Uma sucinta revisão macro ilustrada da economia americana em 2010 (aqui):
The year is coming to a close, which inspires looking at recent history for some perspective on the year ahead. The past is hardly a flawless window into the future, but it’s a good place to start for considering the possibilities for 2011. The following charts, courtesy of the economics database at the St. Louis Fed, summarize some of the key macro trends over the past year.
The basic message in the graphs below: the economy is on the mend, but it’s a precarious rebound. The main challenges: job growth is still tepid and the housing market continues to suffer. Elsewhere, the economy is showing signs of improvement. But the struggle between growth and contraction rolls on. The forces of expansion have the upper hand these days, but only marginally so. More of the same is expected for 2011.
