Looking for up-to-date U.S. economic indicators?

This blog typically tracks the Utah economy. However, we don't exactly live in an economic vacuum, so it's also important to also keep track of the national economy. In my opinion, one of the best one-stop sources of U.S. economic information is the New York Federal Reserve Bank's website.

Why do I like this site? First, they track a wide variety of economic indicators. Second, they chart the data. All good economists know a picture (graph) is worth a thousand words. Plus, if you really want to know what is going on in the economy, it's important to watch the overall trends--not just month-to-month snippets of data. Finally, the NY Fed does a great job of keeping their indicators current.

Here's their site: http://www.newyorkfed.org/research/national_economy/


Enjoy!
