Simulacron: Backtrackin'

When I got started on these Simulacron posts, it seemed redundant to show this graph

Graph #1: Excel's Exponential Formulas for the Early and Late Periods

among the others in my post of the 25th. Redundant.

But now it becomes important to show the exponential trend formulas generated by Excel. And to know the growth rates of the two periods.

Early Period, 1947Q1 - 1979Q4: 3.735% annual rate

Late Period, 1980Q1 - 2007Q4: 2.9775% annual rate

A difference of about 0.7575% -- less that one percent annual.
