Best of the Web: 14-02-25, nr 944

Good morning. After June 2007, the laughter stopped. Or someone else started to write the transcripts… 🙂

Interesting chart for sure: Emerging deficit countries rule the waves!

Cool chart on the pound/dollar exchange rate. There must be a longer history though

CAPEX spending in the US broken down by sector

If you are ever going to read a book about GDP, this looks like a good option: ‘GDP: A Brief But Affectionate History’

Beating expectations is the name of the game: can Abenomics deliver?

Art or science? Given that these are Shiller PE’s it should be remembered that the 2014 include the great 2007 profit slump

“Half of the U.S. Farmland being eyed by Private Equity” Oh, really?

Looks like an old chart, but the message is clear
