Krueger on Jobs Report, Sequestration, Health Care
Aug. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Alan Krueger, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, talks about the July U.S. employment report, the impact of sequestration-related budget cuts on the economy and the Affordable Care Act.
The 162,000 increase in payrolls last month was the smallest in four months and followed a revised 188,000 rise in June that was less than initially estimated, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington.
