Obama Outperforms Reagan on Jobs, Growth and Investing

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) today issued America’s latest jobs report covering August. And it’s a disappointment. The economy created an additional 142,000 jobs last month. After 6 consecutive months over 200,000, most pundits expected the string to continue, including ADP which just yesterday said 204,000 jobs were created in August.

One month variation does not change a trend

Even though the plus-200k monthly string was broken (unless revised upward at a future date,) unemployment did continue to decline and is now reported at only 6.1%. Jobless claims were just over 300k; lowest since 2007. Despite the lower than expected August jobs number, America will create about 2.5 million new jobs in 2014.

And that is great news.

Back in May, 2013 (15 months ago) the Dow was out of its recession doldrums and hitting new highs. I asked readers if Obama could, economically, be the best modern President? Through discussion of that question, the #1 issue raised by readers was whether the stock market was a good economic barometer for judging “best.” Many complained that the measure they were watching was jobs – and that too many people were still looking for work.

To put this week’s jobs report in economic perspective I reached out to Bob Deitrick, CEO of Polaris Financial Partners and author of “Bulls, Bears and the Ballot Box” (which I profiled in October, 2012 just before the election) for some explanation. Since then Polaris’ investor newsletters have consistently been the best predictor of economic performance. Better than all the major investment houses.

This is the best private sector jobs creation performance in American history

Unemployment Reagan v Obama – “President Reagan has long been considered the best modern economic President. So we compared his performance dealing with the oil-induced recession of the 1980s with that of President Obama and his performance during this ‘Great Recession.’



As this unemployment chart shows, President Obama’s job creation kept unemployment from peaking at as high a level as President Reagan, and promoted people into the workforce faster than President Reagan.

President Obama has achieved a 6.1% unemployment rate in his 6th year, fully one year faster than President Reagan did. At this point in his presidency, President Reagan was still struggling with 7.1% unemployment, and he did not reach into the mid-low 6% range for another full year. So, despite today’s number, the Obama administration has still done considerably better at job creating and reducing unemployment than did the Reagan administration.

We forecast unemployment will fall to around 5.4% by summer, 2015. A rate President Reagan was unable to achieve during his two terms.”

What about the Labor Participation Rate?

Much has been made about the poor results of the labor participation rate, which has shown more stubborn recalcitrance as this rate remains higher even as jobs have grown.

U3 v U6 1994-2014: “The labor participation rate adds in jobless part time workers and those in marginal work situations with those seeking full time work. This is not a “hidden” unemployment. It is a measure tracked since 1900 and called ‘U6.’ today by the BLS.



As this chart shows, the difference between reported unemployment and all unemployment – including those on the fringe of the workforce – has remained pretty constant since 1994.



Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics – Databases, Tables and Calculators by Subject

Labor participation is affected much less by short-term job creation, and much more by long-term demographic trends. As this chart from the BLS shows, as the Baby Boomers entered the workforce and societal acceptance of women working changed, labor participation grew.

Now that ‘Boomers’ are retiring we are seeing the percentage of those seeking employment decline. This has nothing to do with job availability, and everything to do with a highly predictable aging demographic.

What’s now clear is that the Obama administration policies have outperformed the Reagan administration policies for job creation and unemployment reduction. Even though Reagan had the benefit of a growing Boomer class to ignite economic growth, while Obama has been forced to deal with a retiring workforce developing special needs. During the 8 years preceding Obama there was a net reduction in jobs in America. We now are rapidly moving toward higher, sustainable jobs growth.”

Economic growth, including manufacturing, is driving jobs

When President Obama took office America was gripped in an offshoring boom, started years earlier, pushing jobs to the developing world. Manufacturing was declining in America, and plants were closing across the nation.

This week the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) released its manufacturing report, and it surprised nearly everyone. The latest Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) scored 59, 2 points higher than July and about that much higher than prognosticators expected. This represents 63 straight months of economic expansion, and 25 consecutive months of manufacturing expansion.

New orders were up 3.3 points to 66.7, with 15 consecutive months of improvement and reaching the highest level since April, 2004 – 5 years prior to Obama becoming President. Not surprisingly, this economic growth provided for 14 consecutive months of improvement in the employment index. Meaning that the “grass roots” economy made its turn for the better just as the DJIA was reaching those highs back in 2013 – demonstrating that index is still the leading indicator for jobs that it has famously always been.

