WE HAVE AN ANSWER! DESCRIPTION: Our FEATURE today focuses on an anomaly that is occurring in the US economy that has never surfaced in history since WW 11--- A shortage of workers, increasing wages, asset appreciation and no significant price inflation. A Barron's article reports that one analyst says there will be a shortage of 8.2 Million workers over the next 10 years and the demand for goods is growing faster than the workforce. In another article in the same Barron's edition of March 12th indicates that the US labor force grew by 806,000 in February and the labor force participation rate increased from 63% from 62.7%. We explore this conundrum and contradiction and offer our explanation why it exists.
