This final note today, an observation or two about our through-line this week, riffing off the live show we’re taking on tour this summer and fall, How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Numbers.
There is, in fact, a whole lot to worry about with economic numbers. One, they can be really boring. Two, they can be cherry picked to suit one side or the other. And three, there are just so many of ’em that it can really make your head spin.
But they matter. They matter a lot.
So you kind of have to learn to love ’em.