As the last 15 months have proven, jobs and economy are improving, and investors are benefiting

The stock market has converted the long-term growth in jobs and GDP into additional gains for investors. Recently the S&P has crested 2,000 – reaching new all time highs. Gains made by investors earlier in the Obama administration have further grown, helping businesses raise capital and improving the nest eggs of almost all Americans. And laying the foundation for recent, and prolonged job growth.

Investment Returns Reagan v Obama: While most Americans think they are not involved with the stock market, truthfully they are. Via their 401K, pension plan and employer savings accounts 2/3 of Americans have a clear vested interest in stock performance.



As this chart shows, over the first 67 months of their presidencies there is a clear “winner” from an investor’s viewpoint. A dollar invested when Reagan assumed the presidency would have yielded a staggering 190% return. Such returns were unheard of prior to his leadership.

However, it is undeniable that President Obama has surpassed the previous president. Investors have gained a remarkable 220% over the last 5.5 years! This level of investor growth is unprecedented by any administration, and has proven quite beneficial for everyone.

In 2009, with pension funds underfunded and most private retirement accounts savaged by the financial meltdown and Wall Street losses, Boomers and Seniors were resigned to never retiring. The nest egg appeared gone, leaving the ‘chickens’ to keep working. But now that the coffers have been reloaded increasingly people age 55 – 70 are happily discovering they can quit their old jobs and spend time with family, relax, enjoy hobbies or start new at-home businesses from their laptops or tablets. It is due to a skyrocketing stock market that people can now pursue these dreams and reduce the labor participation rates for ‘better pastures.”

Where myth meets reality

There is another election in just 8 weeks. Statistics will be bandied about. Monthly data points will be hotly contested. There will be a lot of rhetoric by candidates on all sides. But, understanding the prevailing trends is critical. Recognizing that first the economy, then the stock market and now jobs are all trending upward is important – even as all 3 measures will have short-term disappointments.

There are a lot of reasons voters elect a candidate. Jobs and the economy are just one category of factors. But, for those who place a high priority on jobs, economic performance and the markets the data clearly demonstrates which presidential administration has performed best. And shows a very clear trend one can expect to continue into 2015.

Economically, President Obama’s administration has outperformed President Reagan’s in all commonly watched categories. Simultaneously the current administration has reduced the deficit, which skyrocketed under Reagan. Additionally, Obama has reduced federal employment, which grew under Reagan (especially when including military personnel,) and truly delivered a “smaller government.” Additionally, the current administration has kept inflation low, even during extreme international upheaval, failure of foreign economies (Greece) and a dramatic slowdown in the European economy.

Facts and metrics are one thing, and how a person feels is another. Are they to be really commingled to make a point? There are many things in life that go into how a person feels - many of which are subjective.

If a person has a networth of say - 5 million dollars, but doesn't feel good about that, than that's all that matters, and that trumps the accuracy of the charts displayed in this thread? Is it because the person has medical issues, or is it because the person feels 5 million is not enough & that he or she would need 50 million to feel better, and that is what matters?

Things still suck economically for millions upon millions, regardless of Obama's skin color. If that wasn't the case, I doubt Gallup would have shown him at 38% approval on 9/5/14. They aren't feeling this super economic performance in their own lives, not enough of them. Sorry, but charts and graphs won't fix that.

It is an amazing accomplishment when you consider one political party hates governing and refuses to participate in the governing process and decided to obstruct every initiative Obama set forth from the very beginning. No alternative jobs bill from the regressives was brought forward to the American Jobs Act which they refuse to support and would have put millions to work on roads, bridges, infrastructure. Further more they held the country hostage with their ridiculous government shutdown and then wouldn't agree to end it unless the open unfilled federal government jobs budget was cut down to the bone.

No other president has ever had to deal with one side utterly refusing to govern and do what is right for the majority because they hate the president more than they love their country. It truly is unpecedented in our history.

