Money: THE Graphic

You don’t have to be an economics major to appreciate this graphic which gives the best graphical representation of the economy, from the cost of a dozen apples to the cost of the Iraq War. An innovative use of units to demonstrate the true relative values of economic activities in the U.S. in 2011.

If you look at one graphic this week, make sure it’s this one. Just be sure to leave yourself some procrastination time.
