The Bender Data Page

Greetings investors. I have been out on the internet gathering data. I present some of that data in the charts below. It comes from this U.S. government site: http://www.bea.gov.national/

WARNING: The big caution is that the Fed does lie to us, but this is still the most comprehensive set of numbers available to me at short notice, so I have used it. I am particularly cautious about the Fed's definitions of terms and information gathering techniques. Nevertheless, I still think these numbers tell an interesting story, in part because they do come from the Fed. Please bear with me. This stuff takes time to gather, time to crunch, and time to build html charts for.