1. The Senate killed that bill twice in a two week period. Couldn't even get enough votes to proceed to the floor.

2. Majority of what? Once again Republicans currently holding office most likely held on to their seats/won elections by pledging to reign in Obama.

It might be more accurate to say they love their constituents more than they love Obama. And now you're mad at them for keeping campaign promises? But wouldn't they have been punished already? Certainly not in 2010. We'll see if they if the voters punish them for opposing the President in 2012. I wouldn't count on it, but you never know.

Neither will the Republicans Alloak. They are not the party of the poor.

I almost spit out my coffee when you commented about this being the worst recovery in the history of the world. It might be slow but it is still recovery. Recovery from 8 years of a Republican Executive Administration.

I know, I know... there was a Democrat majority... Clinton is the real reason that George W. Bush was the worst President in the history of the world... blah, blah, blah.

George Bush, when it comes to America, screwed the pooch. Obama sure as hell ain't no savior, but he did pull our head out of the toilet without any help from the Republicans in Congress. It is obvious the Republicans hate Obama more than they love America. In my book letting the country suffer because you hate the executive is akin to treason. The founders did not envision a term in Congress as an opportunity to get rich.

I have just as much animus for Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. My feeling is that anyone who has sat in Congress for more than 8 years is a wretched liar and thief. Even if they think they have just accepted the soft deceit and graft of influence peddling.

There is no way the low information Republican voters will not reward the incumbents who continually support the wealthy of the poor. You know why? Because they are low information voters who have been bamboozled into voting against their interests.

What specifically has your Representative or Senator done that actually improved your life Alloak? If you have some specifics I would understand re-electing them. If they have not improved your life why wouldn't you fire them?

The gov’t shutdown was created by Obama and the democrats when they demanded a huge increase in the national debt. And to get it, agreed with The Republican requirement that the democrats out of control spending be curtailed.
The effects of the sequester were entirely inflicted by Obama and the democrats with such things as shutting down The WWII Memorial and preventing WWII veterans for visiting it.

Obama and the democrats ran to the TV cameras and said the “The Republican’s sequester would cost hundreds of thousands of American jobs. The actual number of jobs lost was one according to Obama’s dept. of labor.

What is unprecedented is Obama’s obsession for big government and total control over the people. The socialists dream.
No other president has had to deal with that because no other president is that stupid.

For the first two years of the Obama failed presidency, he had total control of the administration and the congress.
He ignored the recession, failed to get a comprehensive immigration bill passed as he promised ho would do in his first two years, push through Obamacare that he had to repeatedly lie to the American People about and had to grant waiver’s just to get his own party to vote for.

No wonder The American People threw Pelosi out of her speaker of the house position and suffered the largest turnover in Congress by political party in 74 years.

Next up: Harry Reid loses his total control of the senate and The American People will install The Republican Party as the majority just like they did in 2010 for The House.

It doesn't matter what happens, good or bad. There is nothing this administration can do to win over the right wingers. I don't expect a conservative to all of a sudden subscribe to his policies simply because of some good news, but it's a sad state of affairs when so many people choose to believe absurdity in order to justify a deep seeded hatred that a black man is our President. I have much more respect for those who come out and say it because at least they are smart enough to understand why they hate him. I loathe the people who continue to bash him for the most absurd reasons, and refuse to acknowledge these absurdities, and refuse to consider that the hatred probably stems from something other than politics.

I was at a family function over the weekend. I'm the only liberal among 20 relatives and inlaws. It was almost as if they were intentionally trying to parody themselves.... It was one cliche talking point after another. "He's not a leader, he doesn't have experience, his foreign policy is a joke, the world leaders don't respect him, his low info voters are confused", blah, blah, blah. They even said that the ISIS beheadings are his fault. It's repugnant to blame such atrocities on any American. As if ISIS would never exist if Romney and Ryan were in office. Their sheer intimidation would've stopped them for sure. Of course, in typical conservative fashion, they offered no alternative solution. They apparently just needed to vent at having a black President. And spare me the BS about supporting some no-name black conservative that would vote for, as if that's some type of proof that your hatred for Obama is not about race. That's like the good ole line "I'm not racist. I know one and I like him a lot. It's the millions of others that aren't like him that I hate." There are many levels of racism. Someone who crosses the street if they see a black man in a hoodie doesn't make them a racist, but the action has elements of racism in it. And the passionate offense taken by the right when race is mentioned only points out that we most likely struck a nerve, hence the deep offense. The truth hurts.

