So I thought it would be fantastic if we started a thread that has some visual charts related to the global meltdown. I personally, am a very visual person and get much more out of a chart/graph than a list of numbers. I recently found this one that puts our unemployment issue into perspective.

Please take a look and provide any links/charts you come across. Thanks!

Here's a few...

Job losses in recent recessions (2009, 2001, 1990):

As you can see, job loss has not slowed and it's going to get a lot worse.

Household Assets (1987-2009):

We're likely going back to pre-Y2K levels.

Household Real Estate Value and Household Mortgage Debt as Percentage of GDP:

As you can see, asset values are falling, but debt is not. Some economists think that this sort of debt deflation is the cause of depressions.

Total Household Net Worth as Percent of GDP:

Things were pretty stable, until those darn bubbles.

Star and flag from me. The animation really drove home the point of just where we are going and how bod it is becoming. I don't like to play fearmonger and generally support the power of American ingenuity, but this is really scary.
