WASHINGTON---The number of peo-
ple seeking US unemployment ben-
efits fell 10,000 last week to a sea-
sonally adjusted 311,000, the lowest
since late November and a hopeful
sign hiring could pick up.
The four-week average of applica-
tions, a less volatile measure, fell 9,500
to 317,750, the Labour Department said
yesterday. That is the fourth straight
drop and the lowest level in six months.
The sustained decline suggests com-
panies are confident enough about
future growth to keep their staffs. Appli-
cations are a proxy for layoffs. Greater
business confidence can also lead to
The four-week average is now near
its lowest level since October 2007, just
two months before the recession began.
It dropped to 305,000 in September,
but only because computer glitches in
California and other states artificially
lowered the figures.
About 3.3 million people received
benefits in the week ending March 8,
the latest data available. That was
43,000 fewer than the previous week.
The steady drop in applications has
made economists more optimistic about
hiring in March.
Several point out that applications
have fallen to a level that is consistent
with monthly job gains of more than
That would be a step up from Feb-
ruary, when employers added 175,000
positions. And even February s gain

two months of paltry hiring. Cold win-
NEW YORK---Bank of America
(BofA) and its former chief exec-
utive Ken Lewis have reached a
US$25 million deal to settle alle-
gations that Lewis and his execu-
tive team misled investors about
the impact of BofA s 2008 merger
with Merrill Lynch.
The settlement, announced by
New York Attorney General Eric
Schneiderman, also bars Lewis from
serving as an officer or director of
any public company for three years.
BofA bought Merrill in September
2008 at the height of the financial
crisis. BofA was seen as a saviour
of Merrill, which would have likely
filed for bankruptcy. But by the time
the deal was finalised in January
2009, Merrill s balance sheet had
deteriorated to the point that BofA
needed government help to keep
from failing. (AP)
Applications for US jobless aid dip

ter weather in January and Decem-
ber shut down factories, kept con-
sumers away from shops, and
reduced home sales. Employers
added 129,000 jobs in January and
only 84,000 in December.
The unemployment rate rose to
6.7 per cent last month. But the
tenth of a percentage point increase
happened, in part, for a positive
reason: more people entered the
job market to look for work.
Employers didn t immediately hire
most of them, causing the unem-
ployment rate to increase. But the
fact that they started job hunting
suggests they were optimistic
about their prospects. (AP)
