MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE ANOTHER SHUTDOWN: More jobs created than expected — 204,000 vs. 120,000. On the other hand, unemployment actually went up, from 7.2 to 7.3 percent. And the broader U6 unemployment rate, which includes discouraged workers, went up from 13.6 to 13.8 This is weird; watch for the revisions.
