STATE OF THE U.S. ECONOMY AND SOCIETY
Edward J. Dodson, M.L.A.
The PowerPoint presentations provided here report on most of the important sectors of the
United States economy as well as important benchmarks of the well-being of the members of our society.
This material represents a significant expansion of the twice-yearly report I have for a decade prepared for delivery in
the classroom and for distribution to subscribers. From this point on, the report will be updated annually and
delivered as a semester-long course.
I continue to make this report available without restriction concerning use of the material. However, as the images,
charts and graphs are taken from websites found on the internet, I cannot assert that all of the material is
exempt from copyright restrictions under the fair use doctrine. None of the images utilized are marked with
a copyright notation.
