62 years of economic data in chart form showing % change year to year. It's always a ball buster to put info into long term chart format using the same format. It gives you a clear picture of where we have been and of course you get to guess where we are going..
I suppose you could interpret some of this data to indicate that we are in some kind of recovery you probably are not right.. While some data is trending upwards it's a long way from hell to heaven .
Given that unemployment (the real one 22%) has been realitivity unchanged in years you may have to look at other reasons the charts might be a little skewed (not on purpose) just that you use certain inputs to your formulas and they can give you a false picture.
Anyway take a look , tis an interesting array of charts (you have to be a chart freak to enjoy ) perhaps, in that case I plead guilty.
