Menzie Chinn and James Hamilton at Econbrowser keep on impressing with some really useful, insightful charts and empirical analysis of the current and projected economic situation.
For example: graphs here of the components of GDP (consumption, non-residential and residential investment) and their performance during the current and previous recessions. Or this chart of log-graphed GDP growth over the last 141 years.
Hamilton occasionally reveals some political opinions which distract me from the economics, but I guess we all do that from time to time. Blogs are always just a bit self-indulgent.
