This week makes us heart the economy a little more than working moms heart Gwyneth Paltrow. That’s not really comparing apples to apples, though. No pun intended, Apple Paltrow-Martin. So sweet!
We received our first bit of sweet news on Tuesday when the Institute of Supply Management Index reported an increase to 53.7 in March from 53.2 in February. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, a score above 50 suggests expansion of the economy. An increase of 0.5 is small apples, but we’ll take ‘em.
