Best in Economics this week: April 19

This was the week of the bombing of the Boston Marathon, the collapse of gold and Reinhart & Rogoff

Gold’s ‘collapse’ put into perspective…

…and even more perspective (although you can argue that the normal distribution does not apply for gold)

And then there was the Reinhart and Rogoff blooper…

Pretty shocking chart from the Dutch central bank showing the lack of potency for a rate cut…

Stocks may be expensive, but bonds are even more expensive…

Manic Monday. Well, at least until the 90s…

Some history on bull markets

Interesting study by the Fed into the impact of a rate hike for the bond yields

And another nice study from the Fed into the use of adequacy ratio’s for banks…

Beautiful visualisation of change through time: you just move the handle and see the change

Ah yes, and we should not forget the IMF outlook!

Interesting way of using Moore’s law to show that our DNA is older than earth itself…
