Our Economic Ruination (Now In Animated Form!)

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Note to anyone blaming President Obama for the recession: Watch this animated map of job growth and loss from 2004 to 2010. The job losses begin to bloom way back in early 2008.

Other items to watch:
  • Katrina
  • Detroit as the auto industry crashes
  • New York as the Wall Street bubble swells
When late 2008 arrives, the animation goes from fascinating to heartbreaking.
