Plus: Why the perfume market is expected to nearly double in size by 2025.

The U.S. economy grew close to 6 percent in 2021, the strongest year in nearly four decades. On this episode of Ones and Tooze, Adam Tooze and Cameron Abadi analyze how the United States has bounced back from the pandemic recession, and what ways the economy is still falling short. Spoiler: It’s more than inflation.

Also on this show, a Valentine’s Day special: Tooze and Abadi look into why perfume is booming and how the scent industry actually works.

About Ones and Tooze:  Foreign Policy economics columnist Adam Tooze, a history professor and a popular author, is encyclopedic about basically everything: from the COVID shutdown, to climate change, to pasta sauce. On our new podcast, Tooze and FP deputy editor Cameron Abadi will look at two data points each week that explain the world: one drawn from the week’s headlines and the other from just about anywhere else Tooze takes us.