The American People are against Obama because of his policies, not because of the color of his skin.

The liberals have been playing the race card every time the cannot justify Obama's failures as president.
You have never heard a Republican call him a racial slur. The liberals claim so but it doesn't happen.
Obama himself injected race into the campaign when in his speeches he repeatedly said "they don't like me because I don't look like them".

Racism is the tool of a weak mind and the liberals should stop using it to attack people.

Right wingers hate him, not the American people. And yes, you are correct. They don't hate Obama simply because of his skin color. But combine his skin color with a President who enhanced entitlements for "his folk", and creating Obamacare to take from the rich and give more to his own folk, then there becomes a problem. If a white President did and said the exact same things, the right would still oppose it, but there wouldn't be this type of extreme hatred. Muleman, do you blame Obama for ISIS?

And I guess you didn't fully read my post. You can still be a racist without using racial slurs.

If it's not about race, then the hatred stems from something more than his policies. To blame him for Ukraine and ISIS is so beyond absurd, that it is not unreasonable to suggest race is behind it. No liberal has been hated this much.

I for one am caring less and less about what he says each day. He refuses to answer questions presented to him, and he is so full of blind hatred that if some kind of valid point was made it would be lost in the ridiculous right-wing talking point rhetoric.

Furthermore they held the country hostage with their ridiculous government shutdown and then wouldn't agree to end it unless the open unfilled federal government jobs budget was cut down to the bone.

The gov’t shutdown was created by Obama and the democrats when they demanded a huge increase in the national debt. And to get it, agreed with The Republican requirement that the democrats out of control spending be curtailed.
The effects of the sequester were entirely inflicted by Obama and the democrats with such things as shutting down The WWII Memorial and preventing WWII veterans for visiting it.

Obama and the democrats ran to the TV cameras and said the “The Republican’s sequester would cost hundreds of thousands of American jobs. The actual number of jobs lost was one according to Obama’s dept. of labor.

No other president has ever had to deal with one side utterly refusing to govern and do what is right for the majority because they hate the president more than they love their country. It truly is unpecedented in our history.

What is unprecedented is Obama’s obsession for big government and total control over the people. The socialists dream.
No other president has had to deal with that because no other president is that stupid.

For the first two years of the Obama failed presidency, he had total control of the administration and the congress.
He ignored the recession, failed to get a comprehensive immigration bill passed as he promised ho would do in his first two years, push through Obamacare that he had to repeatedly lie to the American People about and had to grant waiver’s just to get his own party to vote for.

No wonder The American People threw Pelosi out of her speaker of the house position and suffered the largest turnover in Congress by political party in 74 years.

Next up: Harry Reid loses his total control of the senate and The American People will install The Republican Party as the majority just like they did in 2010 for The House.

Substituting willful ignorance for reality and facts. That is some delusional thought process you have going there.

It is an amazing accomplishment when you consider one political party hates governing and refuses to participate in the governing process and decided to obstruct every initiative Obama set forth from the very beginning. No alternative jobs bill from the regressives was brought forward to the American Jobs Act which they refuse to support and would have put millions to work on roads, bridges, infrastructure. Further more they held the country hostage with their ridiculous government shutdown and then wouldn't agree to end it unless the open unfilled federal government jobs budget was cut down to the bone.

What a load.

The Representatives of The American People have a responsibility to do whatever they can to stop any president from doing anything to harm their nation. The Republican did their job while Obama and the democrats, with complete control of the administration and both houses of congress worked their corrupt political agenda.

If we made a list of his positive accomplishments, it wouldn't prove anything to you, and you know it.

Don't be afraid of the truth about yourself. It might be painful to admit and discover things about yourself at first, but it will set you free in the long run.

I'm starting to think the 1994 in his name refers to the year he was born.

Muleman is nothing more than an internet troll. I am no longer responding to his ignorant rants. The sad thing is there are some intelligent right wing posters who seemed to have stopped coming here since Muleman started his continual rants.
