WA jobless rate falls to 4.5% in April

The drop in Western Australia's jobless rate is not cause for celebration just yet with Premier Colin Barnett saying the state is not out of the woods while economists are treating it as a "rogue" number.

So all the gurus now reckon the April figures were wrong/at odds/variance - because it proves all of their predictions wrong. Irrespective of what happens in coming months, fact of the matter is there was a drop in the jobless figure after eight months and much as it is inconvenient to all the gurus, one never hears the figures are wrong when the figures follow the predictions!! It's high time all these gurus - who never saw the current crisis coming anyhow and believed in the supercycle boom - accept the fact that they could be wrong some time.
