USAToday Economic Outlook Index

11 Jun 2009

USA Today and IHS Global Insight have created a new USA economic outlook index based on 11 “leading” indicators. The interactive charts are very well done, with roll-over data point info, and an explanation of what each indicator means. Notes at the bottom of the page describe how the methodology differs from the Conference Board’s “leading indicators”. They plan to update it monthly. USAtoday has come a long way from the crappy charts they used to produce (ok, a lot of them are still crappy – but this one’s damn good).


(note: I spotted this one because Utah has crappy newspapers and my only option for any actual news of the world was USAToday)
