The Graphical Economy Tool

Since the U.S. economy has been very turbulent for the past couple of months, I decided to create a tool that will give me a better insight than the speculative commentaries by wall street “analysts”.   Since the government has a huge census database on inflation, employment, wages, etc, I decided to utilize such data and create intuitive graphs to draw insights on the economy.

After a weekend of programming, I finished making The Graphical Economy.

The line graphs will display the time series data, making it easier to spot interesting trends.   You are all welcome to use it and give me feedback.  But please understand that it may contain bugs and data issues.

    You just saved me about 10 hours of manually reading in all those BLS files to get state quarterly unemployment. Thank you so much for doing this.
