The US Federal budget: where is it all spent on? The second link is more useful for the 2014 budget


Much ado about those ECB wealth numbers that were published on Tuesday

Interesting chart on the US unemployment rate, except that I cannot find the various definitions or source…

Cool chart, but how many AAA companies (let alone bonds) are there…? And back in 1930?


This is supposed to be worrisome, but to be honest,I am not certain what I am looking at…
