US Economic Growth and Personal Income Growth 1968-2014

I started reading Berkshire Hathaway's annual letter this morning and it starts off a little bullish on what 2% GDP growth means to the average (upper middle class) citizen. I thought I'd take a look at what those historical numbers were. I dug into the World Bank and US Census data and I made some graphs.

The easiest data to find only went back to 1967, though the world bank went back to 1960 on GDP and population numbers. The census data covers the presidencies of Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama.
