Good News

There hasn’t been a lot of good economic news lately… but this is definitely a bright spot. The Department of Labor says productivity rose at a 2.2% annual rate in the second quarter of the year. Productivity has remained strong during the downturn, which is one reason why I don’t buy the inflation-is-taking-off argument.
