Monday Morning Optimism: 5/15/23
Happy Mother's Day
Welcome to our Monday Morning Optimism series. To start each week, we’ll send you an economic trend/fact/idea that shows how some aspect of the economy (or world) has improved over time.
The employment to population ratio for prime age women (25-54 years old, despite what Don Lemon might tell you) reached a record high of 75.1% in April, surpassing the previous high set in April 2000.
If you want to read more about how well women are doing in this economy, we wrote a longer post about it back in March.
Week in Review (for paying subscribers) will go out this coming Friday, and every other Friday too. We’re also working on a set of dueling posts where I make the case we won’t have a recession in the next twelve months and Anirban argues the opposite.
