Let’s test your analytical skills–Pro-business rulings of the Supreme Court over time

Assume the following figure representing the Court’s business decisions between 1946 through 2011 is accurate.  The higher the peak, the more “pro-business” the Court was during that time frame.  The lower the peak, the more “anti-business” the Court was during that time frame.

Don’t worry about the two lines representing decisions or votes.  For practical purposes, they are the same. Don’t cheat.  Just analyze the figure, don’t go looking for its source.

What does this figure tell you about whether the current Court is “radically” pro-business? Let me know what you think.
