Reader Exchange: Deck the Halls—with Infographics
As you take down holiday decorations in your workspace, consider putting up something almost as colorful and even more thought-provoking: some of our new infographics on subjects related to the economy. One illustrates the history of dissenting votes on the Federal Open Market Committee; it highlights key data from a recent article in our research journal, the Review. Another one breaks down the pros and cons of traditional and alternative providers of financial services (from banks to pawnshops). The changing landscape of housing market conditions around the country is the subject of a third graphic; it promotes the Housing Market Conditions report, which is available from the St. Louis Fed. These and more can be seen below. When you click on each image, you will be taken to its home, where you can read related text and print the infographic yourself.
The Regional Economist offers insights on regional, national and international issues. Views expressed are not necessarily those of the St. Louis Fed or Federal Reserve System.
