Georgia Tech Sam Nunn School of International Affairs Professor of Practice Dennis Lockhart wrote “10 Years in and the Economic Recovery Keeps Chugging Along" in The Hill, May 13.
"This summer the U.S. economy will achieve a noteworthy milestone: 10 years of growth. According to official GDP reports, our economy has been expanding since the summer of 2009.
The pace of growth was quite modest for several years after 2009 but has recently picked up. Barring a sharp downturn, the expansion will very likely set the record for the longest in U.S. history."
