ISM manufacturing fell while producer prices rose, as the planned-stagflation of the Biden regime continues on to the destruction of the American economy. New orders were especially weak.

Unemployment dropped but labor participation fell. So, as less people looked for work, less people were ‘unemployed’.
We continue to think economic data right now is essentially worthless as the Biden Administration can be trusted about as much as communist China.
