Federal Spending V Revenues – Log Scale

Federal Spending V Revenues - Log Scale

Yesterday, I posted the above graph in a nominal scale and someone asked what it would look like in Log Scale to take out the time skew of more recent changes being in larger dollars. The above graph plots the same information on a Log Scale and you can see the impact of WW1, the Great Depression, and WW2 much clearer.

Very interesting. Many thanks to Doug for the suggestion!
