It’s good to have another interesting look at the DJIA.  I found an inflation adjusted version from the “word out” blog.  Interesting to think that there are times when inflation wipes out the gains of the stock market.  This blogger mentions the ’70s as a real strange example–the actual wealth in the Dow Jones actually went down despite the index going up.  Maybe this stock market thing isn’t as good as we think.

Maybe I’ll find a linear graph to put up there instead of this logarithmic.
