This is a big, beautiful chart of GDP since 2007 put together by Doug Short.

Two things stand out in the current quarter.

First is that the consumer — the blue bar — really stepped it up in a big way, fueling the lift.

The other thing that stands out is that government consumption, purple, stopped being a drag on things.
