RTÉ News - Election 2016 - The economy explained in six charts

A lot of the opposition parties are using mantras like "there is no recovery" "there is a recovery but it's not fair" "there is a recovery but this govt are risking it" etc.
Anyway, Rte have just put together a "at a glance guide to the economy" and it puts to bed all of the above arguments. It's very clear, that across all the economic indicators from employment figures to the consumer price index to grocery rates that we are now in a very strong growth stage. All the other "but but but..." stories are just whataboutery. The facts are contained in the charts for all to see.
