  2. It is a bit misleading to look at long term data on a linear chart. If you look at a logarithmic chart and estimate a long term trendline, you get what I’ve linked to as my website.

    Of course a trendline is affected by every data point in the series, and should always be taken with a grain of salt.

    However if you believe in reading charts, it would be likely that we’re entering a period, much like 1940-55 or 1970-95 where we trend parallel to but below the long-run average. That long run average appears to be roughly 9000 for early 2009.

    Of course, grain of salt added, I don’t know what I’m talking about. If I did, I’d be rich by now.
