My Favorite Economics Data Page

Okay, here's a late Christmas gift.

One of the best resources for data about the economy is the St Louis Federal Reserve Data resource, Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED). I see lots of links to charts from this site and the data is extensive. It is great for deep historical data and Fed monetary data, but for a quick overall snapshot of the economy, the Treasury has an awesome page. Their Data and Charts Center is the best single web page resource on the economy. From that page you are only one or two clicks away from any recent economic data. Click on he Monitoring the Economy link and you will know what I mean, and of course the interest rate data is extensive.

Merry Christmas!
