Hey, here’s some excellent news about the economy (for once)


The Census Bureau announced in its annual report on income and poverty, one of the biggest annual declines in the number of people in the US living in poverty.

According to the report, the share of people in the US living in poverty dropped to 13.5% in 2015, from 14.8% in 2014.

It's good news, but it's important to keep things in perspective.

The report also suggested that the median income rose. The median household income was $56,500 last year, up a substantial 5.2% from $53,700 in 2014, after adjusting for inflation.
