YOU REPORT . . . YOU DECIDE

Wall Street tanked last week due to weak job increases in the second quarter.

So, here's your assignment for the day. Read this. Then tell me how many jobs were added:

a. 32,000 - the number reported by all media; specifically, the increase in "non-farm employment".
b. 629,000 - the increase in the number of employed persons.
c. Neither 'a' or 'b'.
d. Both 'a' and 'b'.

The answer, of course, is 'd'.

Don't ask.
