Nasdaq ^

Posted on 05/02/2012 7:21:55 AM PDT by sunmars

WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)--U.S. factory orders fell at the sharpest pace in three years in March, a sign that demand is slowing amid an uneven economic recovery.

Orders for manufactured goods declined 1.5% to $460.46 billion, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That matched expectations of economists surveyed by Dow Jones Newswires.

Factory orders over the previous month were revised down, as well, to a 1.1% increase from an initial estimate for a 1.3% gain.

Ahh.. Nostalgia.
I was just thinking back to the days (2006) when the media called creating 500,000 jobs a month the WORST ECONOMY SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION!

They wrung their hands and said it was a “jobless recovery.” And they even coined the term “McJob” to disparage the several hundred thousand jobs a month that were being created. And never forget, they said 400,000 per month were needed simply to accommodate new entries into the work place (now that threshold is a wee bit smaller at 200,000). Weird.

Funny, seems like “McJob” was no longer a word in Janury 2009....

Factory orders over the previous month were revised down

The government is publishing numbers they know are wrong. Like journalists their information is now "fake but politically advantageous". If these were innocent mistakes the over/under revisions would occur 50/50. Now we can't trust their numbers even after the 5th revision. The stock market still responds somewhat as if these numbers were real, but that won't continue because the pattern is now obvious.

Bad news is actually good news as now we can expect the Fed to print more money (QE3). See how that works?

“WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)—U.S. factory orders fell at the sharpest pace in three years in March, a sign that demand is slowing amid an uneven economic recovery. “

The propagandist threw out his back writing that sentence.

Lead sentence starts with:

"As the economy continues to roar to life solely due to the Obama Administration's heroic efforts to reverse the disastrous policies of its predecessors, some vestiges of those horrendous Bush years continue to hinder a return to full prosperity."

Things are going great here in West Texas right now....tied for the lowest unemployment rate in the nation, almost impossible to find a house etc.

That could all change if Obama put on the endangered list this lizard that could hurt oil production, however. He would like nothing less than to destroy the Texas economy.

What the hell? Is this a first? A downtrend in a economics article isn’t “unexpected”???????

Anyone with half a brain new this has been a fake economic “recovery” with partisan hacks pushing fake numbers.
What always happens is the real data catches up with false claims but Obama was hoping that it wouldn't catch up until after the election.

And further unexpected news today-—

U.S. stocks fall after weak reading on jobs

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — U.S. stocks fell Wednesday after a report showing employers in the private sector made fewer hires in April than many on Wall Street expected, casting doubt on the strength of Friday’s nonfarm payrolls report.

This isn't unexpected ...

Economists have been sayin' [for months] that lower unemployment, rising job creation, and rising factory orders are a sham ...

Unemployment down since fewer people were looking for jobs and not counted ...

Rising jobs since manufacturers needed to temporarily produce more product for their customers. These customers finally had shelf stocks depleted to the point where they had to be replenished.

Factory orders rose, due to paragraph, above.

Now its all crashing back down ...

How are those millions of government regulations and free trade working out for all of you? Halftime in America Clint Eastwood says. If it were half time China would be thrashing U.S. by 10000 to 0. The referees = our government are on china’s side.

Obama sucks.
