Is the economy good? Wolfers says yes

February 3, 2023 Vox

Justin Wolfers, Vox: "If you want a dramatic one-word answer, the answer is yes. Unemployment’s at a 50-year low, that’s the standard metric for thinking about how the economy is performing. Job growth is continuing, so it’s not only good, it’s getting better, and it’s getting better at a really rapid rate. In 2022, we added the second-most jobs in recorded history, all the way back to 1939."
