They note that what went on economically, immediately following that August 2007 print, was not especially fun.

One dimension worth considering is the fact that Labor Force Participation is still much lower than is typical at this stage in an expansion. Wage growth, while good, is also not great yet. This leaves room for the economic recovery to continue beneath the surface, even while the headline unemployment rate doesn’t drop much lower than where it is today – which is pretty low.
