NYT: Good Jobs Numbers

You have to love this headline from the New York Times: We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are
The real question in analyzing the May jobs numbers released Friday is whether there are enough synonyms for “good” in an online thesaurus to describe them adequately.

So, for example, “splendid” and “excellent” fit the bill. Those are the kinds of terms that are appropriate when the United States economy adds 223,000 jobs in a month, despite being nine years into an expansion, and when the unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent, a new 18-year low.

This is the reality of America with President Trump at the helm.
