[OP-ED]: Should the Fed run the economy ‘hot’?

The recovery, though encouraging, is certainly no economic panacea. Mounting inequality remains a big issue. From 2000 to 2016, the best-paid 5 percent of men achieved a 30 percent wage increase, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data analyzed by Gould. For women, the comparable gain was 24 percent.

But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” The same might be said today of the American economic recovery. Progress, though real, is incomplete.

Para las mujeres, el avance equivalente fue del 24 por ciento.

Ni siquiera es el comienzo del final. Pero quizás sea el fin del comienzo.” Lo mismo podría decirse hoy sobre la recuperación económica norteamericana. El progreso, aunque real, es incompleto.
