Advertisers’ Dilemma: Figuring Out How to Target Millennials, Now the Largest Demographic

wt., 10/10/2017 - 07:13

Millennials are now the largest age group but retailers and advertisers in general haven’t quite figured out how to reach them.

Millennials are not as interested in drills, machine shop workbenches, gardening, and any number of do-it-yourself items as their boomer parents.

Why should they be? Home ownership is far lower and their boomer parents did not have mountains of student debt. So what’s an advertiser to do?

Jobs Down 33K, Employment Up 906K, Full-Time Employment Down 65,000

pt., 06/10/2017 - 16:07

Initial Reaction

Today’s establishment survey shows jobs declined by 33,000.

The way the BLS accumulates household survey stats leads to some seemingly-wild mathematical discrepancies.

Supposedly, employment rose by 906,000 (Table A).

Full-time employment (Table A-9) declined by 65,000 but part-time employment rose by only 81,000.

Of the 81,000 increase in part-time workers, those who are employed part-time for economic reasons (Once again Table A) declined by 133,000 and the number of voluntary part-time workers declined by 436,000.

None of this ever adds up, but the BLS says it’s not supposed to. This month was particularly wild.

Puerto Rico Bonds Collapse to 36 Cents on Dollar following Trump Comments

śr., 04/10/2017 - 17:52

Puerto Rico general obligation bonds fell to 36 cents on the dollar after Trump told Fox News on Tuesday night that Puerto Rico’s debt will have to be wiped out.

Looking back, bonds prices started the collapse in 2014, well before Trump comments and well before hurricanes.

Puerto Rico borrowed billions of dollars, more than any state in the US except California and New York for energy infrastructure, but the money did not shore up its aging infrastructure.

Where did the money go?
