An encouraging set of job market data, which will have come as little surprise to readers of this site. Even last month it was clear that an apparent rise in the Labour Force Survey measure of unemployment was a statistical illusion. The latest figures show a 34,000 quarterly drop in LFS unemployment to 2.47 million, or 7.8% of the workforce, and a 160,000 rise in employment. More here.

A server problem seems to have removed some posts from the site, including Tuesday's inflation figures, Monday's GDP revisions and a link to Sunday's piece: Lord Break Up the Euro But Not Yet. Apologies.
