2010, declined to 8.6 percent last month, according to Labor Department data issued Dec. 2. The report also showed payrolls have climbed by 132,000 a month on average in 2011, around the pace most economists say would keep the rate stable as the population grows.

    At play is a decline in the share of the working-age population, known as the participation rate, meaning that the economy needs to create fewer jobs to bring down unemployment. While some of the decrease has been caused by discouraged workers dropping out of the labor force, another driver is that the baby-boom generation is starting to move into retirement, according to economist Dean Maki.

    “Demographic forces are the single biggest factor pushing the participation rate down,” said Maki, chief U.S. economist at Barclays Capital Inc. in New York and a former economist at the Federal Reserve. “This is a bit of a slow-moving drama but it’s likely to become more important in coming years.”

    So the left is banking on boomers retiring to bring UE down?

    If this had any depth, there wouldn't be a bunch of Pee partiers mucking up my local library right now.

    dear litttle man , there are people who can contemplate many pieces of information and see how they all revolve arround each other and create a bigger indication of what the future will hold.

    You are not one of them.

    You seem to be only able to deal with one scrap of information at a time and seem to believe these bits of information happen in a vacume.

    This is not the only factor effecting the outcomes.

    There are many and many of them are pointing to a much better year for Americans next year.

    Im sorry that you dont like the fact it will be a much better year for Americans next year.

    The baby boom will retire at increasing paces.

    This will open up the job market every year for a decade to come.

    I don't understand how. The majority have underwater mortgages, don't have shit saved up, and SS,on average, wouldn't even pay for a decent monthly bar tab.
