A lot can happen in the course of a year. Things that seemed impossible in January can be commonplace by December, and things that were inevitable may never transpire. One of the fun things about writing on Means to a Trend is that I can go back and see what I was thinking about and watching in past months and years.
I reviewed all of my posts from the year and chose one chart or table from each. Here’s the culmination of my work in 2021:
