Mass incarceration is making the Federal Reserve’s job harder

Arrests, convictions and prison sentences are among the factors holding back the job market and complicating the central bank’s calculations.


Most interesting part IMO, is some unpublished data from University of Georgia and University of Minnesota researchers offering estimates for # of U.S adults with a felony. Really underscores the need for employment nondiscrimination practices to be in some, intelligently extended to those with felony backgrounds. Certainly a critical issue of comprehensive corrections reform.
