Update: Economic Indicators Dashboard

In: Employment Housing Updated regularly US Economy

25 Jan 2013

One of my favorite economic dashboards. It highlights major macro indicators, what direction they are trending, what the typical ranges are, and lets you drill down to explanations of why you should care. Looks like a lot of indicators are finally in the “typical” range.

Things might be getting back to normal.

That one is originally from 2009. So much about back to normal…

Right next to that it says “Updated: Monthly”.

This stuff is mostly pretty lame, I’d spend the next hour taking you through the details, but I have some more important things to get done this afternoon starting with cleaning the lint out of the dryer.

But just as an easy example, go to page 7 where they explain their criteria for the Mortgage Delinquencies chart. Your eyeballs alone should be telling you that there is some agenda here be it political, or more likely a simple too for providing sufficient comfort to the sheep in order to ease the way toward separating them from some fees.

Useless drivel.
