The Impact of Harvey

There’s been a lot of talk about the economic impact of Hurricane Harvey. Much of this we simply don’t know yet. This morning, we got one of our first looks. Notice the jump in initial jobless claims.

Jobless claims came in at 298,000. That’s enough to keep our sub-300,000 streak going. The last time jobless claims printed over 300,000 was in February 2015.
