Romer on jobs: 'Long way to go'

3:13 PM ET Fri, 6 Sept 2013

Less than expected jobs numbers were released today for August adding 169,000 jobs. Christina Romer, Council of Economic Advisers former chair, explains why she feels we need to move a lot faster than that to repair the labor market. The number is "not anything to crow about" she says. She also explains her support for Janet Yellen as Fed chair.
