President Obama’s Legacy In 9 Simple Charts From The Federal Reserve. by The Elephant's Child

Take your time, read the small print. The nine charts do not, of course cover everything. There’s still the Iran Deal, the mess in Syria, the Taliban’s success in Afghanistan, excessive regulation. It would be easy to chart another nine, and then another. But it is a start on an all too real record. Some Legacy!

ADDENDUM: I don’t usually go back and add to previous posts, particularly those from several years ago. The date that the post was written is at the top. This one was written in September of 2015, during the campaign for the 2016 election. The data are from many different federal offices, mostly Commerce, listed on the second line at the top of each chart. There are 12 Federal Reserve districts, each with a Federal Reserve Bank. If I make mistakes, I will struggle to set them right, and I try to check the data carefully.  Unfortunately this is indeed the record of Barack Obama.

Great faked graphics w/ phony data … The real Federal Reserve charts appear at the Federal Reserve of St. Louis website


Comment by Carlene Hill Byron

You apparently did not notice that the post was from 2015, over a year ago, and I don’t know how current the charts were then. Your link, also to the St. Louis Fed, isn’t even on the same subject, and irrelevant. Sloppy.


Comment by The Elephant's Child

Methinks the Elephant doth protest too much. I’ll take “sloppy” over intentional deception any day.


Comment by Carlene Hill Byron

How about relevant, Ms. Byron? The charts you linked to were graphing entirely different data. As for your claim of “intentional deception”, I can only assume you have proof.
