In the September 2009 edition of his economic newsletter, Tea Leaf, Jeff Thredgold shares a lot of good news.
In fact, over 40 bullet points of things to celebrate from 2008 and 2009 covering the gamet from crime reduction, health improvement, productivity, charitable giving…the works!
Read the list and I promise you’ll be feeling better by the end.
One of my favorites:
• Men’s contribution to housework has doubled over the past 40 years, while their time spent on child care has tripled
My inner skeptic immediately wondered how much they were helping in 1969. Does doubling that much amount to much? Sorry, guys, just wondering. ‘-)
BTW…Jeff is one of the two economists I follow regularly. Plain talk. Makes sense.
So, what is your good news!
