Good news for the American economy was released today by the U.S. Census Bureau, revealing a record breaking median household income for Americans. In 2016 (the last year studied), American household median income amounted to $59,039; a slight uptick from the previous record of $58,655 set in 1999 (the figures are adjusted for inflation). Take a look at some of the highlights from that report.

President Trump rode a wave of populism into the White House base on the economic and political discontent of many Americans; particularly in the white working-class. The stock market exploded immediately following his election victory and it looks like that growth is already improving the wages of … well … everyone. What do you think? Will this trend continue? Does the president have anything at all to do with this economic success? Let us know on Facebook or in the comments below.
