Leftover sends this, a Wall Street Journal blog on the slow recovery that really isn’t much of a recovery for most people. From the blog post:
As was the case in 2014, when just 65 counties had fully recovered, most of those that bounced back are in states benefiting from the energy boom. Last year, 72 of the recovered counties were in Texas, the most of any state. Nebraska followed with 22. Minnesota, Kentucky, North Dakota, Montana and Kansas each had at least 10 fully recovered counties.
Here’s the study on which they blog is based.
