The Numbers Game

Here’s a pilot for a new project I’ve started–a chartcast–a visual discussion of charts and data. This first episode is a conversation with John Taylor on the economic recovery and how it compares to past recoveries. If you go to the description at YouTube you’ll find links to the data that are used in the charts.

I’d love your reaction in the comments either here or at YouTube. Is it interesting? Did you learn anything? Did you like it? Hate it? This is our first one so there’s lots to work on.

This was recorded in mid-July–it has taken a while to get it into shape. Unfortunately, it’s as timely now as it was then–the recovery is still lackluster. Thanks go to Shana Farley and Chris Dauer at the Hoover Institution for their help, particularly Shana who has done the heavy lifting of making it look the way it does.
