Fisher Investments Releases New Video on the Unemployment Rate

Research shows economic growth creates new jobs, not the other way around.

Fisher Investments released a new video explaining the unemployment rate and what it actually means for the economy moving forward. The video is based on data compiled by the research staff that supports the Fisher Investments Institutional and Private Client Groups.

This informative video explains why the unemployment rate might not mean as much as many investors believe and why it doesn’t have predictive power on the future direction of markets. As the video details, the official unemployment rate is calculated in a way that makes it unclear what rate movements, up or down, actually mean for the economy. In fact, historical evidence shows that the unemployment rate actually peaks well after recessions end. Thus, economic growth begets new jobs, not the other way around.

Fisher Investments first began utilizing YouTube earlier this year as a way to expand the reach of its investment education efforts. “Fisher Investments is committed to providing ongoing education. YouTube is just another way for us to reach investors and students of the market,” says Vice President of Content Management Fabrizio Ornani. Through its YouTube channel, Fisher Investments showcases a number of videos, including recent updates on European banks and the US economic environment.
