TLRWire tracks macro-economic trends, often that are missed by the mainstream press. They are experts in US labor data, flows of funds, and have been writing about inequality and poor investment decisions for over thirty years. They are also known for highlighting economic narratives, beliefs people hold that are not supported by the facts, and dangerous because they creep into policy, supporting this kind of work in a broad context.
They have worked with state-level revenue estimators for thirty years tracking revenue trends to support their assessments of current conditions. Their revenue contacts are experienced statisticians and economists - not politicians. They all follow specific revenue trends to tell them when the trend is changing, and they pass these along to the analyst as well.
The TLRWire publication schedule is not set, and they send short notes and graphs, and longer pieces covering new developments 3 to 4 times a week.
Their work is useful to academics who are following socio-economic developments, to policymakers and libraries advancing economic literacy, and equality, and to money managers and investors who want the most accurate detail on the US job market, critical to interest rates.
Topics Covered Include:
- Analysis of labor details, employment/population ratios; why the job openings series is misleading, and alternative ways of assessing the US job market;
- In-depth investigation of public and private investment trends, and their ongoing side-effects;
- Regional studies aimed at improving the economic conditions of communities affected by legacies of slavery in the United states; and
- The positive relationship between ecological and economic outcomes, always with linked examples.
