The U.S. stock market is building on record highs, the housing and automotive markets continue to recover, the banking industry has stabilized, gross domestic product continues to grow, the unemployment rate is falling and new jobs are being added every month.
Meanwhile, inflation and interest rates remain low. The U.S. economy has added jobs in 39 consecutive months, creating 6.9 million jobs over that time.
Yet, few of us are in a celebratory mood. BizTimes executive editor Steve Jagler will provide analysis of this “joyless recovery” in a television interview on UpFront With Mike Gousha to be broadcast on WISN-Channel 12 on Sunday at 9 a.m. and 11:05 p.m.
