* I should have mentioned the proper context. Tom Blumer cited three instances in total (including the present economic boom) where the US economy has had a streak of more than 7 quarters of 3.0%+ GDP growth. Thanks for the comment, Tom.
Though, it would be nice, in a few quarters, to have that statement be true without the asterisk.
