Obamacare and Part Time Work

Menzie Chinn at Econbrowser and Spencer England at Angry Bear push back with some data.

I have been disappointed to see this idea of surging part time employment so readily accepted based on what looks like poor data.

I would have expected to see surging part time employment as much as the next person, and maybe it will if the law becomes fully implemented, but the data just doesn't support this yet.

  1. I was glancing over some of the older posts and I noticed this one. The essence seem silly. For the most part Obamacare's provisions hadn't kicked in enough to effect the economic data in September 2013. I think this data will probably look different in September of 2014 and even more so in September of 2015.
