I don't understand the economy. Not before the crisis, and certainly not since. (It's a good thing I can draw funny pictures.) It seems like every week I hear in the news some new indicator or report that suggests that something may or may not be the cause or something else that might possibly mean something good could be coming some time. It's exhausting. So one day while hearing about the latest consumer confidence numbers, I chose to take aim at statistics and the above cartoon was born.
