March 2011, Federal Reserve Beige Book in a Cloud

 

Every month the Federal Reserve releases its Beige Book, which reports anecdotally on the economic activity in all 12 Fed districts.  Who in their right mind would want to read it; it’s 17,385 words long, after all?  So for the lazy, there’s Wordle.  I pasted the entire report into Wordle, and it produced this word cloud.  Wordle makes the most-frequently-occuring words the largest.
