Charts don't cure boredom they start political talks which generate boredom.

I'm not so fond of people who have such one-dimensional analysis as to think that Bush single-handedly caused the housing crisis and destroyed the economy.

Well that`s pretty much what the right has always accused Obama of, so I guess what`s good for the goose is good for the gander.

Seriously? We're talking about the inevitable bubble here.

That`s not necessarily accurate. The commission appointed to analyze the causes of the crisis found that "the crisis was avoidable and was caused by: Widespread failures in financial regulation, including the Federal Reserve’s failure to stem the tide of toxic mortgages; Dramatic breakdowns in corporate governance including too many financial firms acting recklessly and taking on too much risk; An explosive mix of excessive borrowing and risk by households and Wall Street that put the financial system on a collision course with crisis; Key policy makers ill prepared for the crisis, lacking a full understanding of the financial system they oversaw; and systemic breaches in accountability and ethics at all levels."

And I must say, I'm not so fond of people who have such one-dimensional analysis as to think that Bush single-handedly caused the housing crisis and destroyed the economy. Surely, I am no fan of him. I am a fan of intellectual honesty, however.

You really think that the housing crisis would not have happened if John Kerry had got elected??? Seriously? We`re talking about the inevitable bubble here. The one that arose from the ashes of the previous dot.com bubble. Right, we would`ve been booming if John Kerry got elected. Europe would be stellar. No wars, either. Totally.

tedgp, it's debt of gdp. That means that you can incure more debt, but the ratio doesn`t have to increase if the economy is growing.


As for the whole Obama "two wars" thing, this is the weirdest thing I hear. We have 16.5 trillion now. If we take all the Iraq war money away, we would be 15.7 trillion in debt. Moreover, basically all that money was spent before Obama. I`m telling you honestly, you all focus a little too much on that one spending item that was, yes, a bad idea.

But all in all, this graph tells a great story. However, not very much by itself. Still, how is it not interesting? This is just raw, statistical data. It has no bias.
