Case closed: The Reagan Recovery vs. the Obama Recovery in two charts

In a new book on the economic performance of the twelve U.S. presidents since World War Two, the author ranks Ronald Reagan 8th and Barack Obama 9th.

Now I wrote yesterday why I think the book’s rating system is flawed overall, and specifically why Reagan deserves a much high ranking — if not the top ranking.

But it is also extremely weird that Reagan and Obama are right next to each other. And I think these next two charts demonstrate why it is so strange.

Full story.
