Irish Economy: Bruton and politics of jobs numbers; How to add 50%
Irish Economy: Richard Bruton, jobs minister, on Thursday said in a statement that “70,000 jobs have been added across the economy in the past 18 months" -- this was a claim that on the face of it related to January 2013-June 2014 and it was curious that the ministerial mantra/ talking point: "5,000 jobs...being created every month," which had become defunct on May 26, was now stretched over 18 months. In addition the claimed number of jobs added is 50% above what the Central Statistics Office (CSO) raw data suggest.

Irish Economy: Today the Government gave itself an 85% mark on its quarterly jobs 'to do' list, which is down from mid-90s levels in the past that made it look like the result of a North Korean election. The morsel for the headlines today was the announcement of a National Health Innovation Hub which "will be a win-win for businesses." Meanwhile the statement by Richard Bruton, jobs minister, that “70,000 jobs have been added across the economy in the past 18 months," is not correct.
