If you want to get a pulse of global finances (and feel scared) then this is the place to go. They have a world map with each country having square bubbles of the leading company stocks traded there. The bubble size represents the market capitalization and the color for the price movement. As you can immediately see, the world is red, deep red. [via Information Aesthetics]

NY Times tries to answer the important question: “Can a president tame the business cycle?” by looking in to the past and plotting how each of the past US presidents have managed various key parameters. As usual, awesome work by the NYT Team. [via Infographic News]

    @Jacques: NYT does awesome job with their visualizations. They are one of my favorites (and inspirations) for chart making

  4. Apart for gridlines that are a little too dark I believe, I also like very much what people do at Business Week (print version). Really neat visualization.
