‘Largely Political’: US Bureau of Labor Statistics Data ‘Not Hard Science’

With the US economy having only created 20,000 new jobs in February, compared to the expected 180,000 jobs, US and global economic growth are continuing to slow down due to tensions in international trade between major economies, financial policy analyst Daniel Sankey told Sputnik Tuesday.

"How we calculate and quantify jobs is kind of crazy in our society. Though I will say that the fact that it was only 20,000 versus 180,000 is crazy. That matters, even if we were calculating the numbers in kind of skewed ways for political ways, which we are, we can't fake a decrease like that, really, and not have downstream effects," Sankey told hosts John Kiriakou and Brian Becker on Sputnik's Loud & Clear.
