Visualize Our Lopsided Economy

16 Jul

I’m often impressed by how some people with better graphic skills than me can put together graphs and charts that explain key aspects of our economy that are easy to understand but not over-simplified.  The Telltale Chart website is one of the best, including this graphic, Robber Barons Revisited showing the increasing share of our GDP that goes to owners (versus workers).  The ConnecttheDotsUSA website has this fantastic graphic revealing Wealth Distribution: Perception vs. Reality. It reveals that Americans are much more egalitarian than most media or politicians give them credit for. And thanks to the progressive think tank Demos for this series of easy-to-read charts tracking the reality of poverty.
