The question of full employment and music from room 608

Summary:
Over at WaPo, I revisit the argument that a) since economists can’t tell if we’re truly at full capacity in the job market, b) there’s not much in the way and price and wage pressures, and c) the prime-age employment rate is not apparently topping out, we should assume there’s still economic room-to-run. I’m on the road and in room 608, which is why I can’t get this old, uptempo jam by Horace Silver out of my head. If you let it run on YouTube, next thing you know, you’ll be hanging out with Sister Sadie, who is, ftr, great company. Share the post "The question of full employment and music from room 608"
