January Jobs Number Very Positive — But Inflation Will Increase

Jobs report shows the economy is overheated.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released the jobs numbers for January 2022. To the surprise of most economists, 467,000 jobs were added. That’s much better than the 199,000 jobs added in December 2021. While that is good news, in general, it could spell trouble in the near future.
