Dan:

This is absolutely priceless and reinforces the power of simple pictures. It's also a bit sad to see how far we've fallen in Eight years. I'd like to show this to a friend who said then that it doesn't matter who's president. Really?

"The prices of everything went up (at a far greater pace than inflation):"

Isn't the definition of inflation the rate at which the prices of everything go up?

Showing the Y axis pointing down was so appropriate for many of these statistics, yet it is rarely done. It shows that you were really thinking about what the numbers meant, and it communicates with great impact.

I knew all of this was true, but seeing it SOOOO much better. Thanks, Dan!

rock on.

Try deducting the recession during the last quarter of Clinton and 1st Quarter of Bush. The recession caused by the "irrational exuberance" of the fake Internet bubble. Your #'s will look a lot more accurate.

Dan,

Do yourself the favor of sending this to both the Clinton's and the Obama campaign.

This deserves to go viral.

I cannot figure out for the life of me why these little doodles are so much more effective than the usual charts.
