Quick, unbiased view of the economy...

"Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts."        — Sherlock Holmes, A Scandal in Bohemia
Business Cycles

Using the mean of coorodinates (MoC), the 1991 - 2001, 2001 - 2007, and current business cycle have been plotted. The start point for each business cycle is the official end date of the recession, as determined by the National Bureau of Economic Research. For the current business cycle, both three-month and six-month MoC averages are shown. For later business cycles, only the six-month MoC average is shown. The MoC is the average of all the economic indicators for a particular period. The MoC signals the general health of the economy.

The most recent BaR Analysis Grid© can be seen on the home page(Thanks to Jim Cuppy for suggesting that the business cycle be displayed in this manner.)
