NC regular Diptherio sent us a podcast, part of a series called “Economics for the Rest of Us,” which discusses the considerable shortcomings in how unemployment data is collected and reported. He warns that most of the points are likely well known by members of the commentariat. Nevertheless, this segment is a good review and also breaks the issues down in a way that makes it more accessible to laypeople.
If you have any tips for Diptherio, given that he wants to reach people who are relatively new to economics concepts, please pass them on. And circulate his chat!
