The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that there were 287,000 newly created jobs last month–that’s over 100,000 over the expected number.  At the same time, the Unemployment Rate jumps up two notches to 4.9% and the Labor Participation Rate ticked up to 62.7%.  The report made everybody happy, and the prices of both stocks and bonds rose on dreams for a brighter, government-sponsored tomorrow.

I don’t know what the future holds, but I know that right now is a great time to get a better loan than the one that you currently have.
