After President Obama doomed exports to stagnation with his ill-considered promise to double them within five years, it’s been saddening to watch them go nowhere, month after month after month. But the latest report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis had some good news: exports in November reached the 2nd-highest value since 2010.

Here’s what that looks like in graphical form:

Not hearing any applause so far, though.
