Staggering ineptitude. Then again "Might is Right."

History will judge the U.S as the main reason for the lack of our species development; trust them to do the right thing only when they've exhausted all other options. All that money, all those resources and they can't even help their own populace. Disgraceful.

The house price to income ratio is the ratio of the cost of a typical upscale housing unit of 100 square metres, compared to the countrys GDP per capita. Normally this ratio will be much higher in low income countries than in high income countries.

The formula is: (Price per square metre / GDP per capita)*100. The house price to income ratios published by the Global Property Guide are based on the Global Property Guides own proprietary in-house research, but we use the IMFs GDP per capita figures.

Is it charts you're looking for...

US Unemployment correlation with recession periods.


That's quite a striking chart. Here is a bit more on the U.S. Unemployment data...



Looking at previous recessions, the unemployment rate spikes very quickly, a useful leading indicator of WTSHTF?
