A Good Bubble Chart About the Bust
After quite sometime I have come across this really well done bubble chart. Checkout where did all the money go? (requires flash) on Guardian.
Instead of overwhelming us with all the bubbles at once, they have used simple animation to tell the story. I think, bubbles worked in this case also due to the astronomical size of numbers (although very sad). For example, the smallest bubble represents central bank gold reserves, where as the largest bubble represents the great asset bubble or the percieved value of all assets (before the recession hit us and the bubble is busted).
Not all data has the same pattern, which is all the more reason why bubbles are not good for all situations.
What do you think about the where did all the money go data visualization? cool or not so?
