Coronavirus lockdown measures have brought us economic straights in parts of this country like we have not seen since the Great Depression. But as businesses begin to get back to work, it looks as if we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. What we would typically look for in our efforts to judge the health of the economy would be the unemployment rate.

President Joe Biden made his first big overseas trip recently when he joined other world leaders and allies for the G7 Summit.
