What better way to start a new decade than to acknowledge the successes of the past? Kelly Collins and Bruce Larsen look at 21 of the best trends to come out of the past ten years.
Income is up, child mortality is down. Cancer mortality rates have seen a decline, along with diagnoses of HIV.
We don’t want to reveal ALL of the trends before you listen to the podcast, so here’s the last one (please don’t “bee” upset with the spoiler): Honeybee populations are also on the rise.
 Did you know that pecan trees (and many other flowers and plants) can’t survive without bees? No bees, no crops. No crops, no farmers. It’s easy to overlook the link between one situation and our own financial well-being, but the link is there none the less.
 These 21 trends all impact our economic well-being, albeit some have a more direct influence than others. Kelly and Bruce explain what the trends are and why they deserve recognition.
