What is FTLOTM?

Unemployment, inflation and interest.
All in one place.

For the Love of the Money is a web application built by Lexie Heinle and Alex Lucke for JOUR491, a special topics class focused on news applications. Increasing attention on the stagnation of interest rates provided an ideal platform for an interactive economic website. We found interest, unemployment and inflation rates for the past 65 years and made the information easier to comprehend. It's all here, in graphics and visuals, so you can love it too.
