    • Investing

This episode is sponsored by Nexo.io, Chainalysis, FTX US and NEAR.
 
Last week, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 528,000 U.S. jobs were added in July. This was nearly double economists’ estimates. The Biden administration used the report as evidence that there is no recession. On today’s episode, NLW digs into why that headline number may be as obfuscating as it is revealing.
