Growth in Nominal Spending Has Crashed

By on November 6, 2009

Professor David Beckworth’s blog has a very interesting chart on the trend of nominal spending growth since 1960. It shows strongly growing spending until the early 1980’s, followed by a moderation until around 2007, and now a crash.

SMA Comment: It will be interesting to see if nominal spending can recover significantly from here. There will be a trend reversal, but the question will be to what degree.
