Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Public and Private Investment

One not particularly cute graph; no analysis, explanation, nor editorializing.

GDPI is gross domestic private investment.

NDGIC96 is Real Federal Nondefense Gross Investment.

SLINVC96 is Real State & Local Government Gross Investment.

Source page at FRED.

Note that private investment runs at about 7 times the total of government investment at all levels.

Make of it what you will.
