10 Scary Charts

Ted Kavadas has 10 scary charts posted at Seeking Alpha, and they are scary indeed. The first one surprised me, showing housing starts are not rising to healthy levels as I was led to believe by the MSM, but is rather hovering at the level of historical lows.

This one, on the other hand, is no surprise as it is a topic to which I pay closer attention — the seemingly never-ending “jobless recovery”:

Labor Force Participation Rate 62.7 percent

I recommend glancing at all 10, but brace yourself first.
