In the third quarter of 2016, the Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP), increased by 2.9%. That's about double the increase in the second quarter! https://www.bea.gov/newsreleases/national/gdp/gdphighlights.pdf
But, there is even more good economic news. The unemployment rate has been at or below 5% for 12 consecutive months. That's an entire year! http://data.bls.gov/pdq/SurveyOutputServlet
And this is true even though more Americans have been entering the labor force since the employment picture has improved.
