Don’t take the strong economy for granted

I have written before that the economy tends to be newsworthy only when things are going badly. It is also true that it generally ranks lower down people’s concerns when performing well, as opposed to being the top political concern when we are in recession. It is only natural to be less worried about the economy when things are going well but we should never lose sight that our economy underpins everything, especially employment and the provision of public services.
