Several readers recently pointed-out that the quarterly statistics for GDP growth in Germany and the USA cited in our recent posting Amerikanische Verhältnisse vs. German Conditions were derived using different mathematical approaches. The German numbers on our GDP graph represented actual quarter-by-quarter change while the US numbers represented annualized quarter-by-quarter change. Several commenters correctly observed that, because of the different methodologies used to derive the statistics, our comparison was one of apples and oranges. We have therefore replaced the original graphic with a more accurate, updated version that compares annual GDP change in both nations since 1998. We want to thank our readers for their valuable input. The fact that several of you were savvy enough to catch such a fine distinction is testament to the quality of our readership.
