There Is No Recovery

John Williams of Shadowstats.com produces his own statistics based on government data. Most of what he does is merely adjust government data to make it consistent with prior methodology. He has a fascinating website which I encourage you to visit. His is a subscription service, but much information is available to non-subscribers.

Mr. Williams appeared at the Casey Research Recovery Reality Check where he presented information as to why there is no recovery. An interview with Mr. Williams is available here.
