Wages in a recession, Markit value, computer parts and fruitJAZZ is a popular category in the iTunes music store. But it also leads the growth in sales of actual apples (a spherical, pomaceous fruit; species Malus domestica). Sales of jazz apples grew around 75% between 2009 and 2013, while cox and granny smith are falling. Other charts in this week’s issue include one showing how real wages continue to fall compared to peak wages 21 months after the financial crises began, in contrast with other recessions in which wages began to grow after about a nine months. A bar chart compares Taiwanese computer parts suppliers—the obscure firms that make the innards for our digital devices. A contact sheet of this week’s infographics is available to download here.
