The Committee does not have a fixed definition of economic activity. It examines and compares the behavior of various measures of broad activity: real GDP measured on the product and income sides, economy-wide employment, and real income. The Committee also may consider indicators that do not cover the entire economy, such as real sales and the Federal Reserve's index of industrial production (IP). The Committee's use of these indicators in conjunction with the broad measures recognizes the issue of double-counting of sectors included in both those indicators and the broad measures. Still, a well-defined peak or trough in real sales or IP might help to determine the overall peak or trough dates, particularly if the economy-wide indicators are in conflict or do not have well-defined peaks or troughs.
This mini water cycle will give you a first-hand glimpse at how
water moves through this process on earth. After the bowl has
been snugly covered with plastic wrap, drops of condensation
will start to form in the sun. These large drops of water on the
plastic wrap will drip back into the bowl and coffee mug below.
If you would like to speed up the condensation process, cooler
temperatures help; carefully move the bowl with water into the
shade without splashing into the coffee mug.
Allow the process of condensation to continue and wait a few moments before peeling back the plastic wrap. You will notice that water from the large “ocean” inside of the bowl has evaporated into the atmosphere, or plastic wrap. Once the droplets of condensation on the plastic wrap grow too heavy, they fall as rain back to the earth, or the coffee mug.
I got excited about the statistics as this gives some benchmarks while planning a trip. What for me devalued it is knowing that at least one adventurer in this list has good sponsorship agreements behind him. 6 k median might be an benchmark but is does not take into account circumstances where you don’t have sponsors nor international network of friends who support with couch surfing if needed as well regular passive income. Especially the latter is the key moment… I feel this overview needs a disclaimer for all the young adventurers to develop an understanding that there more behind the curtain than trip budget numbers that help you excel in dreams. Still great overview!
