The Billion Dollar-o-Gram
This image arose out of frustration with media reporting of billion dollar amounts. That is, that they’re meaningless without context. But they’re continually reported as self-evident facts. 500 b... illion for this war. 50 billion for this pipeline. Literally mind-boggling amounts of money. So here we’ve scraped reported figures from The New York Times, The Guardian, and other news outlets and visualized them as a treemap. So you can see in one place figures that would otherwise be scattered across multiple news reports. -- David McCandless
