Low unemployment? Check. Low inflation? Check A second term for Janet Yellen? https://t.co/dvMfBbXGYH
Retweeted by David LeonhardtI'd be surprised if Trump chose Yellen, but not shocked. It'd be the savvy move for his own sake. https://t.co/1APHGiJpaU @JBuchdahl @mattbai @nytimes With their payroll, it's only news when they don't win. @jeremybowers There's always today.Nice stock market you've got there.... https://t.co/Ja54TOUX5K14.

Retweeted by David Leonhardt @edfischman I'll respectfully dissent. GDP pays for food, shelter, education and health. Over centuries, many have died for lack of it. @stoweboyd @jbenton Fixed. Thank you. @pashulman Check out the late 1930s, though. @pulledbackhigh5 Column notes that, but also check out late 1930s boom. (Also, thanks on 1929/2009. That's fixed.)Our post-crisis recovery is on the verge of being weaker -- a decade-plus later -- than the post-Depression recovery.https://t.co/ci3AymSsBw @jbenton Thank you.
