The Data Daily: Where the charts tell the story

In this week's Macro Monday,  we look at the graphs of GDP trends for the US, Eurozone, Japan, and China.  We see a clear difference in GDP trends around the globe, especially in the US, where there has been a significant uptick in GDP in the wake of stimulative fiscal policy.  EU and Japanese economic growth remain range bound -- not a new phenomenon.  China has seen a slow downtick in its reported GDP trend.
