Good news!

Good news!

August 09, 2022

Afterall, we can all use good news.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, and New Hampshire have all reported their lowest state unemployment rates IN HISTORY!  Wow!

Like me, you probably remember that the unemployment rates were scary during the pandemic, and it was all over the news.  Like me, you might also notice that the low unemployment rate is not in the news.  Why?  Because good news doesn't sell and, as I mentioned in a prior blog, good news also doesn't sound smart.

My point... if we're going to get worked up about high unemployment, we need to rejoice when unemployment is at all-time lows.  Or better yet, let's just try to remain even keel and take it all in stride.  A good financial plan works in any economy.
