White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow said a government report due Thursday will show a “very large increase” in the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits, without giving a specific number.

“I’m not at liberty to say” whether the number is in the millions, Kudlow said Wednesday in an interview with Fox News Channel. “But it’s going to be a very big increase -- everybody in the market knows that.”
