Keeping Score

Dont let short term movements in the stock market fool you–this recession is far from over.  And when it does end it will have set some records.

Want to do your own scoring on the current recession (which started December 2007)?

Well the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis makes it pretty easy.  (Thanks to Cliff Bekar for the heads up on the site.)  It has nice color charts that let you “compare output and employment changes during the present recession with the same data for the 10 previous recessions that have occurred since 1946.”  And they keep updating it.

Check it out here.
