Important Highlights from Today's Commentaries

 

Commentaries

If you are concerned about the growing disparity in the U.S. and other countries you really should look at an interesting inter-active map that enables you to watch Chicago's middle class disappear before your very eyes between 1970 and 2012.  You don't have to do anything but click on Amazing Graphic Shows Chicago's Middle Class Disappear Before Your Eyes. A map at the bottom of the article automatically changes, and shows the movement and erosion of Chicago's middle class by comparing the wealth demographic map of Chicago consecutively for the following years - 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, 2007 and 2012.

I have not, of course, verified the data that underlies the "evolving map".

China - growth and other concerns

Amid what seems to be ever increasing concern across many countries over low inflation, deflationary trends, and resultant prospective economic growth, you might want to peruse one or more of the following articles published in the past few days that focus on China's economy. China in particular, and other emerging markets have for some time been thought to be important drivers of global GDP growth where GDP growth rates in the developed countries have been seen since 2008 as less than satisfactory.
