Graphs on the US economy

The St. Louis Fed has a website delivering data series in the form of nice simple graphs that you can see almost everywhere now: newspapers, working papers, blogs. Below you can see an example: the Consumer Price Index (changes on a year ago, therefore inflation) and the effective Federal Funds Rate (the US interest rate).


  1. I have a question do u think the economy is begining to level off or is it getn worse where do u see us by the first of 2010

    • That depends. I am in the process of writing a piece on how we got into this and how we’ll get out. I don’t think that we can go back to business (growth) as usual without changing anything.
