Data on U.S. productivity and income

Editor

The following graph is sourced to an article by Bill Marsh in the New York Times. It compares the time evolution of U.S. productivity and wages. Similar statistical data is available for Australia. It also provides additional evidence that a new economic era identified with neo-liberalism began with the accession to office of the Reagan and Thatcher governments around 1980.
