You Too Can Blog Like Paul Krugman

Ever wonder where Krugman gets all the graphs he posts from? The answer seems to be St. Louis Fed: FRED Graph where you too can create graphs of tons of economic data.

Update: Krugman lists some more sources: Data Notes

Awesome link. Now we have to get started picking out interesting data and graphing it and coming up with a powerful, conventional wisdom busting insight based on the data.

Yes, super link. I went on and created a simple graph on duration of unemployment in less than a minute. I was surprised to see that 2010 has seen an unprecedented (back to 1950) high in unemployment duration.
See chart.

That is a great graph Kim. Clearly Obama's policies have failed ;)
