Buffett’s Favorite Economic Indicator, Job Interview with a Hedge Fund

Rail Traffic

Didn’t Buffett say that if asked to choose one economic indicator his would be rail traffic?

See page 19 which shows a 90% correlation past six years between change in total carload rail traffic and GDP growth.

Recent carloads are up versus past year 2.3% (November 2010) and past month .9% (vs. October 2011).
