Fascinating time-line of US economic cycles. Someone should make a wall chart out of this – I would buy a copy. (via St Louis Fed and The Big Picture)

A nice companion piece perhaps is Irving Fisher’s 1932 “Booms and Depressions: Some First Principles“:

Chart of ‘Booms & Busts’ ends in 1944. We need someone to extend it to now. Obviously someone who does not mind showing actual economic trends under Reagan, Clinton, Bush Jr. which many people seem to want to wish away.
