“In 2016, real median household income was $62,898, just $257 above its level in 1999. Over the next three years it grew almost $6,000, to $68,703.

Please read the article before commenting because I’m not in the mood for inane chirping about how this was somehow achieved by Obama’s weak economic team with a radically different policy.
Policy matters. This is why, for instance, Canada experienced the 2008 recession a lot more gently than we did. The only thing more pathetic than Obama’s economic policy was his foreign policy.
