By the Billion.

Like cool visualizations? Like information? (Of course you do, you’re here, aren’t you?) Want to wile away a few hours? A co-worker sent me a link to this chart he saw on The Big Picture. It’s spending in billions (adjusted for today’s dollars) on random stuff color-coded by “spending, earning, giving, fighting, losing, and illin’.” (Click for a larger size.)


This image originally came from Information is Beautiful, a blog of information organized into really pretty charts and visualizations. Go forth and be aesthetically informed!
