NZ Real GDP htmlwidget

Thought I would try my hand at generating an interactive JavaScript line graph using R. Thankfully the dygraphs package makes this very easy!

The code below generates an interactive plot of New Zealand’s real GDP through time. I have added some annotations displaying some of the major financial crises. It is as if the economy fell of a cliff during the GFC!

I would highly recommend you give this package a look. The static images really don’t do it justice.
