CHART OF THE DAY: Strong Dollar, Rising Gas Prices and U.S. Presidents - z Chart of the Day

...[Y]ou’ll recall that a #StrongDollar is the only long-term pattern of purchasing power strength that Americans have enjoyed. In fact, a #StrongDollar was coincident with two of the most popular Presidents in US history:

  1. 1983-1989 (Reagan) had the strongest of #StrongDollars (see Chart of The Day), sub $20/oil and ~4% real GDP
  2. 1993-1999 (Clinton) had the 2nd strongest USD period and average < $20 Oil with ~4% GDP too

So, maybe… just maybe – everyone is staring at the tree ahead of this week’s Federal Reserve decision (Thursday) instead of the forest.
