Most Important Economic Graphs of 2011
Very interesting read. The range of the graphs cover an extremely broad spectrum, graphing in detail the impact of the recession on everything from GDP to solar investment to the Plank Curve in 2011. Of course they're no Minard graphs, but they provide some very interesting information. My personal favorite is the graph comparing Swedish and Finnish bond yields, in which Joseph Weisenthal of Business Insider pointed out that investors loved countries that printed their own money, contrary to the idea of "punishing the printer." Of course, correlation by no means equals causation, and there are a host of other factors, such as the Eurozone crisis, that precipitated in the spike in Finnish 10-Year Bond yields the same time of the drop in Swedish 10-Year Bond yields.
