Graphic insight from Econbrowser

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.
