Demystifying Economic Data

The economic policies we choose today will profoundly impact how fast the economy grows, how the government spends its scarce revenues, the size of the government’s debt, and whether the baby boomers can afford to retire. These policies will also determine our future prosperity, and the prosperity of our children.

Since the consequences are so high, it is imperative that these decisions are based on a sound understanding of the data. This is the mission of EconoSTATS.

EconoSTATS is an educational resource designed to help readers put the disparate, and often contradictory, economic data into perspective. EconoSTATS clarifies the data helping readers better judge for themselves which economic policies they believe are worthy of support.
