Disturbing Charts (Update 40)
The following is the latest update of 10 charts that depict various aspects of the U.S. economic and financial situation.
I find these charts portray disturbing long-term trends. These trends have been in effect for years, even during the longest U.S. economic expansion that recently ended. [The June 8 NBER BCDC declaration of U.S. recession is described in the “Recession Declared For The United States By The NBER BCDC” post.]
These charts raise a lot of questions. As well, they highlight the “atypical” nature of our economic situation from a long-term historical perspective.
All of these charts are from the Federal Reserve, and represent the most recently updated data.
