Jobless Claims Fall to Lowest Level in 49 1/2 Years

I thought Trump was going to destroy the US economy if he didn't follow Bush's policies (which got us an anemic growth rate and flatline wage growth), strong-form archlibertarianism that no one has ever voted in favor of, and warmed-over Nostalgia Economics.

The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits fell to more than a 49-1/2-year low last week.

The data pointed to sustained strength in the economy.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped to 192,000 for the week ended April 13, the lowest level since September 1969, the Labor Department said.
