[Infographic] [U.S.] The History Of The American Recession

Earlier we shared an infographic on some sobering unemployment numbers left behind by the recent recession. Here’s another infographic, this time another an easy (if painful) look at the history of recession in the United States since the Great Depression of the 1930s to today’s recession brought about the sub-prime mortgage implosion.

And although today’s numbers don’t look quite as scary as those terrible years during the Great Depression, we’re still dipping into the worst unemployment numbers since the recession that came off post World War II.

And that’s a cause for worry.
