U.S. Unemployment Rate
synthetic polymer on paper
23½ x 31½ in. (59.7 x 80 cm.)
Executed circa 1984.

It's going up for auction next month. Estimated sale price: $20,000-$30,000. If that's too much for you, you might consider "Medical Inflation," also on the block, and expected to go for $15,000-$20,000.
