Three morning newsbits
See how they run:
Calculated Risk - prime working age population growing again. This chart:

New Deal Demoncrat - five charts to watch in 2015. Mortgage refinancing is coming back to life, low gas prices are putting more money in people's pockets, labour force data is mixed, and he thinks nominal wage growth finally comes back in H2 2015.
Mickey Fulp - the real cost of mining gold (pdf). A great article on the accounting cock-up that explains why gold miners haven't made shareholders any money. This is an all-new Mickey we're seeing, read it.
