Chart of the day...

I don't have much to add other than to say I find this interesting. Much of the talk over the past 30 years has focused on the fact that we've gone from a goods producing economy to a knowledge-based service economy. This chart seems to dispute that claim.
The chart is a little misleading because our population has more than doubled since the 1930s so you'd expect a corresponding increase in government employees, but it makes for an eye catching chart :)
