Leading Economic Index graph

The Conference Board Leading Economic Index attempts to forecast upcoming changes in the economy. Notice the slight uptick over the past two months.

Economist and blogger Rebecca Wilder notes more signs of recovery here and here.


  1. I liked the anonymous comment posters post better than hers. A lot more facts in there.
