business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Wall Street Journal reports that "food-stamp use rose 2.4% in the U.S. in May from a year earlier, with more than 15% of the U.S. population receiving benefits."

The good news is that the growth in food stamp usage has slowed since the depths of the recession. But the bad news is that usage continues to grow, despite the recovery that seems to be taking place.
